The only meaningful photo I made in 2016, and I wish it wasn't
Lens: Pentax SMCP-FA 645 80-160mm Camera: Pentax 645NII Photo Location: Iowa ISO: 100

I'm pretty certain this won't win any contest, but I share it as my "Best of 2016" because it's the last photo I ever made with my beloved golden retriever, Fenris. He died two days later. There aren't any other photos of him after we went on this walk at one of his favorite haunts. I had a whole day, in between, where I didn't take a single picture of him. He was ill but we thought he'd recover.

To this point: take the pictures you don't think will matter. Sometimes they will.

And Fenris - I miss you, buddy. Every. Single. Day.

Very sorry to hear that Fenris passed away. This is a lovely photograph that shows the mutual love beautifully.
There could not be a better " last " photograph IMO.

I agree and couldn't say it better.

Great post--I think a lot of us here aspire to be worthy of our dogs. Don't wait too long to open your household to another pup, though--my wife and I were over a decade between dogs, and only now realize that we missed out on a lot of joy in the meantime.
