Utrata ukochanego zwierzęcia jest bolesna i pełna łez. Fotograf, Ross Taylor uwiecznił na zdjęciach surową rzeczywistość pożegnania zwierzęcia z właścicielem. Powstałe obrazy są szczerymi i pełnymi szacunku dowodami niezaprzeczalnych więzi między ludźmi a ich towarzyszami. Zdjęcia są bardzo emocjonalne, przygotujcie chusteczki.

Śmierć zwierzęcia to trauma, którą wielu z nas doświadczyło lub doświadczy. Gdy człowiek przez lata opiekuje się, wszystkiego uczy i troszczy się o swojego czworonożnego przyjaciela, moment odejścia za przysłowiowy „tęczowy most” jest pełen bólu i łez. Dla wielu ludzi strata psa porównywalna jest do straty związanej ze śmiercią bliskiej osoby. Trudno wyobrazić sobie, że nie przywita nas więcej merdający ogon czy miauczenie. Przez lata codziennego życia ze zwierzęciem, zawiązuje się silna więź, a decyzja o eutanazji czworonoga jest jedną z najtrudniejszych do podjęcia w naszym życiu.

Fotograf, Ross Taylor tworzył esej fotograficzny pt. „Last Moments” (ostatnie chwile), dokumentując ostatnie momenty przed i po śmierci ukochanego zwierzaka – intensywne świadectwo więzi, pełne bólu. W skali kraju dziesiątki tysięcy właścicieli zwierząt domowych każdego roku przeżywa to bolesne doświadczenie. Ten smutek nie powinien zostać przeoczony, ani zminimalizowany przez innych.

Mamy nadzieję, że ludzie nigdy nie powiedzą komuś po stracie zwierzaka, „Och, to tylko pies” lub „To tylko kot, możesz mieć następnego”. Ważne, aby szanować ból, który wiąże się ze stratą czworonożnego przyjaciela.

This is a long post, so bear with me, but I want the pending images to have proper context. Over the past couple of years, I’ve been working on a photographic project and feature-length film that explores the last moments people share with their pets before and after an at-home pet euthanasia. · I recognize this topic carries a lot of emotional weight. I have an immense amount of respect for those who are going through this. It’s one of the most intense moments I’ve ever witnessed. The human animal-bond is one that shouldn’t be overlooked – when someone says they’re going through the loss of a pet, I now more fervently understand just how devastating that can be. Those who are going through this, I can attest that at-home pet euthanasia can be a much more peaceful passing. If you’re going through this now, feel free to reach out for support. · I reached out to a number of organizations while exploring this topic and one – Lap of Love, responded immediately. I can’t thank Paula Ford enough for responding to that email. Her kindness opened the connection with the founder, Dr.Dani McVety. I’m also profoundly thankful to Dani for her trust while documenting these sacred spaces. She is one of the most impressive people I have ever met. · I also want to thank all the veterinarians, and the rest of the staff at Lap of Love. This thanks also includes the folks at Caring Pathways in Denver. All of them are amazing people, and have my deep respect. · I appreciate Thomas Simonetti and the folks over at Washington Post Visuals for taking the care and time to publish the images as well. Thomas, thank you so much. Thank you once again to the Washington Post for publishing this. I'm exceedingly grateful: https://wapo.st/2F4xfiu Over the next week or so I’ll be posting images from the project. Image caption: Olesya Lykovi cries out in anguish, moments after the death of her dog, Sam. Moments before, she looked at Dr. Dani McVety, at right and asked, “Is he gone?” Dani nodded and said, “He has his wings now.” #love #pets #lastmoments

In a quiet and tender moment, Kimberly Manrique looks at Sparky, just after the dog was put to sleep. While difficult, the at-home euthanasia process can be one that mitigates some of the painful reality of the end of life. It’s worth noting that the vets I’ve worked with are some of the most compassionate people I’ve met, and always offer the families a chance to have a respectful moment afterwards with their beloved pet.

“It’s tough saying goodbye,” said Carrie Peterson after she dropped sunflowers over the grave of her dog, Asia. The smell of freshly turned earth is what I remember, and how peaceful Asia looked within it. This is the final post of the “Last Moments” series here on Instagram. I’ll be working to complete a feature-length film on the topic this year, thanks largely with help from @lukerafferty. • There are not enough words which can convey how much this project has impacted me. Life can be profoundly difficult, and for many, our pets are a respite from the challenges of life. I can not possibly thank Dr. Dani McVety, the veterinarians and staff at Lap of Love and the folks over at Caring Pathways enough for trusting me. • Importantly, I also thank all of the families who have let me into their lives. This couldn’t be done without them. Thank you all so much. • “Last Moments,” is a photo essay that explores the intimacy of the human-animal bond – specifically, the last moments before, and after, the passing of a pet at home with their owner. It is a somber, and intense, testimony to the bond and the pain that comes when it is broken. • This series looks at the intense connection shared between people and their pets. The decision to have at-home pet euthanasia is part of an emerging trend (to have end of life care in the home, instead of in a clinic). Nationally, scores of pet owners go through this painful experience each year. It’s important to note the immense care and compassion that the veterinarian community demonstrates towards the families going through this. • It's also important for people going through this to know they're not alone in their grief, and importantly, that their grief is not to be taken lightly. #love #pets #lastmoments •
