A sad day at the Graham house….. we had to put down our 11 year old dog Cole.  Chris and I got her right after our first year of marriage, she went with us everywhere, she was our baby.  As children came along she welcomed them into the mix, she was not the main attraction anymore but was a great addition to our family.  Chris and I knew this was coming, imminent over the last couple of weeks.  I realized that I really didn’t have any great pictures of her and the kids, I have been so bad about photographing my own kids let alone the dog, so I asked my great friend Ronnie to come over and take some pics of the whole family and then kids with Cole.  He was so gracious and thoughtful and brought his treasured Polaroid so the kids would have immediate pictures, they loved them and quickly raced down and stuck on their bulletin boards over their beds.   After Ronnie’s visit we went to a friends house and then brought them home after it was over to tell them the sad news.   Wow – that was hard, it breaks your heart to see your babies sob, we went over again our belief of eternal families and told them that Cole was happy now bounding around in heaven without any pain.  What a day…..we’ll miss you Cole.
