The phone call went a little something like this, “Hey Kristin, this is Franco calling (insert the tears).” My heart DROPPED. He continued, “This doesn’t have anything to do with our wedding. We just arrived home from the veterinarian. Our dog, Bobo, is not going to make it.” My heart PLUMMETED! He simply asked, “We would like to have family pictures of us before he goes. We only have a short time left with him. Would you take them?”
“110% YES, I thought!”
Although I was not raised around animals (well, actually we had a couple of doberman’s growing up)…still, for some reason I’ve never had a burning desire to own a pet (clearly I realize that is about to change as I know one day soon we’ll be hearing, “Mommy PLEASE can we get a puppy, PLEASEEEEEEE!”). Cathy & Franco, on the otherhand, have had Bobo for 13 years (well, Cathy anyway). He actually travelled all the way from HONG KONG! Cathy described how he was just a baby when she first got him.
Please keep this precious, sweet couple in your thoughts and prayers. Bobo is a precious being of God that is suffering from nasty, cancerous tumors. After several opinions it was determined that they are too deep and inoperable.
Thank you, Cathy and Franco. I’m blessed to be part of this journey with YOU!
