Being able to photograph my cat and dog customers for their parents and the joy they get from seeing their kids, either part way through the work day or while away on vacation, is so great.
I am convinced some of my furry customers actually pose for pictures (OK - maybe not, but it sure looks that way sometimes).
Back to technology ... remember what it was like before smartphones? Before we could snap a picture with our phones, attach it to a text, and the next instant, the recipient is smiling, staring at their furry kid's most adorable face? It still amazes me when I stop to think about it.
Going back to a time before e-mail and texting and cell phones. I agree the pace has picked up and that sometimes communication can get a little fragmented, but somehow, it seems worth the smiles and the laughs and the emphatic thank you's I get from my furry customers' parents.
I love what I do and am so happy I can capture some of those moments ... isn't technology amazing?
