The bond between a dog and its owner is ᴜɴʙʀᴇᴀᴋᴀʙʟᴇ. It is a bond built on trust, love, and unconditional devotion. For many people, dogs are not just pets, but rather a crucial part of their family. Lᴏsɪɴɢ a companion can be ᴅᴇᴠᴀsᴛᴀᴛɪɴɢ, and for one dog owner, the ʟᴏss of his dearest dog has ʟᴇꜰᴛ him in ᴛᴇᴀʀs and ɪɴᴄᴏɴsᴏʟᴀʙʟᴇ.
Last Moments Of Dearest Dog!
Last Moments is an impressive set of photos by Pulitzer Prize-nominated photographer Ross Taylor, who was invited to capture the previous intimate moments of a beloved pet’s life as owners ꜰᴀᴄᴇ ᴘᴀɪɴғᴜʟ sᴇᴘᴀʀᴀᴛɪᴏɴ.

A moment ago, she looked at Dr. Dani McVety, on the right and asked, “Is he ɢᴏɴᴇ?” Dani nodded and said, “It has wings now.” “I tried to do more; I tried to do all I could. But they said there was nothing I could do,” said Olesya Lykovi, ᴄʀʏɪɴɢ as she ʟᴏss her dog. On the left are her sister, Kimberly, and veterinarian Nil Wilkins (unseen), who then reached out to comfort her.
A Best Friend
“She has always been my companion. Coco was there for me when he was ᴅᴇᴘʟᴏʏᴇᴅ,” said Olesya Lykovi, holding back ᴛᴇᴀʀs. Her husband, Drew (right), is in the army and also sᴛʀᴜɢɢʟɪɴɢ in his ʟᴀsᴛ moments.
During the sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ, Dr. McVety reassured her with a hug and comforting words: “This is a better ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ than any of us have ever received.”
Taylor was inspired to film his camera on the subject after his good friend made the ᴘᴀɪɴꜰᴜʟ decision to ᴋɪʟʟ her ᴀɪʟɪɴɢ dog.
Taylor told the Washington Post: “When someone tells me they’re ɢʀᴀᴘᴘʟɪɴɢ with the ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ of a pet, my ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ᴀᴄʜᴇs for them. “I was deeply moved to witness her sᴛʀᴜɢɢʟᴇ and love for her dog.”
“It’s hard to say goodbye,” says Olesya Lykovi after dropping sunflowers on her dog’s ɢʀᴀᴠᴇ. I remember the smell of freshly plowed earth and how peaceful it was.
For Olesya Lykovi, the ʟᴏss of Sam was more than just the ᴘᴀssɪɴɢ of a pet. It was the ʟᴏss of a best friend, a loyal companion, and a crucial part of his family. Sam’s ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ had ʟᴇꜰᴛ a ɢᴀᴘɪɴɢ hole in Olesya’s heart, and she would never forget the love and joy that her dear friend had brought into her life.
