The Hardest Day
Sarah Bird-Gomez, left, holds her wife, Karol Bird-Gomez, shortly after their dog, Drake, was euthanized. As their dog passed, Karol whispered, “Oh Drake, where are you going? You’re so loved, Drake, you’re so loved.” Drake was 12 years old and suffered from myriad health issues. “No more pain, no more pain,” Karol softly said to Drake. This photograph was made on September 1, 2022.
