A while back I had a customer contact me with a request for a memory keepsake for her friend. That friend was losing her longtime four-legged companion to an illness and was having a really hard time with it. So, in memory of her beloved pet, I created a keepsake for her. And as it turned out, a friend of mine had just lost her longtime pet, unexepectedly, as well...he was a beautiful dog that she and her husband had since he was a puppy many years ago. He truly was like their child. They adored and cherished him. So I knew I had to create a keepsake for her as well.
After creating these memory keepsakes for both this sweet customer and my friend as well, I decided to list it in my shop for any of you out there who might like a little keepsake around to remember your beloved furry friends as well.
Growing up, my family and I always had dogs, so I remember very well how terribly sad I was to lose them. Snooky(the original Snooky, folks!) and Gizmo(yes, I grew up in the 80's) were my besties when I was a kid, as you can see below. This photo was taken early one morning after my mom found me relaxing in the "pool" with my favorite little pooch, Snooky. As a child I was an early riser(don't know what happened there) and I would always be the first one up. This, below, was a regular occurance at my house. I'll have to dig up some of those old photos of Snooky dressed in baby clothes and a bonnet laying happily in my doll carriage. I pushed that pooch all around the neighborhood in that thing! So, needless to say, Snooky was a very well loved four-legged friend and I just loved him to pieces.
