Thank you card for my Vet.

Thursday November 12, 2015
 
As you probably saw last week. We lost our little fur baby.. We had to say goodbye to him and it's been a very rough week. I know each day is better than the day before.. but we still find times we cry. One of those was in making this card for the veterinary Dr. and his staff.. I added a little photo of him to the front.. I will deliver it to him when I go to pick up his ashes.  I don't know if you all know but there is a place in Washington State called Artful Ashes   which is now for human ashes made into a heart or a ball about the size of a cue ball .. We used them two years ago when we had to say goodbye to our other little fur baby (she was 15.5 yrs old) (this little fur baby was 12.8 yrs old)  Now they have grown their business they added a new page called
 Rainbow bridge hearts for pets.. anyhow.. they send you a tin and you put a  tablespoons of ash in it and return it to Artful ashes.  they then make a heart or ball using some of the ashes so you have this lovely glass piece and their ashes are incorporated in it.. because we live in WA. we drove up to watch them make our little fur girls heart and then couple weeks later met half way with the owner Greg to receive our lovely glass heart.  We will do the same for our fur boy ..they now just send you the finished heart after it's cured. Richard now runs the Rainbow bridge pet end of the business.  I know you wont be disappointed if you used them.  Lot's of people use them for love one in any form.  I hope you check out the site. I will post his heart and the heart we got for our girl fur baby some time in December.

Like the card w/ photo. Sorry for your fur baby loss. Saw your name entered at DRS Designs. We had to put our fur baby of 14 yrs down early last yr. Aug of last yr we adopted a 7 yr old Lab/Retriever and she has brought joy back to me.

Making a thank you card for your veterinary surgeon is such a thoughtful thing to do, especially when you are in so much pain. Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
