It was a sad day yesterday, we had to send our 1 year old Lettie over the Rainbow Bridge. She had been deteriorating rapidly and her quality of life was quickly passing. It was just one year ago that we had to put another great dog, Pepper, down. Hopefully, they are romping and playing together on the other side. She will be very sorely missed. Play, run and chase bunnies, Baby Girl!

Oh Vicky, I'm so sorry about your baby girl. I know how sad saying goodbye can be. Our little Cairn Terrier Chelsea, is 14 yrs. old and deteriorating, too. She has arthritis and now cataracts, and I know that her time is short, as well.
Your loving card tribute to your Lettie will be a wonderful reminder of how special she was. Hugs and blessings for a brighter day ahead!

OUCH! I am in the same place today with my white shepherd of 12 years. She can hardly stand anymore and I know she is in a lot of pain but it's breaking my heart to take her to the vet for the final time. Not sure if I'll be able to do it. Great card to make for your dog's memory. Time heals.

So very sorry for you loss. We lost our beautiful girl a couple of years ago, and I miss her every day. Her picture is in my stamping room, so she is still with me. They leave such a huge whole in our hearts, but know she is happy and healthy now, and watching you every day. God Bless. Beautiful memorial card, as well.

(((Big HUGS))) Like all pet owners I know how you feel. It's never easy (I just lost my 13 year old cat, Maggie and find myself still looking for her in her favortie spots.) But it's really not fair when they are only 1 year old. You've made a nice memorial, frame it and put it in a special place!
