Wooden Dog Photo Memorial Custom Text Keepsake Box
fleece blanket made with a paw print pattern and his photo along with a few words to act as a keepsake that I can seek comfort from.
Being a tactile item I can look at it and wrap myself in it when remembering how Fred and I would 'spoon' on the sofa. He was such a lovely big old boy, I'd lie behind him and together the two of us stretched out full length would just about fit.
I have also kept a lock of his fur which I may sew into the corner of the blanket.
I don't think it's morbid to remember ones family dogs this way, we must each do what we feel is neccessary to bring comfort. My surrounding myself with more pets is a wonderful distraction but not a replacement for my dear Fred. We can no more replace family pets than we can people.
With this is mind I have been busy today designing simple yet sympathetic dog memorial keepsakes which include photo plaques, keepsake boxes, mugs and more.
