A Special Thank You Card

A few weeks ago, I had no choice but to euthanize my 14 1/2 yr. old Pomeranian, Rusty.  Rusty was brought into our family when he was just five weeks old and I miss him terribly.  My other two Poms, Jessie & Tucker are still looking for him and cuddle each other a little closer than they used to.  We are fortunate to have a wonderful veterinary clinic who made a memorial donation to a Veterinary College Pet Trust on Rusty's behalf and I felt that this deserved a very special thank you card.  I called on Tilda with Puppy to help me out with this one and I think that between the two of us, we conveyed our heartfelt thanks very well.  I've taken many photos of my little furbabies over the years - this is the very last photo of all three together and I will cherish it forever.

Oh, that's so sad about Rusty! But what a loving and gentle end you gave him! I know your hurt. The card is delightful, and using Tilda with a puppy was an excellent choice. I love the little charm at the bottom of your letter with his picture and little dog bone. A treasured rememberence!

I'm so very sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved furbaby 'Rusty'. We lost our beautiful golden retriever "Chloe" about a year ago so I know the pain you're feeling. So nice of you to make a sweet card for your vet & so nice of them to make the donation on Rusty's behalf.

Your thank you card for your vet is so beautiful. I'm so sorry that you lost your furbaby. We've lost 3 of ours in the last few years - 2 of them within a year. Very sad and very hard.

Awwww, so sorry for your loss. Losing a dog is just as disheartening as a family member. Gosh I just wanted to cry when you wrote about Jessie and Tucker keep looking for the other one.
Crafting is always great therapy. I'm sure that Rusty is watching over you and is resting comfortably in doddie heaven.
Blessings to you~
