This is an Urn I did for a buddy who served in Iraq. His dog served with him and he was able to adopt when he separated a few years later. Unfortunately the dog passed this past February. This is what I came up with to commemorate him. Comments are welcomed.

Very nice workmanship and a wonderful gesture. As an Iraq vet myself, thanks for taking care of a fellow veteran. Just wonderful!

Very fitting….

Our canine friends loyally serve and befriend us with unconditional love.

We owe it to them to take care of them and it’s fitting to honor their memory….. and it makes us better people for having done so.

PS… how’d you secure the photo? I’ve found that Modge Podge works pretty well.

The photo was actually screen printed on a piece of metal then double sided tape to hold in place.
