I have an awesome son that lives in Chilliwack, BC. He works as a Paramedic in the oil fields. His main love is his family and his dog – Greta.
Greta is a wonderful Lab that is getting old. I can relate to that. Like most of us old people she is having some problems at 10 years old. You do the math.
My son wanted an urn for Greta. I have tried to convert his wishes in to wood.
The wood is hickory with a sprayed lacquer finish. The picture frame has a slit in the bottom for inserting a picture. The tube in front of the urn is for a lock of Greta’s hair.
I believe that most of us LJ’s are dog lovers and can relate to this.
“Not the least hard thing to bear when
they go from us, these quiet friends,
is that they carry away with them so
many years of our lives. Yet, if they
find warmth therein, who would
begrudge them those years that they
have so guarded?
And whatever they take,
be sure they have deserved.”
