Our eldest dog Lucy had to be put down due to compications from diabetes. I made this box for her the next day so we could bring here home and bury her in the back garden.

My wife does pyrography so she did the design on the lid.

So sorry for your loss. You built a great final resting place for her.

My time is coming with my 19 year old JRT. But I can’t bring myself to build a coffin for her while she’s still alive and well.

Well done. I know how it is to bury loved ones. This is a nice way to honor your friend’s passing. The real joy is in the memory of her company, and those sweet eyes looking up at you with unwavering love.
