Doc was a good dog...

Sadly, my daughter's family had to say good-bye to and old friend a few days ago. Doc the Beagle. He was 14 years old and had many adventures in his resume.
He could open the refrigerator door with a bit of persistence and clean out several shelves in one afternoon. Of course it was easy to follow him around the house after one such event, if you get my drift! Whew!
He could eat a whole roll of deer sausage off the counter, or a turkey on the table. Talent and the ability to plan!!!
He loved to chase birds...hence we have the little Tim bird looking at the box with his name on it. The kids wanted something to put his collar and dog tags in as a memento, so I used this wooden box that I painted a copper metallic and used the Slate metal.
So, here's to you Doc. Chase the birds and enjoy your naps in the sunshine......

oh dear - always so sad to loose a furry friend - the memento box is a lovely idea and it's a great box - brilliant metalwork - and for Tim bird to watch over it too is just so thoughtful. RIP Doc.

I agree ... they are family and leave a hole in your heart. The box is a wonderful idea. My great dane could also open the fridge. She once at a whole sheet cake on the counter. She too is now with her furry friends romping and eating I'm sure. Peace.

Awww, there are not many things in life tougher than parting with a pet. The box is lovely though, such sweet classy sentiment.

On a happier note, there's a little surprise waiting for you at my blog. Enjoy!
