Happy saturday!

I finished the Rainbow Bridge this morning and adding the names was tough, especially Katie and Bubba who were very special.
Here is a close up of the names and when E.J. time comes his will be added as well but I hope it is many years!
In between pages on the wolf I will be doing this piece from my friend Sandy at Joyful expressions.
Bubba Joe 1996-2004
Bubba loved everyone including animals unless you were a squirrel or bird!  He even came to the assisted living where I worked to visit.
Mr. Max 1992-2006
Mr. Max was adopted when he was 13 and Jack called him the curmudgeon.  He was difficult to live with but we loved him.  He died 8 months after we adopted him.
Big Mac 1982-1991
A little furball of a chow who grew to 80 pounds.  He was so sweet and adored children especially the 3 year old boy across the street.
Katie-Bug ?-2010
And our beloved Katie.  My heart still aches for her.  She came to live with us in 2006 and was always such a good girl and so loving.  I still say whether she was 8 or 9 years old, it was too soon for her to leave us.
   Thanks for visitng me.  God bless and keep you and huggles to you and yours.

This makes me so sad, and yet it's such a neat neat way to remember them. Like my son says, "You know when you get a pet, that day is gonna come," but we still do it and wouldn't trade it for anything. I hope you have a good rest of the weekend ~ and the cross-stitch looks beautiful!! ♥♥

Congrats on the finish, Michelle. It's beautiful. Hopefully a new name won't be added to it for a long time to come.

What a beautiful memorial to your beloved little doggies. As I viewed their pictures I could see the love reflected in their eye's.

All the names of our fur babies that have gone on ahead of us would not fit on a single cloth and so there is a file with birth dates and deceased dates that we keep. Tis a sweet memory you have created. Should I have the opportunity I shall create one too.

What a nice way to remember your pets. They can sure be a joy and they can sure leave an empty spot.
