Remembering Byron

It's been almost three weeks since Byron's been gone.

We received a card of condolence from the animal hospital a couple days later. I had tucked it away without opening it because it was a sad reminder.

We had Byron cremated and I brought him home a week later.

I opened the card tonight and inside was a stamp of one of Byron's paws.

In the past, Gord and I had talked about getting tattoos of paw prints to remember the furkids we've had and will have.

This is definitely a sign that we should ... and we will.

That's an incredibly sweet thoughtful thing to do. Wow. My kitty's wee ash urn sits on a windowsill to this day, as it was his favorite place to chill out.

I love the paw print card idea. I wish I had the same when my dog passed away when I was in high school.

That was thoughtful of the animal hospital to do that. I'm sure the waterworks began when you saw the paw print.
