In this post, I'm sharing something I've been working on. It took me over a year to even begin working on it because I was just so sad. I finally finished a little tribute to my babies, Copper and Daisy.
Way back in 1999, I met Matt and he had with him two of the best dogs EVER. I was completely smitten with him and his puppies. For nine years, we were a little family. Then Daisy became very tired and retired to Boca. (Matt refuses to say that they were put to sleep or they died. So we compromised and say that they retired to Boca.) The next year, Copper joined her. We were just completely heartbroken. How could you not love faces like these?
I have this ready to go in a shadowbox. I added squirrel, tree and flower stickers because the backyard was Daisy's favorite place. Copper loved being outside only when it was sunny and warm. Then, he'd lay on his back and sun his belly. I put Daisy's old ID tag in there and I will eventually put her collar in there. As for Copper's...Matt got rid of his collar and keeps his ID tag on his key chain.
It's all very cutesy but it fits both of their personalities. They were sweet, sunny and loving dogs. I still miss them so much...
