So I'm not the join a contest type, but this seems like one I wouldn't mind winning.

I was directed to a blog post by Blond Blogger on her Review Site telling of a contest sponsored by Ashes to Ashes.
Ashes to Ashes is a company that specializes in helping people deal with their pets death. Seeing as this is a subject near and dear to my heart and brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it, I went to check it out.
For the back history we lost two dogs this year, Taco and Buddy. One we had to make the hard choice to end his suffering and one died unexpectedly of a heart attack. I wish I had known of this site when my "first born" furkid Corky had passed several years ago. I miss my dogs every single day. I'm one of those horribly sentimental attached people like that. I think that's why people who just don't care about their animals, or see them only as a business without regard to their care or happiness, irritate me so much.
I went and looked at what Ashes to Ashes had to offer. I do have two dogs sitting on my desk to take care of visually. I've been looking at Urns and haven't found anything that tickled my fancy. Or course I've been avoiding the whole issue a little bit too. They make a line of jewelry so you can keep your pet close to your heart. I think this might be good for G. He took losing Buddy really hard. Harder than my G-pa dying really, which was only 2 weeks apart. G-pa we knew about.... long process with a definite end. Buddy was sudden and a huge cut to the soul.
I think even if we don't win the contest we will go cruise the site and see if something tickles G. There are styles suitable for men in the jewelry. Urns in every style and shape, pet loss gifts, grief gifts, jewelry, keepsakes, key chains, everything a pet owner will need in a time of loss.
Thanks Blond Blogger for sending me that direction.

Aww, Fog, now I'm crying. I am so sorry for the loss of your doggies. :( It is one of the hardest things to go through and unless someone has been through it, and has that soul connection with their pet, they can't truly understand what it's like.

My heart goes out to you and your family. I hope you find peace and comfort. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
