We lost our dear dog, Charlie, two days ago in a tragic accident. He was actually Alyssa's dog, but we all dearly loved him. Aside from a few bad habits, he was the perfect family dog! I'm really having a hard enough time dealing with the reality that he's gone and I know Alyssa feels the same. It has been a long, long time since I've cried that long and that hard!
Here's the sweet stone that Alyssa painted for him.
We also planted flowers and a Hosta at his grave site.
Alyssa and I made a trip to Michael's craft store and bought this shadow box to display the paw print and hair tuft that the vet gave to Alyssa. I think she did such a beautiful job making it; it's now hanging in her room.
He was one loved dog.
