Tribute to Man's best Friend

~~~  there's one more ANGEL in Heaven  ~~~

Last month we had to make the very difficult and sad decision to send a beloved member of our fur family over the Rainbow bridge...Balkie has been a part of our family for 15 years and has brought us so much joy, laughter, fun and fond memories. He was a small pavement special...his mother was a dog, as was his father...LOL! He must have had some Jack Russell and Maltese genes in his DNA...His personality was surely to big for his size! About two years ago we found out that his one heart chamber was enlarged and although he was on medication, old age, senility, and deafness just seemed to creep up on him. In the end we used to think of him as two dogs...the younger, healthy on the go chappy and then the old one who just ate, slept, ate and slept again...In the end , he had what I suspect to be a stroke, and  we made the long teary visit to the vet. This then is for you Balkie...from all of us, a very hearty thank you for all you gave to us, opening presents will never be the same, for you are not there any more to eagerly help tearing of the papers in anticipation of what is inside...

The Angel Wings from Dusty Attic were layered, painted, dry painted and dusted with fairie glitter.

The frame on the photo was achieved by embossing the photo in an embossing folder.

The Grass Cluster and Sweet Pea Frame are also from Dusty Attic.

Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I'll miss you
Until we meet again!
