All Pets Go to Heaven | Blogs |

After visiting several sites about pet grieving, I stumbled across the blog below on All Pets Go to Heaven. I realized that history shows that many times our pets grieve for us just as deeply.

Below is a memorial I did for a heartbroken lady of her beautiful Shetland Sheepdog, Candy. She wanted a memorial stone made for Candy's grave and asked if I could come up with something on stone that looked hand drawn. This is what I came up with. It's a slab of marble that I used a Dremel tool with a special bit for stone etching. She cried when she saw it. It was a bitter sweet moment for me.

This was the epitaph she chose for the stone. 
"A heart of gold stopped beating,
Two shining eyes at rest.
God broke my heart to prove,
He only takes the best." Author Unknown
