Doggy Sympathy

Good Morning!  Thanks for coming to take a look today.  Sadly, it's not a happy card today.  One of my co-volunteers at the CT Humane Society suddenly lost her dog last week.  Tyson was at our shelter for a while after coming in as a neglect case (along with his sister, Hanna, who Cindy adopted).  Tyson was probably 30lbs and should of been 65-70 lbs.  But, with great care, he filled out and was adopted by our husband-wife volunteer team.

Tyson had some separation issues and ended up doing quite a bit of damage to their home, but they stuck by him through good and bad times. Unbeknownst to them, Tyson had cancer and it all came to a head last week and they had to put him to sleep.  We all loved Tyson and feel their pain.


I used my Skipping Stones sentiment and pawprints along with American Crafts paper and a PTI bloom die. (sorry - I had to take picture with my iPhone).

Here are a few of my favorite shots of Tyson from the shelter:

Here's Taz and Tyson after a fun run-a-round.  Can you say exhausted??

RIP Sweet Boy!

Thanks for your visit!

So sad to lose their puppy, but glad that he had a happy, loving family at the end. Love your card, that is my favorite flower die, but I just don't use it enough, thanks for the inspiration. This is a lovely card and your friend will love it.

Oh no! So sad that your friends lost their sweet Tysen! :( I'm so glad they were able to give him a loving home after his tough start in life though. Poor baby! Your card is beautiful and I know it will offer them comfort. The two tiny paw prints are such a sweet touch.
