A tribute to my darling boy, Joey.



Celebrate card

Today's post is a tribute to my darling boy, Joey. My 14 year old Shih Tzu died last night. :(  In his heyday, he was a bird-chasing dog with a penchant for apples and low tolerance for people who took too long to serve him his meals. He barked whenever I asked "Who's my darling boy?" and he worked hard for a piece of doggy chocolate. While I'm torn over his passing,  instead of mourning, I'm going to celebrate the wonderful memories he left me. Miss you my darling boy.

Supplies: (from Your Scrapbook Stash) Crate Paper patterned papers, stickers, packaging, button, May Arts ribbon, wooden tag, burlap, twine, distress ink

Oh Yvonne you must be heart broken you had him for 14 years. When our dog passed away after 10 years of loving us we were devastated so right of you to celebrate his life.
