This was a special project, thinking about all the good times we had with our boxer Lola! Lola died from suddenly and unexpectedly from liver failure of unknown cause. We miss her greatly. Made urn from walnut, yellow heart, red heart. Her ashes and notes from our son enclosed on the outside. Brass plaque and plexiglass to secure picture of her. Her dog tag mounted on the bottom of the urn. Thanks for looking!

Sorry for the photos positioning.

I love this, especially the plexiglass for the photo. And nice choice of woods. You could also make a shadow box containing her collar, tags, maybe her favorite toy and photos. I do that for each dog we’ve had pass away. Special things for our 4-legged children. Very nice work!!!

Sorry for your loss, far too soon but it always is with our furry families. It’s a lovely piece and all the more special for the tears I’m certain fell on it while making it. We will see them again, believe it.

Have your say...
