“Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.” ― Agnes Sligh Turnbull
That famous quote–and one that applies equally to cats and all other pets who share our hearts–rings true no matter how long our pets are in our lives. We’ve learned that truth all too well the past few years with the loss of 15-year-old Felix and Linus, 9-year-old Coco, 16-month-old Ochi, and, most recently, 10-year-old Irie.
When I first started thinking about carrying pet memorial jewelry in our PawZaar gift store, I wasn’t sure if I personally would like to wear one of the necklaces in the line. I loved the idea of a special piece of jewelry that honored a beloved member of the family–but I wasn’t certain if I wanted to add ashes to the small compartment hidden within the jewelry.
But then I came upon the idea of adding, not a pinch of cremation ashes, but pet fur to the piece:
The necklaces each come with a small funnel and an implement, like a non-sharp needle, that pushes the fur (or ashes) into the funnel. I used the implement to just directly put the fur into the necklace.
I have to say that I love wearing my memorial necklace now. We had some of Irie’s fur that I wasn’t sure what to do with but this necklace has been a special way to carry her close to my heart. If you don’t want to add fur or ashes to your necklace, the small compartment (just at the top of the heavy stainless steel pendant) could be used to hold some grains of sand from a favorite dog vacation, catnip from your cat’s favorite toy, or soil from a favorite dog walking trail. The back of each of the memorial necklaces is plain with a mirror finish, perfect for having a local jeweler engrave your pet’s name.
