There is no easy way to deal with losing a furry love. Our lives take on new meaning when we are enveloped by their ever constant love, companionship, and soulfulness. We consider ourselves the lucky ones, though, as we have clearly discovered the secret. A secret that is only shared by those who have been nurtured by a kindred soul's simple teachings of goodness and compassion.

As our animal companions are forever dependent on our care, they assume those roles typically assigned to children. And, there is no greater despair than to endure the loss of a child. Research indicates that after experiencing the death of a child, it may take three to five years for one to move on or begin to live their life again. We believe the same holds true for our furry children.

The amount of pain we experience when a loved furchild dies is also a function of the level of the relationship. If you were the person responsible for your dog's needs, the one that your sweetheart cherished most, the one who was always there, then you will need more time to deal with this loss. All of that time that went into building this unique bond with your dog needs to be worked through. It can happen, but it takes time. The grieving process is an important one, despite society's demanding pace to move on. Below, are some items to more positively acknowledge this loss, for a cherished friend or relative . . . or, for yourself.

Michael Park Woodcarver Memorial Urns
In 1987 Master Woodcarver, Michael Park, opened his own studio in Pennsylvania—instilling his love of dogs in all of his work. And, there, he carves among the company of his four dogs and a team of craftspeople to create beautiful renditions of countless breeds.

Each piece from Michael Park's studio line is hand-crafted one at a time from original woodcarvings. With painstaking care and detail, the finished products have a charm all their own. Hand painted and finished, they truly are as special as the dogs they are celebrating.



 
 

These urns feature a hard-wood rectangular box with a routed edge. They are spacious enough to hold large dog ashes.

Available in Light or Dark Oak, mounting tape and a blank 1 ˝" x 4" brass plate is also included for you to have engraving completed once your urn is received. (Engraving not included). 

The dog head is resin cast from an original hand-carved piece, and is then individually hand painted. The dimensions of this lovely box is: 4 1/2" x 6 3/8" x 10 1/2".

With 59 breed offerings, we are hoping that many folks will be able to honor their beloved companions. Price: $104.00. Please allow 3 weeks for delivery.
