Losing a pet is difficult and it certainly takes time to deal with the loss of a loyal friend and companion. If you have lost a dog or know someone who has, this Personalized Dog Memorial was created to comfort a grieving dog owner.
This endearing poem captures some of the wonderful memories shared by the owner and his or her "pooch." The verse is presented in a whimsical dog design and can be personalized with names, optional dates, and an optional closing message. The cut-out photo area adds an extra special touch to this dog sympathy gift. When you add a photo of the deceased dog or the dog with the owner, you've created a lasting keepsake.

Dog Poem reads...
A wagging tail, adoring eyes, barking at the door,
playful tugging, frequent naps,
toys strewn across the floor.
With little snorts and playful barks
you made your presence known
and, knowing you were always there,
we never felt alone.
You loved it when we scratched your ears,
we swear it made you smile.
We could never stay angry with you,
we couldn't if we tried.
The barking at the door has ceased,
no wagging tail to greet us,
just memories of a special friend
and good times are all we see.
Although we miss you dearly,
we'll try not to feel so blue,
because we know that there's a heaven
for special dogs like you.

Your Poetry Gift can be designed with or without a cut-out opening for a photo next to the poem. A second sheet underneath the poem and photo cut-out is a heavy stock paper with the words "Place Photo Here."
There is no need to send us a photo. You or the gift recipient can easily add a photo after the Poetry Gift arrives. The photo is positioned in back of the opening and then taped on the paper. You have the option of attaching a photo before you give the person the gift or the person receiving the gift can easily insert the photo.
The photo opening is approximately 2-1/4" x 3-1/4". This size opening is perfect for a large wallet size photograph, but you can also display the most important part of a larger photo. If you do not want a photo area in your Poetry Gift, choose the No Photo Area option when placing your order.
When you plan to send the Poetry Gift directly to someone and you have a photo you would like displayed in the photo area, we can insert your photo if you e-mail a photo attachment to us at firstname.lastname@example.org after you place your order. Please let us know that you are emailing us your photo when you place your order by typing that information in the "Comment" section of the order form after you enter your email address.
