Merci pour Phoebe

We are back from Holidays (late last night). So this morning, we had to go pick up Phoebe’s ashes from the vet. She was very special to us, so she deserves to be remembered in a little corner of her backyard. This is very hard, even more because we came back from holidays to an empty house. Jim and I (and the kids) miss her so much… we think that we hear or see her all the time. It’s very hard to realize she is no longer with us. The most difficult part is coming home and opening the door and to realize that there will be no “greeting”. No matter what, she always got up and came to the door to greet us and then she let other people know that you were home! Talk about feeling special! Well I miss my special greeting so much!!! Anyway, if you come to my blog it is to see cards, not too hear me cry about my Phoebe.

I did a card to bring to the vet today to say Thank you for all the special attention that Dr. Blain gave to my Phoebe. She always took the time to listen to my concern and she always had so many nice compliments for my Phoebe. They really liked her at the clinic. The whole staff has been extremely nice over Phoebe’s 13 years. We also found out that Dr. Blain lost her own dog on the same day Phoebe died, August 3rd. Her little one was only 5 years old, but quite sick. It still hurts a lot and poor Dr. Blain was there giving us sympathies when she was suffering herself…
So here is the card I made. I think that the stamped image looks a little like my Phoebe. I colored it my Copics in Phoebe’s colors. I also put a photo of Phoebe inside the card.
