New Puppy

Today I've got a layout of my oldest and his dog Chico.  When he was about 21, he started living on his own and my DH was worried about him being all by himself so he surprised him with a new puppy.

My journaling is all about how Chico came into the family.  He was my son's faithful companion until a few months ago.  Chico passed away suddenly and my son was devastated.  So now this page serves in loving memory of my son's guardian.

R.I.P Sweet Boy 2007 - 2012
Thank you for watching over our son.


  1. what a cute page and oh i am so sorry for his loss. lossing a pet is so hard!

  2. Awww so cute! Its so hard losing a pet. I'm so sorry! Your pages are wonderful.

  3. Oh Norma!! I started with tears of joy, and ended with tears of sadness. I'm so sorry about Chico. He was a very handsome boy!!! I can tell you, it is DEVISTATING to lose a pup suddenly. My boxer was only 8.5 and seemed to be in really good shape when he dropped over and died in my arms a couple of years ago. I still think about it all the time. When our pups are laying too still, or don't come when I call them the first time, my stomach drops. It's a horrible feeling. We did get another boxer within a few days, and his silliness and being playful helped tremendously with the hurt and pain, but he is not a replacement (more of a distraction). My heart breaks for your son, and your family. ((hugs))

    1. I missed telling you that your pages are very cute! :) I love how you did the ribbon with the eyelet on the tags. :)
