This morning, I received the sad news that my brother and sister-in-law's beloved dog had passed away. I just cried when I saw the email from my SIL. They love their two dogs like children and it broke my heart knowing how devastated they must be.
This afternoon and well into the evening I combed the internet looking for something to send them to show my sympathy. I already know they plan to have Memphis cremated this week. I thought perhaps an urn or a memorial plaque. I'm not sure if they plan to keep or scatter her ashes somewhere. At any rate, every thing I found just seemed cheezy, too cutsie or just plain weird...until I found these.
The idea of having a small amount of a beloved pet's ashes infused into a beautiful hand-made glass pendant to wear close to the heart (or they have a style with a stand for display)...I just thought it was a really cool idea.
Then I asked my husband's opinion. He thought it was creepy. [insert eye roll] In his defense, he has never had a close bond with any pet. He didn't grow up with animals in his home, the way my brother and I did. We always had a dog or two and various other small animals. I have always formed a very close bond with my pets. It still hurts my heart when I think about my beautiful Sheba being gone. I know my brother (and his wife too) feel the same way.
So what do you think of the pendant idea? Cool or creepy?
