Pampering Your Pooch

Aug 31, 2011

photo“Yes!” your pup barks excitedly as you enter the door. In your hand is a new fluffy toy with a little jingle bell inside. Pampering your pup can make you as happy as they are. That expression of happiness that falls upon their whole body just puts a smile on your face. As pet owners, treating and pampering our loveable canine companion is something we indeed love to do, and our pup’s love to have done.

Take your pup to the pet store

What do you do when you are wanting to treat yourself? Some people enjoy shopping for a treat- and so does your pup. A trip to the local pet store is like taking a child to the toy store. All the interesting things (and the other pups too) offer your pup a little excitement. You can walk them around, and let them choose from some items they like. Here you can find a variety of pampering items for your pup- toys, a treat or even a luscious pillow that they can’t seem to let go of now.

Toys and treats

Nothing beats that expression of excitement when you show up at the door with a bag of treats that a pup can smell from a mile away. Treats and toys are some of the best pampering devices used by owners.

A stuffed animal (that may not last long) with a squeak inside is always great, and allows you to play a game and interact with your pup to further pamper them. Many pet stores even offer un-stuffed animals for those folks that have a pet that just loves to shred their toys.

Chew toys are great for younger pups whom are teething, and can keep them settled and their teeth off your hands. If squeaking is a little bothersome to you, consider one with a jingle bell inside. Balls that have these can keep a pup rolling around and chasing it for hours.

Edible treats will indeed make your pup happy, but be careful what treats contain. Many of the newer treats have healthy ingredients, but not all are so. Make sure when you treat your pup, you treat them with a healthy snack.

Grooming

A trip to the groomers keeps your pup clean and smelling fresh, but can a pup enjoy being cleaned? All that attention is indeed nice, but finding a groomer that makes the visit something the pup is actually excited about may take some research. Try finding a place that does such things as paw-decures or may offer a pet massage for your beloved pup. Getting their paws massaged is great for your pup’s nervous system and the visit can leave them relaxed and happy.

A fluffy bed

Have you ever walked into your house and discovered your pup laying on your bed rather than their own? That’s because its soft and well…it smells like you. Pampering your pup with a luscious bed or sleeping area is one of the best ways to treat them- throughout their life. Nothing beats sleeping on a nice comfy cushion surrounded by a blanket and toys. Having  a place that they feel comfortable in that is their private place they can always return too keeps them happy and secure.

Remember that pampering your dog is a lifelong activity. Nothing tells them you love them more than continually showing them what they mean to you by spending special time together.

Your Dog’s Healthy Heart

Aug 29, 2011

photoHumans are renowned for exercising and eating healthy to maintain a healthy heart and body. But what about your pup? Have you ever stopped to consider your own pup’s heart (the physical one, not the big one she loves you with). Your pup’s heart can be affected by their own set of heart conditions, often going unnoticed because, well they can’t always tell us there is a problem. It is important to get regular checkups with your vet and ensure that your pup’s heart is taken care of.

Congenital heart disease

Though most heart problems develop over time, there are conditions in which your dog suffers from genetic problems that affect their heart. Pre-existing heart problems like these are commonly diagnosed very early in a pup’s life. This is why it is important to always take your pet in for regular checkups. These problems often need to be maintained medically, so you will need to discuss the problem with your vet for proper care.

Acquired heart disease

Heart problems are most commonly developed over time. As your pup grows and ages, heart problems can begin to surface. Some problems are developed from normal wear and tear over time, and some can come from an injury or infection that your dog suffers from.

Affects my pup how?

Often problems will arise when there are changes to your pup’s heart valves- preventing them from closing properly. This affects how your pup’s circulatory system works, and can cause more problems further down the line if the problem isn’t remedied. Other problems may arise from your pup’s heart muscle weakening, also affecting their ability to pump blood throughout their body. Heart problems often lead to irregular heart rhythm, fluid buildup within the heart, and reduced circulation. These problems often force their heart to work harder to compensate.

What to do about your pup’s heart

There are a variety of treatment options for your pup. Aside from surgery (hopefully not) your pup’s diet and exercise plan come into effect here. As your pup’s owner, it is up to you to ensure that your pup consumes a healthy diet and gets plenty of exercise (no couch potatoes).

Diet

It is important that your pup gets the minerals and vitamins that they need for a healthy body. Choosing the right dog food for your pup will take some research on your part, and ask your veterinarian about specific things to look for when choosing a dog food brand. As sodium (salt) often leads to water retention which can put excessive pressure on their heart, it is often recommended to stay away from high sodium diets. There are many additives and minerals that help strengthen your pup’s heart such as the classic Omega 3. This is an excellent addition to your pup’s diet and helps lower bad cholesterol and increase the good. There are many other natural substances that affect your pup’s heart positively (hawthorn berries and valerian) but always ask your vet before administering any doses to ensure that your pup doesn’t have a reaction to them.

Exercise

Keeping your dog active is important in not only keeping them happy, but also keeping them healthy. If your pup’s problem is diagnosed to be severe, you may wait for this until the problem is under better control as you may only damage their heart worse.

A good diet and quality exercise are not just important for a pup with heart disease, they are important in preventing problems as well. Remember to take your pup in for a checkup on a regular basis to ensure their health.

Keep your pup happy with a healthy diet and active lifestyle so that they can live many long years with you!

Caution in Leaving Money to Your Pooch

Aug 26, 2011

photoIt is always important to ensure that your legal will is situated in case something might happen to you. You are deciding how to divide your effects amongst your loved ones. Your family will likely be included, but what about your pooch? Your faithful canine companion is one of your closest friends and you want to ensure that they are taken care of. While humans of course have many rights of their own and are protected by laws, your pup may actually have trouble getting the care and effects that you leave them in your last testament.

Money and property

In 1923, American laws were adapted to allow owners to leave inheritances to their pets (not just pups). Although it is allowed, that does not mean that leaving money and property to your pooch will not meet with difficulties. There are still many loopholes in the system, and more often than not, the presiding judges still can decide what to do with your effects. There are trusts that the money can be left in, but the trustees will still likely have control of the funds. If you are debating to include your pup in your will, especially financially, remember that you will need to set up your own trust with specifics to avoid trouble and ensure your pup gets the care they deserve.

Although trusts can be created to offer financial protection not only your dog, but possibly pups in future generations, these are often difficult to arrange, and sometimes just as hard to ensure they are carried out properly.

Care and careful

Even if you request care for your pup through financial means and legal assistance, there are still difficulties in ensuring that this is accomplished. One problem with the legalities of a person’s death is that their family members often have rights before anything else. The legal system sees your blood relatives and adopted family as your closest life companions. This does not hold true, as people often find “family members” through close bonds with their friends and pets.

This is unfortunate for your faithful pup as they cannot actually fight for what may be rightfully theirs. Until laws are adapted to better protect the last wishes of the deceased, there will always be difficulties with carrying out a will.

To be buried with you?

What about something as simple as requesting your beloved dog be buried with you when they pass on as well? This is the most difficult task to accomplish as cemeteries in the United States do not allow pets to be buried where humans are buried. There is not much you can do about such laws.

If you are considering arranging for your pup to be taken care of- financially or physically- you may reconsider your arrangements. Pets are often regarded as property themselves (we may not think of them that way, but the legal system does) and actually leaving an inheritance to them via the current legal system may be difficult. Perhaps you should consider looking into available trusts, and organizing with a close friend or relative regarding your pup’s safety if you pass on.

Good Strategies for Dog to Dog Aggression

Aug 24, 2011

photoYou take young Rover to the dog park  for the first time to let them interact with other dogs. Unfortunately for you, Rover doesn’t seem to enjoy being around some of the other dogs- and on top of that, he takes a few snaps at some of them. Not everyone in this world gets along- and the same thing goes for dogs as well. Aggressive reactions to dogs and other animals can be a big turnoff when you want to go out and play at a park or with fellow pup owners.

History

Owners may not even be aware of aggressive conditions especially if your pup has been rescued from a shelter. There are various levels of aggression that a pup can experience; snapping, growling or right out attacking and going for the jugular. This can be a difficult situation to cope with as your pup is embedded with the need to protect themselves before they are even attacked. Allowing your pup to play with unknown dogs that may also have aggressive qualities can be dangerous. A pup suffering from attacks and beatings can be traumatized- often resulting in their own aggressive tendencies.

Leader of the pack

As your pup’s owner- you need to understand that you are part of their pack (or they are part of yours, whichever you prefer). You play the part of mentor, leader and parent for them. You teach and protect your pup from the dangers of the world. Letting your pup fight for themselves in order to toughen them up can have repercussive effects and simply result in developing aggression- and often will make it less likely that they will pay attention to you.

When you go to dog parks or you introduce your pup to others, make sure that you intervene in any fight or signs of aggression. You will want to teach your pup that you are their protector and master to help prevent them from developing aggression to others. You may feel that this makes your pup weak as it seems that your pup can’t protect themselves, but by nature a dog knows when there is true danger and will protect you when it is necessary.

Another dog?

What about other dogs? You never ever trust your pup with a strange dog when they are alone. Aside from worms and ticks, another dog can have aggressive tendencies. Leaving your pup to play solo at a park with other pups can be extremely dangerous. In larger numbers, dogs regain their pack instincts and will attack- especially a newcomer to the group. This is known as “rank-drive” and is natural instinct for dogs. Sometimes it occurs without a fight, but it often results in aggression. Either way you don’t want to chance your pup to strangers. They may seem playful at first, but it only takes a second for another dog to attack- and injure your pup.

Obedience is the key to keeping your pup’s aggressive tendencies docile. You need to establish yourself as the pack leader for your pup. Create a situation in which your pup looks to you for guidance through proper training. If your pup’s problems are extreme, you may need to consider an actual obedience school for them. But as long as you teach your pup from the get-go that you are number one, they will respond well to you, and hopefully stay out of trouble on the playground.

The Voice of Body Language and Your Dog

Aug 22, 2011

photo“Speak!” you say to your pup. “Arf!” your pup says in return. Though it is a nice trick, you and your pup are separated by the all-powerful “speech” barrier. You cannot understand what they bark, and they don’t really understand human speech. So what does your pup react to? The answer is quite simple- body language. It is universal throughout the world amongst any country. Communicating by using gestures and body movements provides us with ways to break the speech barrier.

The way you move

Have you ever noticed that an unfamiliar pup will cower when approached? Perhaps it is because of the way you move as you go through the motions. In a dog’s body language, standing above another pup can often be a sign of suppression. Though this is not what you mean, it is how your pup interprets it. Try instead to approach your pup at an eye level. You may look a little funny in public, but sitting and crouching down on their level is a great way to start a conversation with a pup.

Something you may keep in mind is that eye contact is not to be taken lightly. In a pup’s world, eye contact is commonly an aggressive sign and may insinuate fear or aggression in your pup over time.

Open arms and hands are symbolic throughout the world- and your pup’s as well. This stance tells your pup that they are allowed in your comfort zone. Direction can also affect a pup’s neutrality. From the front or back can show signs of aggression as they may believe that you are preparing for an attack. Their sides are the most neutral direction to approach from as they can see you clearly.

The sound of a voice

It is not just the words you speak to your pup, but how you say them. When you are angry, your voice shows it. When you are happy or neutral, the sound of your voice will reflect your emotions. When you talk to your pup, try to do it in a calm and cool way- like the Fonz. During training, do not let your voice reflect anger or frustration- but sternness. Letting you pup know that you are in charge is different from punishing them verbally. Your voice is a key element in communicating with your pup. Even though the words may be simple gibberish to them, the sound and familiarity are enforced by the way you express them as you speak.

Your pup’s body language

The way your pup moves is just as important as the way you move. As an owner, you need to recognize such things as circling, trepidation, and aggression. These signs are somewhat unique to each pup, but you will soon learn by communicating with your pup.
Circling, scratching and sniffing are telltale signs of potty time- or interest. If your pup is afraid, commonly they will look away and their tail (unless your pup has a nub) will drop between their legs. Sometimes, if pressured enough, a pup will begin to show aggression. Growling, barking and snapping are only the physical outcome. Before they attack, a pup will often curl their lips up, and lay their ears flat. This would definitely be your cue to step in or step away. With enough contact with your pup, you will get to know them on a more intimate level and they will display even more characteristics.

Arthritis and Your Dog

Aug 19, 2011

photoYou were used to the days when your pup romped about and jumped on almost anything that moved. But time catches up to us all. As a pup ages, they experience many of the difficulties that we humans also have as we get older. Arthritis can definitely put a damper on your pup’s extreme lifestyle- but it shouldn’t mean that your pup has to suffer. As your pup’s owner, you can take measures to ensure that your pup still enjoys life as much as you do.

Why my pup?

Much like humans, pups begin to feel the symptoms of arthritis in their senior years. There are many things that can cause it- from simple genetics to the lack of minerals in their diet or even excess weight that wears their joints down. Ensuring that your pup has a healthy diet can play a key role in helping your pup cope with arthritis.

What it does

The severity of this disease is variable, but worsens over time. You may notice your pup beginning to sit differently, or shifting their weight onto another leg. Unfortunately, pups don’t communicate like we do, so it is often difficult to tell when they begin to feel pain and stiffness. If the aches are severe, you may notice it right away as pups will likely not want to move around or play at all.

As your pup becomes older, you should get them checked regularly for arthritis, and pay attention to small hints such as discomfort or weight shifting. Catching the disease early will help you prevent them from enduring more discomfort.

What can you do

The good news is that there are things you can do to help them deal with the discomforts. Though there is no actual cure, you can still improve their quality of life.

Naturally easing your pup’s life is possibly the best way. Amongst some herbal remedies, there are many physical things you can do to help your pup deal with their condition. Massaging on a regular basis is a great experience for your pup. Chest rubs, legs, and especially paws can help alleviate the discomforts. These areas are targets for blood flow which helps keep their circulatory and nervous system working well. Incorporating some herbal oil into the mix will help soothe their pain- and they will enjoy the extra attention.

Exercise is still important. Though it may seem rough for them to endure- the movement such as simply walking around in the yard or park (preferably grassy areas to reduce joint impact) will help stimulate their joint fluids. Because arthritis inflames these areas, the fluid will help reduce the discomfort.

Increasing the ease of life- such as their regular needs- can help as well. The more comfortable you make your pup the more likely they will enjoy life. Soft cushions to rest on can help, along with making their food and water more available. But what about their other daily needs- like pooping and peeing. It is often quite discomforting when a pup has to get up and try to get outside to relieve themselves. Consider a Porch potty that offers the convenience of indoor plumbing for your pup. It’s something we take for granted, but consider how much it would ease your pup’s life- especially when arthritis can make even the smallest distance feel like a mile.

Arthritis is a terrible disease that can slow any pup down. But you don’t have to let it stop them from enjoying life. With a little care and a lot of love, you can ensure that your pup enjoys the quality of life they deserve.

Obsessed Dogs – Is There Such a Thing?

Aug 17, 2011

photoDoes it seem that sometimes your pup is stalking you? There seems to be no place you can go that your pup does not follow. In the bathroom- your pup lays at the door and waits. Trying to leave for work and your pup is at the door- trying to prevent you from leaving. These characteristics make it seem that your pup is perhaps a little obsessed with you. For many owners, this may seem like an annoyance, but the truth is it is because your pup loves you- a lot- and they are suffering from a bit of separation anxiety.

Obsession

These obsessions can be common in most pups- to some degree. A pup following you around the house and sitting in the same room with you is not unhealthy. They simply want to be around the person they love- it’s only natural. Problems may arise when you can’t leave because your pup is hounding you or won’t leave your side and you find it difficult to get through doors because they are right there with you. Sometimes pups may even tackle you when you first arrive home and won’t leave your side until you force them away. These characteristics can be annoying, but the truth is they are actually symptoms of something more.

Stress and anxiety?

If your pup is over-obsessed with you to these extremes, they are more than likely suffering from separation anxiety. It is not only hard for them to leave your side- their body and mind becomes stressed when you aren’t around. Their heart races and they begin to worry or get depressed. This will often be followed by lack of eating, overeating and most likely- destruction. Chewing and clawing at doors, or tearing up things that carry your scent (shoes, clothes, and remote controls) are often primary targets for a pup suffering from anxiety. This is not to spite you from leaving them or their own wrath manifested through destruction- it is them coping with the stress.

Fortunately, not all forms of obsession are this intense. Genuinely, a dog is man’s best friend and follows through the best they know how. Some pups are more friendly than others after all, personalities differ from person to person, so why not the same for dogs? Light obsessions such as a wagging tail when you arrive home, or them waiting for you and meeting you when you get home from work are not harmful in any way. Characteristics such as being excited to see you when you arrive home- but vanish after a few moments and greetings are not harmful in any way and are quite common.

Obsession- is it possible that pups are guilty of this? If your four legged companion is guilty of wanting to be with you then yes. There are extremes to obsession- situations that can be harmful for your pup to endure, but most are generally symptoms of a happy pup that loves you. These are the obsessions of a being that adores you and wants- quite simply- to make your life a happy experience.

What can I do? Is my Dog Obsessed?

If I take a bath/shower my dog will sit outside the door or if I happen to enter a room and close the door she will sit outside of it. Should I choose to step outside the front door, she will either lie quietly by the door or she will jump in the blinds and watch me or pace back and forth in front of the window until I come in. I simply can not go anywhere without her underfoot. I seriously think she is obsessed with me. My question is: Can dogs be obsessed with their owners?

Even though you find it worrisome, it warms my heart…she loves her mom. I have seen dogs sitting in front of a home, watching their favorite child walk to school, so the behavior itself isn’t unheard of. Does she eventually walk away and do other things, or is she still in the window when you return home? I would worry if she didn’t drink any water or chew her toys while you are away. We had a dog who’d whine when he saw us leave. He grew out of it as he became older, but some dogs never do. When their owner leaves, they don’t know for how long, and they worry that it may be too long. They want to be with the owner always. It is touching, yet on the other hand it can be bothersome. Have you talked to your vet? I would certainly ask a vet and see what they say. I think a lot of animals suffer from separation anxiety. I think it shows the depth of the love and loyalty an animal can and will have for their owners.

Home Alone?

Aug 15, 2011

photoWhat does your pup do when you go to work? Or the grocery store? You can’t take your pup everywhere you go so sometimes you have to leave them at home alone. Some pups have difficulty with this, others don’t have as much trouble. Leaving them alone for long periods can be somewhat uncomfortable for even the most well-trained of dogs. As an owner, you are just as responsible for their happiness- as they are for yours.

Stress and anxiety

Leaving your pup alone in your home is a necessary fact of life. It is not possible to take them with you everywhere you go, and it would prove expensive to leave them with a pup-sitter every time you have to go to work. Dogs, especially young pups whom are used to constant attention can become worried and begin to stress when you are not around them. The bond you two share affects them deeply and can lead to emotional anxiety. They can become depressed or even in some cases- aggressive.

Time away

Unfortunately for some pups, prolonged amounts of time alone can cause stress and anxiety attacks. Enduring long periods of time away from your pup will cause their worry to grow. The anxiety becomes centrifugal- much like a snowball rolling downhill consuming all in its path. It doesn’t take long periods of time for this to happen. Dogs can sometimes develop anxiety while you are still getting ready to leave. Anxiety like this is more difficult to manage because you will have to train your pup to endure the separation.

Separation anxiety symptoms

These problems often result in depressed or frustrated characteristics. They may refrain from eating properly when alone, or may consume a lot more food than usual. Chewing on and destroying items that have your scent are most common. This is not done out of spite, so please don’t punish them as it will only make the situation worse.

Anxiety relief

Training your pup to endure these separations will take time. For pups that seem to have trouble almost immediately when they discover that you are leaving, you can try a simple trick. Dogs respond well to noise- especially keys. Jingling keys most often are familiarized with- leaving. Try jingling your keys randomly and doing activities that you would normally do before you leave. Hanging around the garage door seems to be quite effective as well. But don’t leave when you do this. This procedure should be done randomly throughout the day- and soon your pup will begin to worry less and less that you are leaving.

Another helpful hint is to slowly adjust your pup to longer periods of time alone. Depending on the pup’s anxiety symptoms- start at half an hour, move to an hour and so on. Each time you leave, stay away a little longer and when you get back- give them a treat so that they will understand that this is good. This helps slowly adjust your pup to understanding you will always return and hopefully reduce their stress.

If you are gone for extreme periods of time- and your pup must stay alone at home unwatched- consider having a friend stop by and spend some time with them, or leave them with someone that can interact with them regularly. This will help break them of the monotonous alone time and can reduce anxiety.

For a pup, spending time alone can be stressful. They are creatures eager to please and want to be around the people they love- much like us humans you could say. But situations cannot be as easily explained to them. As your pup’s owner- you are responsible for their happiness and health so spending a little extra time with them to train them to cope with being alone is important to them.

Brushing Your Dog’s Teeth

Aug 12, 2011

photoOh! You just got a blast of puppy breath and it smelled bad. Brushing your pup’s teeth is just as important for them as it is for us (not just to protect our noses). Cleaning your pup’s mouth is important, but it is also important to get your pup used to this chore. You don’t want them to fear the brush- or it may become something that you cannot keep up regularly.

Pups don’t get cavities, but they can get plaque, tartar and gum diseases the same as we do- which of course cause bad breath. Though you can simply take your pup to a dentist to get their teeth cleaned, this is something you as an owner need to consistently keep up with to. Regular brushing is necessary to keep your pup smiling with their pearly whites.

Motivate your pup

This can be difficult to accomplish if your pup is skittish about you touching around their mouth. You will have to get them used to you doing this through the course of time. Get your pup used to you brushing by flipping their lips up and using a clean, wet towel to scrub your pup’s teeth and gums. While you do this, talk to your pup calmly to help generate a positive response. Try not to force your pup in a rough manner- if they get anxious, stop and repeat after a minute. When you are done, give them a treat to reinforce the situation as positive. This process should be done daily to help familiarize your pup with the actual brushing process.

Cleaning their teeth

There are special toothpastes for our canine companions as their bodies are quite different from ours (not just the four legs). You need to make sure that you never use human toothpaste on a pup as the high fluoride content is toxic to their body. Choosing a brush that is right for your pup is just as important to them as it is to you. Finger brushes seem to be the most effective at accomplishing the process because of the easy maneuverability it allows. You simply apply the puppy toothpaste to the brush, lift your pup’s lips and start brushing- gently though at first. Be careful not to let your pup bite or try to eat the toothbrush. Remove the brush or finger if that is the situation, and try again from the start. Scrub for as long as you can before they become anxious; and when done- offer your pup a treat (positive motivation, remember!). Each day you should try to lengthen the amount of time you brush until you can fully accomplish the procedure (pat yourself on the back – you are your pup’s dentist).

The brushing is very important for your pup. Even if your pup isn’t excited about the situation at first, remember that it is necessary for their health. Don’t worry if it takes time to get your pup used to the brushing, their mouth is a sensitive area and even people don’t like someone messing with their mouth. Spend time with your pup and make them comfortable with the procedure. With a happy, healthy smile- pups can bring a lot of happiness to your home.

Dogs Are A Girl’s Best Friend

Aug 10, 2011

photoWe love our pets, and always hate to see them leave us behind. Dogs are man’s best friend and offer us years of faithful companionship. But time eventually catches up to even the best of pups. But how will you want to remember them? Some folks bury them; some take them to the taxidermist. There are even options where for a price, they will professionally mummify your pup. Now technology has made it possible to remember your pup that was a gem in life- as a diamond in the afterlife.

Preparing

Once your pup has passed on, you will need to have their body cremated to produce the ashes needed. There are labs and facilities that can extract more carbon from your pup, but they can be quite costly. Vacuum chambers and a completely sealed situation can extract every bit of carbon, but for most situations you will only need approximately 200mg to complete a 1kt diamond from your pup. Sometimes that is all you need to create a memory from your pup that will last forever.

Process

Carbon is the element which composes all diamonds. Among any carbon based life-form (humans and dogs) bodies are composed of approximately twenty percent carbon. After your pup’s cremation, facilities utilize the ashes which will contain carbon to begin the creation of a diamond. It commonly takes between seven and ten weeks to build the right heat and pressure to form diamonds from your pup’s ashes. Some facilities will affect the colors to your specifying – Nitrogen turns them fancy yellow, heat turns a yellow green, and radiation turns a green red. Boron turns a colorless blue and a colorless is grown in the absence of nitrogen. These color changes are extremely rare occurrences in the natural world and can definitely add uniqueness to your puppy gem.

Cost

There is a variable price range for this procedure. Costs start at around $2,000 US, and can reach as high as $25,000 US, but it all depends on what kind of gem you are seeking. The more karats you want your puppy-gem to possess the more it will cost. The pigmentation process can vary the cost a slight bit so that you are able to choose what kind of radiance your pup shines in the afterlife.

Value

Diamonds have some of the highest value in the world. They sparkle and shine- helping us to remember special dates such as weddings and anniversaries. These gems are not just a thing of monetary value- they are memory storage devices. Your pup has such an impact in your life, perhaps burying them doesn’t seem like enough.

Priceless

Your pup has a value like no other object in the world. A once living creature that shined in your life is hard to forget. This process allows us humans to keep our pup’s shining forever. We can look down at our fingers or on a necklace to enable us to remember the beauty of what once was. These memories never leave us- because diamonds last forever.
