Capturing a precious memory in silver
Xara – such a beautiful soul
Xara was almost 12 years old. We got her at 9 weeks old and she had an amazing life. We live on a small holding with our horses, another dog and cats. She had so much freedom, loved being outside with us all the time, either at the stables or up the field. We lost our other dog Blue 4 years ago and she grieved for some time. We too, missed him so got her another friend, Red (I’m not very adventurous with names :)). She was so good with a super excited puppy who didn’t leave her alone for a minute. They became best friends. She enjoyed the quiet life in her later years and would just lie in the field and watch over everything. She really was a beautiful soul and even in her younger years, she always seemed to have an old head on young shoulders. She was a big dog with strong features, who could look quite intimidating but she was the most gentle dog.
Her passing was very sudden and unexpected. I had gone to the US for a horse trip with friends and the day after I returned home she had a seizure, we took her straight to the vets but she had another seizure there. I thought the kindest thing for her was to let her go. I believe she waited for me to come home, to go. She was such a proud dog and as heart breaking as it was for me to make this decision, I wanted her to go with dignity. I laid on the floor with her and held her paw so she knew I was there, that’s when I took the photo, knowing this was our last moment together.
A lady at work gave me the link to your website as she had a paw print done of her dog. I knew I couldn’t do that now and that’s when I contacted you about having my photo put onto a necklace. I wasn’t sure if it was something you could do but you did it. It’s amazing and so beautiful to me. I haven’t taken the necklace off once and I feel that Xara is with me always now.
I can’t believe how much this has made me cry writing this.
