“We found our Sheltie, Data Chance, at the SPCA [Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals] …

… He was removed from his owner for cruelty and neglect,” Richard and Helen Frederick tell us. “When we saw him all by himself in the cage, he was so skinny, a real raggedy dog. We adopted him and quickly grew to love him so much. He was such a part of our family for so many years that when he passed away quietly, we carefully buried him in his favorite place, a cool shaded spot against our home, and wanted to have a permanent marker of some sort.”

“We found PlaqueMaker [by searching for “plaques” on] and immediately knew that a little plaque mounted against brick was just the thing. We had his paw print, which we included along with his name and our artwork we sent in.”

“We visit that special place and above his resting place is the plaque you made for us. We still miss him terribly and always will. He was, after all ‘our boy’.”

Take Lots of Pictures! “In a time of difficulty, such as a lost pet, a picture can be used to help recovering loved ones,” says Dina Mack of Dina Mack Photography – who photographed her puppy, Ruby, at the left. “When reflecting on a great image that can capture the personality of a companion that you love and sharing the loving pet with your friends and family, I find that a great image of your pet can be priceless.”

Of course, a picture of your beloved pet will always bring a smile to your face … and today is a great day to chronicle your dog’s life.
