Providing a Meaningful and Loving Resting Place for your Beloved Pet

Welcome and we are so sorry for the sorrow and heartbreak that brings you to visit us.

After loosing my own first pup in 2016, I was devastated with the loss. It was so hard to find peace after loosing him. His name was Niko, he was 11, I could never imagine he would cross the rainbow bridge at that age, he was playful, young at heart and overall a healthy pup. One day Ashley noticed his breathing overnight had changed and he seemed to be short of breath, I had already left to the shop and within a few hours I got the call that his lungs were filling up with fluid and he was going to drown. The likely cause a failing heart. I left him to what I felt was another day in the morning and several hours later I had to say goodbye to him in our arms. It still tear up to this day every time I relive and think about that day. We have three pups now and it doesn’t make the loss of our first any easier still.

I wanted to change and add to our woodworking abilities and do something for those who are going through the same thing we did, and with any hope bring them an ounce of peace and help them bring their pup back home where they can see them forever. A goodbye message and or the words you wanted to say but couldn’t find at the time can be expressed to them on their final resting place.
