Dog Gone Tree

We have a park nearby where quite a few people walk their dogs. These people have become friends, and got the idea to decorate a tree in the park. But not just any tree. This tree is a tribute to their dogs who have passed away. Everyone decorated the tree with pictures of their beloved dogs from the past. Some pf these pictures are quite touching. And now you know why the bottom of the tree is not decorated. The friends still walk their current dogs nearby!









Whoops, gotta go. Someone is coming this way with their dog now!

This post is dedicated to my friend Sandra, who recently lost her beloved Baby.

thank you Ginny, what a super duper idea to decorate a tree. I read each one and love the bare bottom of the tree. dog friendly for reading pee mail... we still love our Baby and our Cooper and our Max, all could be hung on the tree... lovely memorial and a beautiful post

If I lived there I would hang a photo of our white dog that we just lost a few months ago. He spent 18 years in our hearts and he remains there today. I really like the outdoor tree idea.

What a sweet post. It left me with a lump in my throat. I so wish dogs had longer lives...seems so unfair that they should leave us so soon.
Blessings, Joanne
