The Dog Tree

Let's take a little trip across town, to a local park. In recent years, it has become more of a dog park.  Many people walk their dogs there, and have become friends.


Every year at Christmas time, they decorate this tree in memory of their dogs, past and maybe present. Usually they only decorate the top half, but this year it was the bottom half. Go figure.










When I yell at my dog to stop barking, I wonder if he thinks “This is awesome! We are barking together!”

I think a memorial tree for our beloved pets is a great idea.

The idea of the dog tree is rather nice. It's a nice way to remember friends who are gone.

How cool and how bittersweet both. And that quote make me laugh out loud! It is probably what they think.

This is so sweet. I don't have any dogs to put out ornaments for, but I'd remember Katherine, Amos, Owen and Ginger, kitty-cats of beloved memory.

What a nice idea to have a memorial tree. I wonder why they only decorate half of it though?
