Those who have owned a dog understands that special bond of friendship that could happen between human and canine. A death of a dog can be as traumatic as losing a love one. Those who have experienced this bond understands why dog memorials are not just a wild idea. We sometimes have to have a memorial to aid us process the grief, and sometimes it just helps us to say goodbye, to say thanks somehow for the years of joy our friend brought us.
Everyone is different, so our memorials could have different depths of meaning. Many people could well be fine having a simple backyard ceremony with few words; other, perhaps would like something more intricate like cremation, dispersing cremains on a place of sentimental value. Sometimes a favourite image is framed, or even a box of memories is created. Some would go for putting a few fur or a pinch of their pet’s cremains in a sealed locket. And yet, for a lot of, none of such dog memorials works, since they only be reminders of what is lost. Whatever they need is something that reminds them a little more about the happiness of a life well-lived, and something which can do honor to their feelings.
This is why some people are choosing another option-to add the remains of their special friend in an inspirational thing of beauty. One artist particularly did this specially and designed her series called the Loving Hearts Tribute Series. Every print the artist makes is a limited edition; she paints heart-themed original painting and creates 100 max giclee print of each one. Upon selection of the dog owner, she/he submits the fur or ashes of this deceased animal for the artist to hand-finish the piece. Every finished print is entirely well suited for display for this is made on gallery-wrap canvas.
In a manner of speaking, the dog becomes part of something wonderful and uplifting; something can keep the happiness and hope flowing to its lifespan and something that will help you cope. In wonderful manner, these heart-themed artworks bring a meaningful tribute.
Nothing brings back your favorite friend, though the good feelings and joyful memories may be preserved for a lifetime with a work of art similar to this. For a few, a tribute this grand is not needed, but for other, nothing less would do. The Loving Hearts Tribute Series could just be the most fitting of dog memorials.
