Goodbye, Sweetheart

It is never easy to say goodbye to a friend.  My little miniature dachschund, Sweetheart, had been at my side for over fourteen years.  Technically she was my son's dog, but she had decided long ago that I was her human and anyone who's had a doxie knows there is no changing their minds.  Ever.  They are very stubborn little critters and unfailingly loyal.  

Someone suggested I make a piece of jewelry in her memory and it was incredibly theraputic.  I spent a day looking for a photo, which led to looking back through fourteen years worth of happy memories.  I found myself smiling more than crying.  

I decided to use a color palette based on Sweetie colors (or Boo as I called her), with black and brown and white cord and beads.  I made micro macrame bracelet and I think it's really beautiful.  

A long time ago I'd picked up some doxie charms.  It adds the perfect little touch:

Goodbye, Boo.  You will be forever in my heart.
