Truffles, My Christmas Angel

We had planned to debut Mudpie's first Christmas card today, but upon further discussion decided to wait until she gets her printed cards out in the mail...so stay tuned for that!

Instead, we wanted to show you the special Christmas memorial spot that we created for Angel Truffles. Since her portrait, paw print, and ashes rest on a table in the living room that gets moved to make room for the Christmas tree, I had to find a new spot of honor for her during the holiday season.

At night I turn on the small tree's white lights and my little angel shines like the brightest star in the sky.

  5. All the firsts are the worst according to my mom. Keep Truffles front and center, she will never be forgotten. We still have my mom's last dog's photos all over and even display her Christmas photo with Santa every year.

  22. Angel Truffles loves it, I bet! Thank you for sharing it, and for reminding me that when I miss the less than handful of favorites I've had in the past nearly 4 decades, I am in the majority of cat lovers! The signs over the memorial are great! You have made a wonderful tribute to one of your very best friends, and it is beautiful! jeaniedannheim (at) ymail (dot) com

  32. A beautiful memorial to Truffles. We have a little spot with photos of all of our beloved pets who have crossed the rainbow bridge and I am filled with love and wonderful memories of each of them each time I glance at it.
