So one of my fur clients was diagnosed with a rare disease and was given only a couple of months to live at the most. So i decided to try to get a print of his paw and see if I could invert it to look realistic. Here is the before the inverted, after the inverted, and the second try at the inverted since the first one looked meh. I am very happy with the 2nd one and will be putting a poem at the bottom to give to her as a gift since he has now passed. I love you Pookie. You will be missed :’(.
Too sweet! Just lost one of mine over the weekend. 11 years of joy. Always a hole in your heart…
That is a really special idea. Neat memory piece to have. My vet took a plaster print of my beloved dog’s paw and I still have it.
I am so sorry for your loss :’(
Yes, I’m sorry too…I hate losing one. They all have such individual personalities.
Oh my, it’s suddenly become quite dusty in here! Beautiful sentiment and nice project.
There’s a twenty-year old cat - Miss Kitty, named by my daughter - sitting on the back of the sofa engaged in a brisk nap. I may disturb her for a pre-emptive hug. Of course, that makes the OTHER five jealous…
haha always :). That just means they all get love
Very touching. Great job.
Beautiful idea and implementation! And @bkressley, so sorry for your loss. We’ve got a 19-year old teetering on the edge and I know we will be blubbering fools when she goes.
I am glad they were able to do that for you
It turned out beautifully!
Thanks for sharing this. My cranky old man cat just passed away, and it has been hitting me much harder than I expected. We took paw prints and I know that I want to do some sort of memorial using the GF, but I can’t even wrap my head around it yet.
I’m bookmarking this post for inspiration once I’m ready.
Oh, I’m sorry…they really do get into your heart, no matter how cranky they are.
I am so sorry for your loss. Hopefully this will inspire you.
I’ve now produced over 100 of the paw-print frames for my wife’s veterinary practice. The clients do really appreciate it (admittedly during a sad occasion)
