One year ago today...
It was one year ago today that the sweetest dog ever left this earth but not our hearts. Carly was truly a special dog that I still think of every day, and probably will the rest of my life. I wanted a way to memorialize her and after much though and running it by Frank, on this one year anniversary I had this done:
I got a little paw print on my foot because we always called her a "foot dog" as she was always either laying on our feet, or right by them with one of her front paws resting on one of our feet. So now her foot is on me forever.
Here is a close up. It's hard to tell scale, but it would totally be obscured if you put a dime over it, so it's tiny. I wanted you to be able to see the little heart, too. The tattooist did a very good job and had his own memorial tattoo of his dog, so he understood why I wanted to do this. The actually tattooing I wouldn't call painful, just irritating. It's so small it went quite quickly too. So that's my memorial to the best Wiggly Girl that there ever was...and now she'll be with me until I leave this earth too.
