Remembering Casey

Today would have been Casey's 11th birthday.

Momma still thinks about him a lot and gets leaky. I try to sneak up and lick her or nibble her arm so she laughs instead. It's hard work! But today we're remembering him with a smile instead of tears. And look at the amazing birthday present we got!

This paperweight was made by an LBR volunteer. Momma bid on it in an LBR auction, and then it was made specially for her. Do you want to know what makes it so special? See the white swirls in there? Those are Casey's ashes! Yup, this is a very very special memorial stone, and Momma has it on our bedside table now so he can be with us for always! Isn't that pretty pawesome?

Happy barkday, Casey! I wish I'd known you. I pawmise I'm taking good care of Momma for you while you're at the Bridge.

Edit: We were actually making this post for tomorrow, Casey's birthday. But Momma accidentally hit "publish" before setting the date, and it's too confusing trying to edit it. So it's just a day early. :P


  1. we wisch you a heavenly Happy Birthday for tomorrow Casey... you are in our heart and in our memories... furever&ever

  2. I just did the same thing, hit publish for tomorrow and it went today, I pulled it back but I know what you mean. I did know Casey and miss him to. He was such a wonderful and beautiful boy... Happy Birthday in heaven Casey

  3. That is so pretty and such a good way to keep Casey close by.

  4. I send you extra hugs today and tomorrow. I have never seen anything like this with ashes. It is beautiful and perfect colors for a Texas angel

    I agree about trying a do over when I do that blogger sees it as a repeat and it won’t show up
    on lots of readers!

  6. We think it is allowed to smile and be a little tearful too when remembering beloved pets.
    The memorial stone is a beautiful idea.
