This card is going to some friends of ours in Kentucky.  Their furry four legged baby recently crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.  Boston (or, Bossy, as many of the neighbors called him) was such a sweetheart who roamed the neighborhood and knew all the neighbors.  My favorite and most vivid memory of him was the day he and Chynna, another neighbor's dog sat for photos with my golden retriever/chow mix Sammy on her "sweet" sixteenth birthday.   My dear neighbor set her kitchen table with a pretty tablecloth, good china and silver for 3 place settings.  In the center of the table was a very large, many wicked, candle sitting on a cake plate resembling a birthday cake.  In 3 chairs placed around the table were Sammy, Boston and Chynna, all wearing party hats.  It was the funniest sight I and my neighbors have ever seen.  We laughed ourselves silly while all three dogs sat quite contentedly around the table.

On to the card:

Paper from my stash, sentiment from Club Scrap.

I'm also submitting this for the current Skipping Stones Designs challenge #108.

Thanks for peeking!

What a thoughtful card Carol. Loved the story. It made me smile. My neighbour lost her dog of 18 yrs.( I think) yesterday too. I know it is a great loss to her. I am sure your friend will love the card.
