Just wanted to share...

It was very sad and unexpected. Inside the card in a zip lock bag was some of his collar hair. I broke down, I was glad they did it but it was very sad. It was as if I'd seen him again.

The card's front reads

"Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you.
I loved you so...
'twas heaven here with you." Isla Richardson

Here's the last pic I took of Marco that day.

My vet does that too - one of my friends recently had a pet pts at Washington State University's Vet Hospital - they gave her the collar, some hair and a "plaster cast" of his little paw. Vets I think are getting a lot more sensitive about this.

Vets have their favourites as well! The vet that saved
Snappers life when I adopted him from a valley shelter in
southern California kept his practice there until he moved his practice to Orange county about 10 yrs later. We learned that he
had moved to the OC like us & re-united Snapper with him as a patient! He became our new/old vet once again when Snapper
turned 11, and was just as sad to see him called home as we
were! (But, we were all gratefull for the fact that Snapper
would not have lived 13 yrs without his care)! (He was the one
to coin the term, timex beag) and a testament to his care as he
got to see Snapper from his rough begining to his end! (Thumbup)!

Btw, our current vet does the same thing as well,(even though
their favourite breed is a scottie)! But they also love beags
& their staff lean more towards beags! (When Goober had to
have a chipped molar removed) in 2001 I had to wait about 20
minutes as the staff took turns walking him @ the ajacent park!
(He is one of their favourite patients)!
