I made this as a memorial to our dog Willow. We adopted her from a rescue group in February 2005 and lost her to cancer in February of 2015. She was beautiful and we miss her.

A couple photos:

Close up of the engraving. The circle of dogs is from a Celtic cross stitch pattern I found on line.

A short slideshow of the build.

That's great that you incorporate that into your haunt. I did the same with my dog that passed after 15yrs. She used to run around my cemetery while I was setting up. Have a great day!

Roxy - that is such a nice tribute to Willow. I like the coloring, it looks like the colors of her fur. Oh, and I love the Celtic sign too!

Thanks, my dears:) And you're correct, CC. The color choices were chosen to reflect Willow's actual coloring. I also wanted to make something different from the usual, more grayish ones we have in abundance in our display.

BTW, the speckling effect was done with a toothbrush - dip in diluted acrylic paint and then run a thumb over the bristles, aiming in the general direction of the surface you want to speckle. I highly recommend using that technique outside because not all of the paint drops go where they're supposed to go:jol:

:jol:Thanks Roxy, I will definitely borrow the Celtic dog ring idea. I absolutely love it. I am still so sad for you and Spooky over Willow, but I know you gave her a one in a million home. She is smiling down at you both, thinking to herself how lucky Abby is.:)

Beautiful! You can see the skill of the loving hands that crafted it. And I would guess not all the speckled drops are paint. I would venture to say there is a tear or two mixed in there. My thoughts are with you and Spooky missing her this Halloween season.
