Sad news to share - hat to put down my dog, Teddy, today 5/2. Had vet appt this morn for his routine shots. Teddy had been having problem with eating & drooling more so than he usually does. Well, we found out he had cancer of the mouth at the back of his tongue. The vet said he could not remove it and at most he had 4 mths. We decided to put him down & have him cremated. Took him for walk this morn before vet appt. Sad. 

Jan. 1, 2001 - May 2, 2014  RIP  Teddy

Embossed gray background with Cuttlebug African Batik embossing folder to complement the Elephant. Used vellum to create a small pocket to insert the Tag into. Added some ribbon.
