Everlasting Memories of Our Blueberry

Self Portrait, Kimberly and Blue, Dog Mom, Fur Mom

It’s been 5 months since we lost our Blue and I still cry.

He was the perfect dog.

Every day when I come home, I can still see him running to greet the car.  I would open my door and he’d hop in, crawl over me to settle in the passenger seat with a big smile.  Then he’d lean in for a kiss.

As I drove to my space, I’d ask him about his day and tell him how much I love him.

Gosh I loved him.

Scout and Zoey remind us of Blue daily with their antics – the crazy, back and forth zoomies when they’re excited; the jumping and spinning when it’s time to go outside, the sleeping on the back of the sofa, kissing us with teeth – and much much more.  It’s the Aussie traits that make me smile while choking me up too.

I loved him.

I was recently introduced to Everlasting Memories where they create jewelry and accessories that help us remember our loved one.s  When I was reading the email from Hallie telling me about the business, I burst into tears (to my utter shock) and then requested two things…

  • a pendant for me
  • a key chain for J

The pendant is going to be transferred to a charm necklace ala Beautiful Creatures.  It says “Blueberry, Our Heart Dog” where the “heart” is actually the shape of a heart.

J’s key chain says “Blue, my baby boy” something he repeated over and over while holding Blue’s still, little body.

The key chain has an image of Blue that is etched in (but you can’t feel it); it’s beautifully done and captures the light to spotlight are beautiful baby boy.

When I gave his key chain, he got choked up and immediately grab his keys to add Blue.

I used to see these businesses and think “how morbid,” but now I can’t express how thankful I am for their generosity.  Everlasting Memories gave us a moment to remember our Blue in the best way.

Gosh, I loved him.

  2. I think this is a beautiful thing. What a precious way to remember your baby every day. We have our Clee-o’s collar in our bedroom, our first Aussie.

  6. I hear you. Soon it’s going to be a year since Jasmine’s passing and we still get sad. Fortunately, the memories of her last days seem to have started to fade in favor of happy memories. So glad the brain works that way.

  9. These companies provide a service that is needed, not necessarily something anyone really wants to need but we do need them. Those are beautiful keepsakes for your precious boy.

  10. I am so sorry for your loss. My cat Edison ran away in July last year. I had a bond with him that I’ve never had with another animal. I still cry, so I understand. I keep pictures of him around my house. I still hope one day he’ll come home to me, but I suppose God had other plans.
