Pet Memorial Review and Giveaway, Adirondack Stone  

Pet's are always a part of your family.If
it is a dog, cat, ferret or even the fish we have. I
don't think I ever told you guys about Frankenfish!
We used to have a great fish tank. For years I waited
on a Dog wanting Andrew to be older and could help
for here he is even at 16 and I still take care of the
dog ( tis okay though, she is my baby!) and Andrew
just does a little petting. Well, while I was waiting for
him to mature ( COUGH COUGH! ) enough for
the responsibility ( COUGH COUGH) of a Dog
I could not stand not having a pet so about 8 years
ago we started a fish tank. Nothing fancy about
20 fish, a step up or two from a Guppy and lots
of decor. They lived a few years and eventually
died off and Andrew was never that into them
so I just didn't replace them. One still lived ( about
4 years now ) and surprised me for the life expectancy
of a tank fish isn't all that long but he held on. Then
we got Boo and she fell in love with that fish when
she was a puppy and would hop on a chair and
watch him for hours. I found that adorable and once
again bough a whole bunch of fish for the tank. About
a month after I got them Boo lost interest and I was
again the only one who cared. They lived maybe
two years and started dropping off again and fast too!
Only one survivor. The same fish from the first time
who was now 6 years old. I thought there was no way
he would make it much longer. About 3 months later
I ran out of fish food and was so tired of buying it
I started tossing him bread crumbs. I really could not
fathom why he was still alive for the air pump
broke and the water was not being filtered right for
a month or so before the food ran out and I was pretty
determined not to spend the money for another set up
for a 75 gallon tank and one fish. So bread crumbs and
UN-aerated water and a almost 7 year old fish. Then the filter
broke all together and now we had stale, UN aerated water,
bread crumbs and a 7 year old fish. A year later he was
still alive. I broke down and bought him food for I could not
believe he was still alive and we started calling him
Frankenfish. He is over 9 now and the sole survivor of our
tank and has won the hearts of our whole family and
continues to thrive. How can I not say he belongs here?

I have always had dogs and they have always been
family. From my first dog I got for my 5th birthday, Brindle,
an Irish Setter all the way to Boo, they are part of my heart.
People go to the ends of the world for their pets and
rightly so for they bring so much to our lives. Now my
mother is nuts, sorry Mom it is true and her pup Gabby
wears clothes and even has a Bikini ( Boo would flat out
kill me) and she treats that dog like she is a queen. I
spoil Boo and always will but the clothing is a little on
the silly side for me though she does dress up on
Halloween. The next review I did is sort of a hard subject
for some but when I ran across the site I was so impressed
with their work I had to share. Adirondack Pet memorials
has some testaments to our pets that are as beautiful as
our memories of our little friends. I sent them a letter to
tell them so and they offered a review. Now Boo is still
with me but I thought these stones were so stunning that
instead of waiting to she is with the other loves of my
past why not celebrate her with me now and have a stone
made to place in her favorite spot in the yard. It will be her
special place and if someday she rests there forever I
will know it was hers now! They made me a stone with
her name and Birth date that I am using as a garden and
yard decoration and place for her to snooze on a warm
summer day. It is truly stunning!
Adirondack Stones are made with Stones from the
Mountains and custom engraved with Beautiful details
and Fonts. There is no law that says they have to be
used in the manor they were created for though a
spectacular marker they do make. You can have you
family pets name on them or just your family name
or anything you would like that fits for these stones are
hand cut from the finest pieces and shaped with chisels and
hammers and created with love. They select the stone
for color, appearance, and durability and anything less
then perfect is weeded out. Next, the stones are tumbled
to give the edges a smoothed natural appearance and
soften the edges and then engraved to your specifications.
They have 4 different sizes and five fonts to choose from
and vary in thickness. Take it from me, they are very
heavy and are going to stay where you put them and I
can't get over how elegant the final piece looks. There
is a large selection in the Gallery of ideas and I really
thought it very considerate of them to have a directory
of sites that offer help for those who have lost a pet.
I was thinking how perfect it would be to start a rose
garden to place by the stone to grow with Boo so some
day not only will I have the stone to celebrate her I will
have flowers that are strong and sturdy as she is now
to cherish! This is one of those things we never want to
think of but I for one am happy to know now before
so I can already know about them the day I need them.
I hope it will help my children understand and myself
grieve as well. For now though, the stone will stand as
a testament to her life with us and I hope it will be many
years before I worry about another date on the end. If you
have already suffered the loss of a pet or want to pay
homage to the life one now leads or just have your family
name as a marker for all your family, furry and not,
Adirondack Memorial Pet Stones are a Beautiful way to go.
Pet Memorials have also offered to let one of
my readers have a stone. You do not have to have a
loved pet gone, you can celebrate the life of one now
or have the date your family became whole engraved
under your family name for it is a breathtaking addition
to any yard. To enter just head over to their site and
take a look around then come back here and post it in
a comment. The contest will start tonight and run to
Midnight on March 17th.
USA and 18 and older can enter daily and the winner
will be contacted by email and have 72 hours to
contact me with their mailing information. As always
