Thank you, Rene.  You are so talented and I just love it.  I highly recommend Rene's handcrafted items in the Etsy shop.  https://www.ets.....p/Tripawds  (I don't think I did that right)

The tears were flowing when I opened it.  It couldn't have turned out better.  

Oh my...I came back to edit this post and my Libby girl's banner popped up!  Thanks Ms. Libs my Heavenly SweetPea.

Hugs,

Amy & Spirit Libby (Liberty)

Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13.  Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14.  She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self.  Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14

Beautiful, this is so awesome.  The only time mine come off is if I sleep or shower.  I wear them all the time.  I finally bought a nice gold chain to put them on.  Now I just have to find the right beads to seperate the 2.

 

I love her work.  Have had guardian angel tags made for all my dogs from her too :)

 

Hugs

Oh Amy ... it's so pretty!!! It looks like the one I had made for Shelby! I love the little paw print on the top part that is holding the circle. Rene  does do amazing work! I am so happy with my necklace. I wear it every day and I don't usually wear the same piece of jewelry daily. It was definitely crafted with lots of love!!! Enjoy! Libby is definitely with you! XOXO

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Libby's banner again! Yay! Can I say "yay" and have tears rolling at the same time? 

Michelle, I saw Sassy's guardian angel tag and thought that was so cool!  I read the directions about not wearing it in the shower and put it on after all makeup, perfume, hairspray, etc is applied.  A gold chain will be nice too.

Alison, I asked Rene to make mine like yours but with only a couple of changes.  I loved yours and wanted something like it. The piece her name is on is in copper and I asked her to surprise me with the rest.  Pawesomeness! Yes, I can feel the love in the piece.  It's so very special.

Hugs,

Amy & Spirit Libby....I miss her so very much.

Oh, it's lovely!  Just gorgeous.  I'm teary, too, seeing this.  A marvelous tribute and a timeless piece to wear nearest your heart, Amy.  Libby is SOOOOO missed.  (Man, where did these tears come from....?!)

HUGS.  Wear with love and pride.

~ Katy & Jackson

ACL tear in right hind leg 12/5/12 and scheduled ACL repair surgery 12/21/12. Pre-op xrays revealed osteosarcoma. Amputation 12/28/12.  Chemo (carboplatin) started Jan 10, 2013 and ended on April 5, for a total of 5 doses. He handled carbo like a champ!  No side effects.  We started metronomic therapy at his third chemo and have been also doing some holistic treatments.  He's a lively, playful 10 year old huskie-boarder collie and a very proud member of the Winter Warriors!  Our love. Our funny little guy!

I agree! It is beautiful! I also love the new clasp. I am going to do some more shopping myself. I want to check out the Angel tags. I also like the copper( penny) idea. Rene does great work! Love from Lori and Ty

Thank you so much, you are too sweet. I'm constantly playing around with new ideas & designs, many of which I haven't put in the store, so if you ever have something in mind let me know and I'll tell you if it's something I can do at this point. Thanks again. xoxo

Beautiful pieces indeed. Lovely tributes, and always close to your heart.

Deb and Angel Lexie* Diagnosed at age 13. Tried radiation first; wish we had amputated upon diagnosis (even with lung mets). Joined Club Tripawd April 2014 & Lexie loved life on 3 legs! Advice: Start physical therapy as soon as your vet clears it, especially hydrotherapy if available :-) See Lexie pics here.
