  1. Wow, I didn't know this cemetery existed. Thank you for finding this and sharing it. I am hugging my dogs 10x times today!

  2. I was not aware that places like this exsisted for K-9's. What a great tribute to their dedication and service. Mumzie

  3. That's a wonderful place to honor these dedicated helpers.

  4. This is really touching. Very nice photo essay.

  5. PS - shame about the stolen markers. I wonder if they can be found on e-Bay and returned to their intended location.


So nice to hear from you!

Warm regards,
