On Saturday, May 15th we said goodbye to our best friend of 14 years, Noah. We chose to have him cremated and have the ashes returned to us. Along with Noah’s ashes, we were given a lock of his fur and one of your kits. Truthfully, it took me a few days to finally open the kit to even look at his paw print. I was overcome with such sadness reading the instructions and then suddenly I was crying tears of relief and joy. At the bottom of the instructions I saw the note about being assembled by people with… Continue Reading
Thank you so much for helping me with my order! My beautiful Dukie, handsome Mini Pin mix, passed on Aug. 24 and I ordered several months ago from you all the [Copy Kit] to make more paw prints. That kit came in record time with no glitches. In processing life after the passing, it took me a while to finally make [the copy prints] of the original paw print the Vet made for me when he passed. The Vet cremated my Dukie and gave me everything in a beautiful gift bag set of all the items and info on how… Continue Reading
In the seven years I worked with you all and your company, I logically knew the purpose of the clay paws. However, a couple weeks ago I became aware of the emotional purpose of a clay paw. I lost my first dog kiddo, Bruno, to a degenerative condition. As earth shattering and heart breaking as his passing was, there was a small feeling of solace as I held the clay paw with his imprint on it. I wanted to send a personal thank you to World By The Tail for providing a small item with such a large impact.
When we have severe weather coming Joshua and Jeremiah’s prints are the one thing that I wrap in tissue paper and bubble wrap and take with me to the basement. If the weather is going to be bad but probably not require us to go to the basement I still wrap them up and put them in a drawer where I pray that they will be safe. I’m sure this probably sounds silly to a lot of people but that’s how important their prints are to us.
Just a short note to thank you for your many kindnesses during our recent loss. Bailey was family to us and you both reinforced our feelings about her in so many ways. One, in particular stands out. Moments after Bailey’s death, [our veterinarian] asked us if we wanted to make a clay print of Bailey’s paw as a lasting memento of her. We were intrigued by the idea and found it so satisfying to do this. The paw print was the first tangible remembrance available to us within moments of her death. It gave us a “caring” task to perform… Continue Reading
My wife, Mary and I recently had to put our pup Ella to sleep. She was about 4 years old when she came to us and we spent the last 12 years with Ella. She was kind, gentle, with a great sniffer and the most soulful eyes. I could go on and on about her, but that is not why I wanted to reach out. When we picked up Ella’s ashes from our vet yesterday, they included her paw impression in your ClayPaws mold and it was so special for us to have and to hold and cherish for the… Continue Reading
Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful product line and resource for those of us who have [experienced] pet loss. I look forward to ordering the glaze and some ribbons to decorate my memorial paw print. Thanks again for such an amazing and beautiful way to help us all commemorate our pets.
I love my little Sammi’s paw print that my vet’s office gave us. I received the print unbaked, so I really appreciate you taking the time to explain the baking process. I love how detailed it is. I can feel the texture of her pads and see the lines of fur (she had furry pads). I look forward to preserving this print and making a display of it, along with photos, cards we’ve received, and her urn. You are doing a beautiful thing. It is comforting and nice to know others understand the feelings attached to loving and losing a… Continue Reading
