I wanted to write and say thank you for such a novel idea with your ClayPaws kits. My husband and I yesterday made the most difficult decision of our lives to put our beloved four-year-old cat Jake to sleep after a three month battle with hepatic lipidosis. Before the veterinarian made the injection, she walked back in the examining room with an impression of his paw for us. I was so moved. I plan on ordering one for our cat at home, our new kitten when we get one, and all of my family members who have cats whom I… Continue Reading
I want to thank you for offering such a unique idea as the ClayPaws kits through veterinarians. I had to put my cat Angel of 20 years to sleep due to kidney failure. It was at that moment that I realized I hardly had pictures of her. Having the ClayPaws print done right after she was put to sleep meant so much to me. It is such a sentimental and tangible item that I can look at and remember her by. Thank you for a wonderful, heartfelt idea. I’ll cherish it forever.
I just wanted to write a brief note to thank you and your staff. Today, Sunday September 7, 2003, I had to take my black lab named Jack into the State University Animal Hospital to be euthanized. He fought a very tough battle with lymphoma. I was blessed with Jack eight years ago and my life will never be the same without him. Jack and I went everywhere together. Today was the toughest thing that I have ever had to do in thirty-two years. I had to have my best friend put to sleep and to say good-bye to him…. Continue Reading
I wanted to let you know how much our ClayPaws prints have meant to us. Satin, our first of two litter mate sisters passed away July 2004 from cancer. Her sister Silkie passed away in February 2005 also from cancer. Both veterinary hospitals that treated our girls offered us the chance to forever capture additional memories of the “girls” by using your ClayPaws Kits to do their paw prints. It has meant the world to us! Thanks again for your product. We wouldn’t trade our ClayPaws prints for anything.
Our 12 1/2 year old pug, Jack, passed away suddenly last week. When I picked up his leash, I was presented with his paw prints. I cannot tell you how grateful we are that this vet had your product and was so kind to give us this memory of Jack. Needless to say, I was not expecting it and was a puddle of tears for several hours, which was not a bad thing. It has helped with our grieving. Thank you again for a wonderful product.
Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the ClayPaws kit. We are in California and have just recently lost our sweet 16 ½ year old dog, Buddy. Before he left us our vet was able to make an impression of his paw using your product. Thank you for the memories. We were doubly touched to know that you hire developmentally disabled persons and that you are located in Fort Collins . Hit home with us as I work with the handicapped and my daughter was a student at CSU. We are touched by your product and… Continue Reading
On Christmas Eve, I had to put my soul mate down – Raleigh, my 12 year old Dalmation. My veterinarian and staff made an excruciatingly painful experience much easier by their compassion, kindness and thoughtfulness. It could have been a much more difficult day for me. As I was leaving, the tech brought me Raleigh’s collar, and handed me something. I didn’t know what it was until she told me that she had made an imprint of Raleigh’s paw for me in clay, and told me to bake it, but that the instructions were on the enclosed card. There will… Continue Reading
I just wanted to write to you to tell you how very thankful I am for your thoughtful keepsakes of clay paws! I love the idea and have never owned one before. Recently, my almost 15 year old childhood Golden Retriever had to be put to sleep due to a severe gastrointestinal lymphoma complication. It was a very heartbreaking experience for me and my family, but we were comforted to know that we were there with him till the end and he lived a long happy life. A vet tech was clipping some fur for me and offered me a… Continue Reading
