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.
