Omyxnox and BBM, those are wonderful ideas.  Although tattoos aren't my thing, I've admired the skills and artistry of tattooists.  I like the idea of a pinch of ashes being incorporated into jewelry.  Perhaps when things settle a bit around here.

And for the next chapter:  A week after Zena's passing, DH needed his doggie fix.  Too soon emotionally for adopting another doggie, we visited a shelter just to look and to give some playtime loving to some of the critters.  The only dog not jumping in its kennel and barking up a storm was a red purebreed Siberian Husky.   The giant tribble came home with us.  Unfortunately DH hadn't researched about Huskies and their energy.  A few weeks later, DH decided that "Tabasco" needed a playmate, and returned to the shelter just to look for a potential playbuddy.  You know where this is leading.  We learned from the staff that Tabasco was part of a bonded pair, and the other Sibe was adopted the day before we got Tabasco.  That accounts for him being sad in his kennel cage when we met.  A smaller doggie caught DH's attention, interacted well, and came home with us.  "Josie" balances out Tabasco in many ways.

Here they are, Tabasco and Josie - aka Tribble and Trouble -- Kremlin and Gremlin

Tattoos aren't my thing either, but a great sentiment for those it is for.

Those doggies are so adorable!!!!!!  I wish you both lots of love with those new fur babies.

Thank you so much!  It's quite an adventure and an ongoing learning experience.  Our vacuum will soon wear out from the clumps of fur that Tabasco sheds (hence the tribbles reference).   Pets are delightful parts of our hearts.

I love when people say they are going to the pet shelter "just to look" or play or volunteer or whatever. LOL, no you are not, you silly thing you.

They are adorable. Congrats on the new additions to your family Smiley.

LOL Thanks so much! 

And now for another page from My Life with Dogs:
    -- Backstory --
In the summer of 2018, my teeth were all pulled by an oral surgeon due to receding gums and repeated infections.
 After waiting the requisite healing time,  I visited the denture doc for moldings, only to be informed that more surgery was required.  Back to the oral surgeon.  With no dental insurance, this meant another major blow to the budget and prolonged delays for molds.  Three months ago I finally got my dentures.  Yay for smiling!  There have been numerous adjustments and yet another surgery is recommended. 
A few nights ago, I set the dentures on the bathroom counter in their plastic bath cup, far back against the backsplash.  The phone rang in another room.  When I returned to the bathroom, that giant tribble was chomping with his front paws on the counter and the cup was tipped over.  Bottom denture has not been seen since.  The dentist said that dogs are attracted to dentures because of their owner's scent, and my bottom denture was munched and swallowed.  Owning pets is a continuous learning experience.

Oh, JS!  I have many dental issues too (I joke with my kids that I'm so old the dentist doesn't fill cavities anymore, he just gives me a crown!  Tongue) and even with insurance, so much money has to be laid out!  I've also learned in life to never trust that kids or animals won't get into your stuff, no matter how carefully you put it somewhere.  I'm sorry that happened to you!

LAB, you are absolutely right.  Kids and animals are smarter and more determined than we give them credit.  I hope your dental issues will be quick and painless to fix!
