Write a Memorial for Your Dog

Are you still grieving the loss of your companion? Let the world know how much your dog meant (and still means) to you.

Your Memorial

Write as much as you need—you have about 1,000 words. (Please don't write it in ALL CAPS, or in text-message-ese. Either will make it very hard for others to read your memorial.)

And be sure to upload a photo of your dog so that we all know what he or she looked like.

I hope the process of writing your memorial eases your pain a little.
