    Default Our thanks to Gooser! re: Chopper's Urn

    Who would think that our beloved goofy Gooser is a very talented wood worker and has a heart of gold?

    We returned from the honeymoon to find the most beautiful urn ever waiting for us at home, custom built by the Gooser for our recently lost Choppy puppy.

    We've spent hours staring at it. Thinking about Chopper. Smiling, crying, and talking about him and what he meant to our little family.

    Thank you so much Mike for doing this for us. It means so much to Staci and I, and will forever be in our home making sure Chopper is always with us.

    Shayne & Staci


    The top has a place for a photograph, but i think i like the way it looks with the decoy in it.

    That looks very nice.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    I'm so glad you recieved it!!
    There is no darker day then when one of our dogs pass.

    I never thought of having a resting place for mine!
    Wished I would have!

    I think the decoy on the top is perfect!

    Good work Gooser!

    You have a real heart.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
