    Thumbs up Thanks Gooser - you rock!

    I wanted to thank Gooser for the wonderful and beautiful urn he crafted for my Flash. I asked him to make something unique and special which represented just how much Flash meant to me - I think he nailed it! This picture does not do it justice.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart Mike, my boy now has a place to rest that is fitting for a heart dog!



    I'm also curious just how many other RTFers have been fortunate enough to have such a wonderful hand crafted urn from the Gooser? He made one for our Ranger, too when we lost him a couple years back, now him and Flash sit next to each other.

    p.s. Gooser - what kind of wood is it made out of again?

    Major tear jerker Lainee. Rest in peace Flash.

    Beautiful work Gooser.

    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

    Mike made one for Jake last year. Like the one for Flash it is beautiful and unique.

    I saw this in person, and I have to say, dang Mike you do great work. Very kind of you to do that for Lainee and Flashman.

    I also saw this in person and will say that Mr. Mike Baker has talent. This is a wonderful piece to look at and hold cherished memories.
