Got my dog's ashes back yesterday.
They did end up being in a hand-carved wooden box, which is quite pretty, and has a little gold flower pressed into the top.
PLUS... the weirdest thing happened.
I'd said to Mum that I'd think about getting a pug or a chihuahua to replace my lil' pup. There was a lady in the waiting room at the vet's with a pregnant pug.
She and I got talking and she wants to give away the puppies her dog will have. So I gave her my number to give me a call when the pug has her pups.
We'll see what happens...
