Splurge on Skin – R.I.P. Annie

Annie was a special dog. So sweet, so devoted. Tracy & Melissa rescued her from the lot next door where she had been kept — neglected, abused then abandoned. Under their loving care she flourished in her new family, but she was was not a young dog and her health eventually began to fail. Annie’s last days were not pretty; she slowly lost her senses of sight and sound, and then started losing her cognitive abilities as well. She was in pain and disoriented, yet it was hard for Tracy & Melissa to say good-bye. The day finally came last October, when they put her to sleep, in the best possible setting under the circumstances: with her family and at home.

Soon after, (Day of the Dead, 2009) Tracy memorialized this very special, very much missed member of her family with a small tattoo on her right arm. I was honored that she chose Splurge, my first font, for the lettering.

Here it is:

Annie, you were loved in life and are missed in death. I hope Doggie Heaven is as good as they say.
