"Sparky was a Labrador/Shepperd who came to us as a puppy. We rescued her from the Everett Animal Shelter and she was the best dog for our children we could have hoped for. Sparky was playful, smart, strong, healthy and sweet. We were blessed to have enjoyed her for 14 years.

We are thankful to Dave and Victoria for giving us the opportunity to grieve for Sparky in the privacy of our home when the time came to let her go. I have to say that when Dave came back with Sparky's ashes and paw print, we had mixed feelings, but once we gathered around with the kids and started decorating Sparky's paw print, it became a very comforting activity. It's nice to have something tangible to remember Sparky by. Sparky was a great dog. We loved her and we will miss her. "
