Welcome to the Dash Locket Sunday Selfie after a major net outage that left us unable to post this week.

BUT we are back for our buddies The Cat on My Head and the celebration of friendship that is the Sunday Selfie! We apologise not visiting everyone but we will get you all this week – and make up for our ‘missing in action’ non comments! Never joined the Sunday Selfie? Please do, just grab the badge, add the link and have a blast! 

Oh, you want to know about the locket selfie?……..

The Dash Locket

When Dash was killed, three years ago, we got a locket, hoping it would be a fitting memorial, but were never happy with it.  Then just before Valentine’s Day Mum and Dad went into a local jewellery shop. Not the junk jewellers you find in every Mall, but a family owned business, Sherringtons, and they had this locket. Dad suggested he buy it for Mum as a gift for Valentine’s and she loved the idea.

It is silver, and they engraved Dash’s name, then carefully transferred the fur and Dash’s picture to the new and most precious of places. 

We all love it and are glad we have a fitting memorial for our blog’s Founder Cat.

    A locket is a very lovely remembrance. When Abby died I had a pendant made and had her birthstone in the shape of heart included on one side, on the reverse they place a white gold moon and used the special quote we always used and still use for Abby…love you to the moon and back engraved on the back. I wore it yesterday. I hope you wear your locket often.
