  • Remy

    The fourteen years that Remy has been with me have been a delight. We've always been there for each other and there has been something of a symbiotic relationship between us. Good times, bad times; they were always Gill and Remy times. Lately, he's been unwell and this morning I took him to the vet for one last visit.

    Be at peace, my dearest friend. This is the only way you could ever break my heart.

    So sad

    Hi Gill,

    I feel empathy for you this morning: I'm so sad for your loss of an old friend.

    Remember the good times you had together, and his memory shall live forever in your heart.

            Our condolences Gill.
            A loss is always hard to deal with.
            When I lost my father someone told me these comforting words.

            "We are never as close to someone as we are when they are gone. Now they are always in our heart and only a thought away."

            May all the memories of Remy be good ones and if you need any support please call upon any of your scrolling friends here.

            Bless you and yours

                  My deepest sympathy for your loss.
                  I usually comfort myself (not right away - it hurts too much, but later) that all my best friends will be waitiing at the rainbow bridge when I get there, and they'll all be in the best of health.
                  I see from your picture that you are still quite young, but I am not, and I saw a bumper sticker the other day that expresses my frustration at that. It said "Getting old means never getting to own all the dogs you want to." That's I!!
                  My thoughts are with you during your grieving.

                    Anyone who says dogs don't go to Heaven never loved one. Remy will be there waiting for you. Take care.

                        Gill, sorry for your loss.
                        I had to put one of my friends down about 10 yrs. ago and I still think about him.
                        We don't get to have them long enough.

                            Many thanks, everyone, for your kind words. They are an enormous comfort.

                            Little Remy used to love walking every day in some nearby beautiful woods and his remains will be scattered there. Some day (but hopefully not for a long time yet) my partner and I hope to have our ashes scattered there also.

                              I am sorry for your loss. They all have their own special personalities.

                              We lost our dog Teka about a year ago. We still laugh about her silly antics and she will be a part of our lives forever.

                                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                                Was it a good idea.....?...

                                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                                I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

                                I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                                I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....
