National Pet Memorial Day

The second Sunday of September (the 8th this year) has been set aside as National Pet Memorial Day. There are many ways to honor and celebrate a pet that you have lost, such as dedicating time to an animal shelter or creating a memorial garden in your pet’s honor. We also think a great way to celebrate a pet is by creating a personalized puzzle—maybe your favorite picture of him or her, or the two of you together. It would be a lovely keepsake and you could either glue it and frame it in your home or redo it every year on Pet Memorial Day or your pet’s birthday.

I recently just saw an adorable post on the Internet of people posing with their animals as puppies and years later:

Of course there’s alway the option of finding a puzzle that already has an image that reminds you of your pet! We have cat puzzles, dog puzzles, and horse puzzles, among others.

  1. I wish I’d done more photos of my girls – lost my lab in May – have a few photos of her but not many and none of us together I don’t think. Every time I do a puzzle with a dog I think of her (though I think of her all the time anyways!) I rememeber one Christmas my mom had some mouse pads made for my brother and I of our beagles…had mine for a long time. A puzzle would be neat!

Ask us a question about puzzles and we'll write back!
