"Departure" of my pet dog

My pet dog Tommy (Labrador Retriever), who has lived with me for 15 and a half years, is going to heaven.
It’s because loneliness increases as time goes by, and I’m so lonely and sad…
It was a very painful and sad event to see Tommy at the end. Every time I saw my favorite food dish or collar, I cried every day until my tears dried up.

Turn your happy days into positive memories!

At that time, my mother said to me, “You lived your life to the fullest, so don’t be so sad.” Turn around.
I came up with the idea of making a small box to keep my dog’s memento close to me using materials from my family’s traditional craft “Kawabe Butsudan”. I managed to commercialize it.
I think there are many people like me who are grieving over the loss of something close and dear to them.
We hope that you will be energized with the memories small box “karen” where you can keep your pet memories close to you.
