And because of that, you should create something to remember your best friend or gift to a loved one who lost their faithful fur friend. Here are some ideas how to capture the pets we lost and celebrate their memory forever.  



A Trip Down Memory Lane 


The best way to make sure that you have all your treasured memories in one place is by pulling all the photos you have of and together with your beloved pet and putting them nicely in a photo album, created especially for the occasion. Use My Photo PETS to continue your holiday tradition before Christmas- create new holiday pictures of them to add to this year's album to remember year after year.  



There Is No Place Like Home 


A home is just a house without your best friend in it. Let the memories help you feel as if nothing has ever changed by making a beautiful keychain holder with an image of your late fur baby. Every time you enter your home you are sure to remember all the great memories you have created through the years. Use My Photo PETS and create a beautiful keychain holder and cherish your beloved fur friend forever
