Has anyone done a marker or memorial for a pet?
We lost a beloved Boston Terrier and have him at rest in the xeriscape garden. In the past, we have simply put in a planting where we laid pets, but our son would like to have a momorial or marker for the dog he grew up with. Ol' Bugs is near a pergola we are updating. I thought I might stack a rock onto a step stone or carve his name into a step stone. I originally thought I might be able to carve his name in the rock, but I don't think I have the skill. Pictured is my "practice" B on a scrap from a concrete paver and the some of the stones I have now. I can buy some new material, but we will not put much money into this. I have a 10 inch by 12 inch by about 7 inch high stone. I have several 8 x 16 pavers, and one 12 x 12. I have a few black granite tiles, but I'm sure that I would break them if I try to use the air-hammer on them. Any other suggestions for carving or etching? I would like it to be a cheerful reminder of the fellow in the tuxedo.
