I visited this lovely pet memorial garden twice over my last two visits and cried both times. :redface: The stones and their inscriptions are such a poignant reminder of the special relationship people can have with their dog. :)
We have a set of photos much like those posted above. I think it is a great little part of the park for people to get another insight into its' history. :clap:
