About Furever Friends

Each dog memorial is individually and thoughtfully made just for you, in loving memory of your fur-loved. My dogs are completely designed, sewn, and sculpted by me. This unique and rare type of art is referred to as “soft sculpture”. The medium used is fabric, fibers and/or plush fur instead of bronze or clay. Most often I use mohair and or alpaca. Which ever best depicts the dog breed I am making is the medium I use.
The rest of the detail in my dogs come from creative and artistic passion that emanates from my heart, and true love for dogs.

A tangible remembrance of your four-legged family member. It may be a recent loss or maybe one lost long ago in time, but still so near to the heart.
My dog memorials, and pet memorials are meant to be a loving, tangible remembrance to honor your fur-loved.

It began with teddy bears. A short time after my mom died from breast cancer I wanted a teddy bear from her woolly coat. It was truly a challenge to make because I was born without a right hand and forearm. But I persevered through and made my mama's bear. Soon after I began making more teddy bears and my teddy bears began looking like dogs, and that's when I knew what else I needed to do. My dogs have always been my closest family and the Love of my life and I think it was just a natural transition.
