Pet Sympathy Card

As some of you know I also work for “Pets at Home” and go into pet owners homes to take care of their pets. I’ve been going to one place since the 26th…twice a day, with 2 dogs. And sadly a couple days ago, one of the dogs passed away during the night and I found her in her bed. It was not only sad in general, but I felt so bad that it happened on our watch and Sandra had to inform the owner before they come back (which is tonight). Macie was an older dog with several health problems, but you still don’t ever expect these things to happen.

Of course I couldn’t end the visit without leaving a sympathy card there.

I apologize for the bad quality of the photo, but I took it in a rush before I ran out the door.

I am not going to list the prizes and all since I think it might not be very respectful.

I’ll only tell you quick that I used the hearts framelits (2nd smallest one) and the small oval punch to make the paw. The square needs to be 3 1/8” to make it work.

Please let me know if you have questions regarding this card… But now go seek out your furry kids and give them some extra loving.



  1. Claudia, what a sweet card. I'm so sorry that you had to deal with this circumstance. Being pet owners and lovers we understand what it feels like and it is especially hard when it happens to you both as caregiver and owner. I'm sure your care was excellent and it was just time, unfortunately. Thanks for sharing. Gwen

  2. Oh, how sad. I hope the owners at least feel at peace that their pet passed away quietly at home and you are able offer them such sweet sympathy...may all our pets live long,happy lives.

  3. Claudia, this card is SO sweet! I am in need of a pet sympathy card for a very dear friend and really appreciated the info on how you made this. I originally saw the one you did in Pistachio Pudding on Pinterest.
