View Full Version : Calendar cover 2010

28th October 2009, 06:53 PM
For those who maybe do not know, the front cover of the calendar has always featured at least one of the Cavaliers on the board who has passed away over the previous year.

This year we very sadly had ten Cavaliers to include.

My husband has had a busy day producing this - we hope you like it:

Nicki that is so beautiful, what a wonderful tribute to the dogs that have gone to the bridge.
I am just kicking myself I did not make it in time to post picture of our little Cassie. I can stick a little one on of her when I receive the calendar.
Hubby has done a lovely job, tell him thankyou.

Thank you everyone - so glad that you all like the cover.

Nanette, I'm so sorry Cassie is not included. I'm sure she could be put on next year's cover...

We will think of Cassie too.

For those who don't know the story, this is the reason for the rainbow:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

thats is lovely, such a fitting tribute

Nicki, sorry can you change Razzle to le. I must have typed it wrong when sending the e mail/post. I blame the pregnancy!!

This has made quite a bit of extra work, but it has now been corrected Sam - as we wanted it to be perfect. It will be on a site viewed by the the general public this year, so needed to look professional.

Please, please in future can people double check what they post...we picked up the names from the original posts, so went with that spelling.

Many hours of work go into creating these calendars, and episodes like this make it even harder...

Karlin is currently finishing off the calendar and it should be available shortly.

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments - we wanted something special to honour all our beloved companions.

When I post that they are on the Cafepress site.

because I need to do two calendars on two international sites this involves uploading pictures twice and making FOUR calendars, folks... just don't have the time but will try to finish this weekend.

What is the difference between the two calendars?
How do I tell the difference?
