The Funeral

At the request of grandma, I'm going to let you guys know about the events of two weeks ago. Sorry it's so late!

It was a sad day in the Scott Everson family. We lost our beloved (and kinda hated) Snickers. We've had her for 14 1/2 years and she's been a great little beagle. But we were beginning to think we'd always have her. She got caught by her collar under a fence and she choked. Poor little thing. But we still have her daughter, Emma. That one will be here forever. She's always doing the dumbest stuff and she always walks away from it.

But anyways, we had a service for her on Sunday evening.

Here is where she was buried. Isn't it a beautiful spot? I want to be buried there. Its the empty lot next door to my parents. I asked if it was ok to use and their response was "well its on a fault line so it can never be developed." Which brought me to my next question "what happens if there is an earthquake and a dog coffin surfaces" but they didn't seem to be too concerned. I guess if there is an earthquake from that fault line the dog coffin will probably be the last of our concerns. My parents house will come rushing down the valley.

Here is the coffin. Or casket should I say? My dad built it and then glued down the top and used his nail gun on it in case of coyotes. He is considering leaving his job to pursue a career in pet casket construction. My mom made a little pink blanket and we decided to leave this homemade bone for her.

Eddie wished he could play "Amazing Grace" on the bagpipes so he could be the lone musician in the distance.
