Creating Howlin' Good Memories!

In 2010, as the “mom” to five dogs and a dog trainer for over 15 years, when my youngest was diagnosed with bone cancer in April 2010 it was a very sad and unexpected diagnosis. Not only was she one of the dogs I used in my training business, but Tellico was a therapy dog and worked hard to dispel myths about the Rottweiler breed. A friend had suggested that I do something to honor her and create a keepsake so I started a search online for something unique.

I found that a few people had created pendants of pawprints and noseprints and thought it was a great idea. So I researched jewelry making and taught myself how to make the molds of the nose and turn it into a precious metal pendant. Luckily I had five dogs to practice with! Within a few months, word had spread and now I have a small business called Metropawlitan Art.

Unfortunately, my Tellico passed away four months after her diagnosis but that was only the beginning of our heartbreak. We ended up losing all five of our elderly dogs within 18 months from August 2010 to February 2012 . I am comforted to have been able to create their noseprint jewelry before they passed and wanted to be able to do the same others. It is so cathartic for me personally to do for other people what has brought me so much comfort in my own dogs’ passings.

We now have a Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Hannah Boden and an adopted Rottweiler named Barrett. I look forward to creating howlin' good memories for you!
