[quote=PofiMia]When we had our house call for Iggy, my DH ran over to where the vet tech put the fur she had shaved off his leg and put it on a shelf....I wouldn't have thought of it myself - funny my DH and yours both did.
I did that with the hair that the vet shaved off Sander's leg. I don't know why. I still have it, in a little tin in my jewelry box.
Yintzy, maybe it would be good to discuss with your DH how you can memorialize Cheetah? Like, can you plant a shrub for her in the yard, or do you want to take her paw-print in plaster and keep it, or is there a really cool photo of her that you want to frame and hang ... it sounds like he is facing the fact that Cheetah herself won't be around, and that's one of the saddest aspects of the whole thing, of course.
I have pictures of Sander in just about every room, and a box on my coffee table holds his plaster paw-print, and his bandana, that no other dog can wear. (I'd have saved his collar, but Sander didn't wear a collar!) It really does help, to have those mementoes around me.
