How do we honor departed friends? A dog-shaped “calendar” marked the life of this barrel-bodied chihuahua. Jerry Coleslaw brought much joy over the years. His spirit continues on as his human friends remembered his favorite moments in a week-long count-down. It’s hard to imagine daily life without those we love around. Sometimes a simple ritual helps keep memories alive.

Open a numbered door each day to reveal hidden drawings and mark time passing.
