Custom Memorial Dog Themed Jewelry

image002On May 20, 2006 we were at a “collie” party with a bunch of friends from Houston Collie Rescue and another couple had picked Abby up from a shelter in Houston and brought her to the party. She was about a year old. We ended up bringing her home with us to “foster”. At that time, her name was Honeysuckle. Jeanne couldn’t remember that name and kept calling her Buttercup. Once we got home, it didn’t take long for us to realize that she was going to be a permanent fixture in our lives. Since we didn’t like Buttercup, we decided to change her name to Abigail and since we live in east Texas, everyone has several names for Mom to use when she’s mad, so we named her Honeysuckle Buttercup Abigail Rose.

Abby lived with us through many changes in our “family” of dogs. She was always the “Mom” and bossed the others around making sure everyone knew she was the alpha in charge.

We lost Abby on September 25th 2017. Since she was the last collie in our pack we felt a whole in our hearts and started looking for another collie to fill our home.

As fate would have it, there was another collie in the system with Houston Collie Rescue that was going through heartworm treatment. Once the treatment ended, we brought her to our home for a “meet-n-greet” with the other guys. She was greeted with warm nuzzles and sniffs from everyone and we new immediately that this was a forever visit. This was November 11, 2017 – Veterans Day.

Now this new girl came in with the name of Lady but we thought that wasn’t a good name for a majestic rough collie so we decided to change it to Liberty in honor of Veterans and call her Libby. Of course in keeping with the east Texas ways she needed a another name so we named her Lady Liberty Rose.

The necklace you made for Jeanne represents this continued love we have for Abby and Libby with the representation of a yellow rose of Texas.

Thanks again for this wonderful gift.

“Thanksgiving” an American Tradition

imageMost families in America will be soon celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. When I think of Thanksgiving, I think a lot about food (lol), football, hickory nut shells scattered on my deck , the annual Macy’s Day Parade, the National Dog Show in Philly, and giving thanks to my dogs and family.
Turkey has always been a traditional food for my family; however, there was a time, when I was young, that we also added Pheasant to the Thanksgiving dinner table. Years ago, it was a tradition for the men of my family to hunt on Thanksgiving. I remember as a child we would travel to Kentucky to spend two or three days with our kinfolk. My Dad was not an avid hunter by nature, but I do remember him wrapping himself up in stiff khaki colored outdoor wear and I remember that his coat showed a hint of fluorescent orange around its pockets and collar. I remember his hunting boots, his long nosed shotgun, and his bright orange hat. My Dad and Grandfather would head out the door early in the morning, the day before Thanksgiving, and return that afternoon with a fowl or two for our annual family Thanksgiving feast. On occasion, my Father and Grandfather would take along Movin’ Jane or John to help flush out the birds. Movin’ Jane was a retriever; not sure about  John and his ancestry.  John was a mutt but played along as if he was a purebred birddog.
Thanksgiving is also a time to sit back with the pooches to watch NBC’s televised National Dog Show, hosted by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia. One of my favorite shows for me to watch and participate in as a vendor. The show is held in The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oakes, PA every November. Top dogs from all over the United States will be showing – and I would like to add that the spectators not only enjoy watching the beautiful dogs, but also enjoy shopping for the holiday at Lisa Welch Designs! This show gives me the opportunity to showcase my fine collection of dog and horse themed jewelry as well to see and visit with special customers during the holiday season.
Lisa Welch Designs would like to send a special greeting during this Thanksgiving time to express
to you, our sincere appreciation for your confidence and loyalty. We are deeply thankful and
extend to you and your family our best wishes for a happy and healthy Thanksgiving Day.
