Monument:

  1. A statue, building, or other structure erected to commemorate a notable person or event.
  2. A statue or other structure placed over a grave in memory of the dead.
  3. A building, structure, or site that is of historical importance or interest.
  4. An enduring and memorable example of something.

Despite the various definitions, the word “monument” makes us think of lofty statues and grand architecture. This little monument is something quite different. No crowds flock to admire its gravitas or muse on its symbolism and place in history. This monument – placed recently – engendersΒ raw feelings about a tiny dog that passed in and out of our lives, so quietly and magically. It’s a tribute to Daisy:

Linking up today with Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument. Do you have a favourite monument? Is it grand or modest?

  1. Thanks for that beautiful comment, Pinky. My daughter took the photo of Daisy smiling about a month before she died…it’s how we remember her. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh, bless. It’s so true they say that when losing a family pet you lose a family member. A beautiful monument. May you always keep Daisy close to your hearts x
