Perfect Sentiments Challenge 29 - Any Occasion Sketch

This week over at The Perfect Sentiment they are letting us choose our own sentiment!

The Challenge: create a card with a sentiment for any occasion that you choose!
The Twist: use the following sketch as the basis for the design of your card. 
This worked out great for me as I'm doing a lot of thinking of my dear old doggie Hunter Blue who is going to puppy heaven this week.  I'm going to miss him so much!  I've had 2 cute quotes comfort me this week:
Lauren:  He's going to go lay by Grandma now
Billy Graham:  I believe that God WANTS me to want to go to heaven and if it takes my dog being there then I believe He will do it!
Here's Hunter - he's almost 14 years old now and I've had him since he was just 8 weeks.  We've been through a lot of life together and he has been my best friend through everything.  
Anyway, I'm just thinking about how wonderful  the critters in my life are (I have 2 other dogs at home) and what a blessing they have been to me.  I guess you could call the sentiment here "pet sympathy".
