The plaque is absoloutley beautiful and it brought a tear to our eyes knowing it was made with such love and understanding. We have placed the special plaque in a garden we created for Rocky and it looks lovely. It was a terrible loss loosing our little "Rocky Dog", he had been with us for so long and was such a big part of our lives. Rocky was my partner Trev's absoloute best mate and it was so terrible loosing him due to his illness. It is so lovely knowing we have such a beautiful plaque resting with him in his special garden.

Thank you so muchâ¦. You have made my loss a lot easier."

The craftsmanship and service provided by you exceeded my expectations and I was especially touched by the hand written note on the wrapping paper.
The plaque will be placed in our garden just as soon as the roses burst forth.
Thank you again,"
"We received the plaque yesterday and just had to send you an email to say a huge thank you.
The plaque just blew me away when I opened the package. It was so much more than what I expected.

I am definitely sending you another order very soon. I just have to have one of your creations for my home as well."

"This is the 2nd time I have purchased one of your lovely stones for friends who have sadly lost a fury family member, we have only ever received positive feedback and I think it helps so much with the grieving process. Can't wait to see the stone artwork when Bodie and Olivia Meakins receive it soon.
Thank you so much for your great work."
"We said good-bye to Elvis yesterday after 10 1/2 years...was very sudden and
our girls (4 and 7) are very sad, as are we.
I saw a sample stone in the Greencross Vet at Woolloongabba, and it stood
out as so beautiful and just the right thing for us to remember him.
"I would like to share this image of Murry's resting place so you can see
where your lovely stone ended up! We are able to find comfort and solace
when we sit with him, and family and
friends are also able to pay their respects to a beautiful little boy. It has been nearly six weeks now, and although the grief is still with us, having a "monument" for our boy helps us to
deal with the loss. He had such a profound effect on everyone who knew
him. Anyway, keep up the good work. As you say "While we can't replace the loss, our beloved pets will be
with us as long as they are remembered..." How true those words. Not
sure whether you know about a website called "rainbows bridge" or not, but I have also found this helpful, for grief support and memories. Murry is there. If you google rainbows bridge and then type in Murry Graham in the residence area, you will see more photos and memories of our furbaby.
"Right from the very first day when her 4 paws & those big floppy puppy ears came into my life she was my everything - it was completely unconditional. She was the absolute best & cramped so much into her almost 8 years off life. Fittingly, nothing less than the very best for my four legged companion as she passed on into doggy heaven and that's where you guys came in. Kimba was & will remain a very special girl; really awesome work, Kimba would be proud!!
A really big thankyou for all you help & prompt service."
"My parents have received the stone, they sent me a photo and it looks great. They are really happy with it, as am I, and it looks great next to the one we previously ordered.
Thanks again for meeting my request of a big stone, it's massive!"
"Dear James and Samantha,
Just a quick thank you for the wonderful job you did with the sandstone plaques for Jo and Jordie. It is lovely to be able to honour our beautiful border collies, to thank them for all the years of love and joy they have given us. You provide an important service to those whose animals are a real part of the family, not just pets. Your company has been a pleasure to deal with, and I will certainly spread the word."
"On the 24th October 2011, we unfortunatly lost our Fluffy daughter in a terrble accident. The hurt felt that day was undesribible. Lilli died on her 10th birthday. She was more than a pet, she was with us while building our home, she helped us welcome our kids into this world and she entertained us daily with her charisma, love and affection.
We felt buring her was so incomplete. She had so many years ahead of her. Getting her headstone and placing at the burial site made the whole family feel some comfort. The stone is the same colour of her fur and the image is so simular to our girl.
Thank you so much. Its so beautiful, and the comforting hand written words we comforting too"
"I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you all for the beautiful terracotta paver I purchased from you recently. My family and I lost our best mate- a gorgeous shetland sheepdog named Spud- and we really appreciated that we could mark his passing with such a lovely gesture.

I also hope that this plaque, which will be placed in Nan and Pops garden, brings a sense of peace, love and togetherness to those who shared Steve's life, especially his 5 children whom he left behind. They will be so proud when visiting in school holidays to see a perfect memorial garden to match their perfect father, Steve!
Thank you once again Talking Stones - a piece of Heaven on Earth xxx"

"Many thanks to the creative team at 'Talking Stones' for producing such awesome tributes, just received the large engraved sandstone plaque to commemorate our recently departed pets (lovely) - we then decided that we would like to order another two for pets that had passed away quite a few years ago. After submitting the order, we were impressed when we received the artwork with alternate suggestion for the engraving which presented so much better than my initial option - thank you for supporting your products so well. Keep up the excellent work, will be recommending to my family and friends and I'm sure that when they see them in our garden they also will want to have one (or two) in their gardens - a small price to pay for years of loyalty/devotion and unconditional love from our departed 'four legged' family members."
"I just wanted to send a heartfelt thanks to Talking Stones, we received our sandstone urn yesterday for our darling dog Kirra and it is absolutely beautiful! She was such a big beautiful dog and her urn is just so fittingly beautiful to put outside so she can stay in her favourite spot in the yard.
Dealing with you has been such a pleasure from the first phone call, through to such a prompt turnaround on the artwork. It is so lovely to deal with a company that clearly pride themselves on brilliant service and quality products. Thank you all so much for making such a terribly difficult time easier for us, we are forever grateful that she can now rest in the yard.

We move around a lot and this will enable us to take Coop with us everywhere we go.
Just thought I'd drop you a line and say a very big thank you."

We will be sure to recommend you to any other friends of ours who have the same need.

I absolutely love it! Thank you for doing such a great job of this wonderful memorial to my departed treasured pet.

While we will never forget our dear four-legged friends, the engraved stones are tasteful yet subtle memorials to them that blend in well with the garden. We have placed Jess's stone in a newly established garden bed where her ashes are buried. This was a favourite place for her to drink from the fish pond, which she often preferred to the filtered water we provided! We were not aware of anything like this being available when Rosko died, so his stone now marks where he was buried under his favourite tree.
We will certainly recommend you to other animal lovers."
"Thank you for the beautiful stones I ordered recently. All have been gratefully received by their recipients, e.g. for birthdays and new baby. A gift to be treasured for life."

I have to say that the plaque exceeded all my expectations, and I shed a few tears when I opened the package and read the words, also the "carved with love" on the wrapping was a lovely and much appreciated touch. The plaque is a fitting tribute to a greatly missed member of our family and looks lovely in the garden that Mac loved to explore.
I found your website easy to use, the "artwork for review" a great idea and your online and phone customer service highly professional and caring.
It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
All the best."

Thank you for your wonderful service."

You are so obviously passionate about what you do, and also strike the right level of sensitivity in dealing with your customers. So thank you.

"The stone we ordered for Tuffy arrived yesterday. I can't begin to tell you how happy my husband and I were with the final product. It's absolutely gorgeous and needless to say we shed a few tears of emotion opening the package. It's much more beautiful than I anticipated and we are so pleased that we found you. Our darling girl passed away 6 weeks ago and we keep her ashes in a box inside the house but we wanted to have something to mark what was her favourite spot in the garden. We will have a little ceremony on the weekend and will place the stone where we know she spent such happy times and we will always think of her when we walk past. She was originally a country girl who took to her new inside status as soon as we adopted her but she always loved the outdoors and the stone is just like her, a miracle and beauty of nature.
Thank you for the very touching heart and note on the package.
Many times in our lives we feel we are being taken advantage of when we are weak and sad but I can truly say that the service you provide is outstanding value for money and the most personalised way of remembering our pets."
"We received Pontouf's plaque today. Thankyou so very much....it's perfect. Co-incidently the delivery lady arrived just as I had finished doing our new front garden (which was a massive job).

What a rewarding job you have."

"Thank you for the beautiful job engraving our talking stone for Tilly and the very quick delivery, one week and one day after her passing.
Having the stone as a memorial to her life, gives us the peace in knowing that we did everything possible in making Tilly's life a wonderful one and the stone will now be a testament to that.
We have already recommended you to a friend who's dog is in her last days and they thought it was a wonderful idea, as there dog is much loved as well, you are right "the power of word of mouth" cannot be underestimated."
