"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."

I would definitely recommend you to friends or family."

It was exactly what we were looking for in a nice little memorial to our much loved and missed pet, and is a touching reminder of her everytime we go outside.

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.

"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."
"We wanted to let you know how happy we are with the two river stones received last week. Our order was dealt with promptly and caringly, and the result of your workmanship is excellent. 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 doing such a great job of this wonderful memorial to my departed treasured pet. To be able to look upon this natural memorial that blends in so well with the garden and remember all of the wonderful years of love and joy that Tasha gave, will 'bring' her back to us. I will most certainly be recommending your work to others. Most of us want a fitting tribute for those pets that were such a big part of our family lives. Thanks for making that possible."
"Thank you so much for the beautiful plaque - it arrived safe and sound yesterday and we are just so thrilled with the way that it has turned out and the photo looks amazing - it just captures her cheekiness and attempt at being good. It is something that we will always treasure. Thank you once again."
"We received our beautiful sandstone plaque for my daughter's horse Toffee and we are thrilled with it. Gemma has made a special garden and the plaque will have pride of place in it. The photo looks absolutely wonderful on the plaque and we couldn't be happier.

Thank you again James, we have found a way to remember our Toffee so beautifully thanks to you and your products."

"I just wanted to say Thank You so much for the amazing work you have done on the stones and picture frame I ordered. We were devestated after loosing our 3 year old cat a couple of weeks ago, and then were dealt another blow when my partner's 14 year old dog died a week later.
