Maka joined our family when she was an 8-week old puppy. As newlyweds, we doted on Maka and considered her our "baby". Maka rode "shotgun" in my husband's work truck, and was always the center of attention any time they stopped to stretch their legs. When our son was born, Maka welcomed him into the family and considered him her baby too! The two were inseparable, and their bond was delightful to watch. As our son learned to walk, Maka was by his side every step, often losing handfuls of fur as he would stumble and fall. She never minded, and the two soon went on adventures together running side-by-side, Sadly, Maka crossed the Rainbow Bridge when our son was about 6 years old. We were all devastated by her loss, but not as much as our son. For years, he couldn't walk past her urn in the living room without making a comment about how much he missed her, regardless of the fact that we had a houseful of dogs. His bond with Maka was so strong, he just couldn't let go of the pain of losing her... that is, until I created BioUrn!
In 2013, I brought BioUrn to market as a pet memorial, and we filmed the preparation and planting of our first BioUrn using Maka's ashes. I knew I had a unique & extraordinary product, but what I didn't realize was the impact BioUrn had on children who were grieving the loss of their family pet. Once Maka's BioUrn began to sprout a seedling, our son would make a direct route to her tree, fussing over it and noting its growth with a big smile on his face. What was once a sad, mournful statement about missing her became a joyful acknowledgement of her growing presence in our garden and even more important was the renewed joy in our hearts.
