Keeping you together is what sets us apart. No one likes to be alone when sick or injured. Charlie. The shy and fearful dog who was rescued from a Walmart parking lot in Coos Bay became a Delta Society therapy dog who visited kids and seniors. “He was like my child,” Paschall said. “I find people are like it’s been a few days suck it up. It’s nice to be around people who don’t judge you and understand.” Nancy Whitmore brought her daughter, Lucy, and niece, Sawyer, to make ornaments after their long-haired Dachshund Willie passed away. She heard about the workshop from the hospital and thought it would be sweet to do something cathartic with the kids. “It was cool,” Lucy Sennett said. “I mean I wouldn’t have done this otherwise. So having the chance to make something I can have forever, it’s a cute little memory.” After the workshop is over, the glass projects are carefully transported to Traisman’s home. They’re fired in the kiln and the ashes are permanently fused between layers of glass. Participants can then pick up their art and take home a tangible memory of their beloved pet they can cherish. “Grief is a normal response to the loss of a loved one,” Traisman said. I see people grow after their loss a life ends. They may even change careers. It’s cool to see people heal.”
