We recently and unexpectantly lost one of three "Goldens", because of what my wife and I think was a bad heartworn, flea, and tick medication. This really hit close to home because I was closest to this one, Boomer, always the one making trouble, but the first one to get "mommy slippies" from her closet in the winter when her feet were cold, or to bring me a "cold one" when I was in my chair. Okay, I know enough of the mushy stuff and to the "Help" wanted stuff. So I want to make a memorial plaque for the area in which his ashes will be buried. I have a pic and will try to crop the background out of it. What I was wondering is if I update my software to the newest, could someone that has the new 2D/3D, which I can't afford right now, make the pic into something that I could carve for this project? I have attached the pic unedited just wondering about this..

P.S. Again I will edit the pic when I get a chance, I just need to know if this is doable before I go through the hassle.

that is doable and I will try to make a go of it tonight if I can. Don't worry about cropping, it's a pretty insignificant part of the process, but if you could, email me the largest pic you have to the email I'll send you in a PM

I'm sorry for your loss,

Very pretty dog. I am sorry for your loss Gary, I sure he was just one of the family. Lawrence will do a awesome job for you.

So sorry for your loss. I too have also lost a number of goldens over the last few years.
Never to be replaced in my heart. As to the medication, I too had a dog get a bad reaction
from a flea and tick medication. We held and loved him all night, until we could get him
to a vet. Many days ( and dollars ) later we have a healthy dog again.
My condolences for your loss.

No problem Gary, I hope you had fun with your family and I'll try and make that pattern this weekend (we're out tonight)

I would like to thank Lawrence, for all his help in this memorial for Boomer. I completed it yesterday, and pretty happy with the outcome. Again, Lawrence- Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

Nice team work. I'm glad there are some many nice people on this forum helping each other.

I'm glad I could do my small part and again, that paint job is wonderful.

Sorry again for your loss - it certainly seems that Boomer was well loved and will be missed.

Certainly the other beings we share our home and lives with also share a part of our hearts. A lost is felt just the same.
The memorial is beautiful. Great work all around.

Amazing art work. I did not think it probable to so closely resemble the original in a carving. The paint work I mean.
