Story: Anyone who has ever experienced the loss of a pet knows the pervasive sense of grief that never fully goes away. While treasured pets may leave a hole in our hearts, they no longer have to leave a hole in our lives. A new St. Charles Dog Memorial Sculpture is now located in Delnor Woods Park, along Route 25 east of Fulton Avenue. Bring an ID tag memorializing your beloved pet to place on the sculpture for free, and help grow his coat of many colors as this unique interactive sculpture becomes a destination year ’round for healing and celebrating the role pets play in our lives.
