B.C. dog lovers create Christmas memorial

Dog lovers in North Vancouver, B.C., have created a memorial to remember the pets who are no longer with them this holiday season.

The memorial at Mosquito Creek Park started with just a trinket or two strung up on trees along the popular walkway.

But now, trees along much of the route are decorated with special ornaments in memory of family dogs who have passed away.
