I've actually tried to find my own Rowdy to buy. I'm still hunting for one too. I want to bring it home and surprise my mom with it by putting it in her bed. I told her I was going to get one and she told me that's a stupid idea and really weird. I think a dead dog would be fun to have around (Though I do draw the line at bathing with it and trimming it's butt hairs ) so long as I didn't know him in his previous life.

Though as far as MY dog goes, I could never stuff him. That's too weird. I'm going to have him cremated when he goes.

It would disturb me, but the dog is gone and feels nothing anymore, so if it helps an individual to have it done, I see nothing wrong with it.

My animals (or a piece of them - I doubt I will be able to afford cremation for Tristan, but I'll have a lock of his hair) will all be cremated, and their ashes combined with mine when I am gone.

WOW! I am TOTALLY shocked there isn't one person who would do it!

I mean this is CHAZ.........there's ALWAYS at least one person going against the crowd!

But I agree, if it's an animal I do not know, I think it wouldn't bother me in the least...........one you've spent years with, played with, groomed in life? No, I don't think I'd want to look at her stiff and lifeless body day in and day out.

My grandmother had her favorite cat taxidermied (she was a Persian cat breeder) and kept it under the SINK. I stumbled across it when I was 4 years old, and I still have problems shaking it from my memory. lol.

Poor Jessie...lol..that would have been a fright!

I could never do it, it would be creepy plus it would hurt too much too see them all the time. It would be like doing the same thing to a human person that I love.

And I thought of Rowdy too when I first read this thread. lol The one where JD was in the bath with him, too be specific.

Hey, you know my husband says he is going to do that to me! No, not bath with me..........have me stuffed and keep me at home!

Probably be the only time in our marriage I'm quiet and reserved, plus, he'll always have the last word!
