Default What are you going to do with your dog's remains?

When your dog passes away, what are you planning to do with their remains?

I know, I know... morbid thread right before the holidays... but reading the thread about the cremation jewelry and life gems made me think about it.

As of right now, my plan is to have them cremated. I want to have their ashes made into cremation jewelry so they can always be close to me.

I have no idea how I'm going to cope when that day comes. Ugh

Plant a new fruit tree in their ashes (not just ashes, of course). I'm not typically a sentimental person. But I like the idea of new growth coming out of their ashes.

That is a fantastic idea.

I almost selected tattoo but I don't want an ashes tattoo, that's uncomfortable for me.

Tat with part of the ashes, for Embyr. The rest will be cremated and put in urns.

Probably cremation. I'd consider cremation jewelry but I think I'd rather get jewelry made out of their tags. I saw the idea mentioned on Chaz a really long time ago and it's always stuck with me - it would be like having them close to me but without the weird ( weird to me!!) bone ashes factor.

That's such a good idea. I think that Sparks planted a tree for Teddy when he passed away.

Well, my horse was buried up near a bunch of trees at the barn but my instructor cut off some of her tail hair for me and got the farrier to come pull off her shoes so I could keep them. I'm planning on finding somebody to do a nice horsehair bracelet for me so that I can always have her close.

As for Moses and Cali, I'd probably get them cremated just so that if we ever moved or anything, their bodies wouldn't be left behind. But for now, I'll just pretend they're immortal. Losing Indie was, and still is hard, even after only two and a half months.. so I can't imagine losing Cali and especially Moses, since he's basically been here my whole life.

Burial or burial of cremated remains at my parent's with the other pets. My friend's puppy is buried out by the garden there too... she was living in an apartment so yeah. I buried her box of ashes by the irises while they were in bloom and scattered marigold seeds through the top layer of dirt.

All of my dogs are going to live forever, too, so hopefully I'll never have to worry about any of this!

My vet clinic owns a pet cemetery, so they get cremated and put there. My rabbit was, too.
