That said, that's what my parents chose to do with their last dog. My last dog (childhood dog) is buried in the back garden.

I had my old Doberman cremated and I have his ashes in a wooden box. I also have his main collar with his tags in a shadow box, along with a picture. I'd like to do something with his ashes rather than just keep them, but I haven't decided what yet.

I'm sure I'll get Rumor cremated as well, but I'd like to actually do something with the ashes. I haven't really thought much about it. She has to live forever.

Yah, I think it's the vet owner of the clinic that owns the cemetery. I've never seen it myself, its just out of town, but I think its technically just a field they get spread over.

I allowed Argon's remains to be taken for mass cremation.

When my precious blue Puss persian died, I did have thoughts of having him taxidermied, with a pair of gargoyle wings mounted on the back, and bringing him out for Halloween to scare kids with. He was such an A$$ cat that it's exactly what he would have wanted.

Goodness, I was just discussing this with my parents two days ago.

I'm just about to move 1100km away from home and I'm taking the two dogs. My own girl, Abby and the 'family' dog, Grace. We've decided not to separate them because they are so good for each other. Abby keeps Grace young and active and Grace really helps Abby's frame of mind. We just had to decide who the dogs were coming to live with. And it's turned out to be me, which I am very grateful and excited for. This could change if they don't transition well or mum and dad change their mind down the track, but that's the plan so far.

What to do with their remains came up because we are going to be living so far away and I'd really like them to 'come home' to their final resting place at my parents'. They have lived there all their lives. And all my past pets - cats, dogs, chooks and birds - rest there. So it'll be cremation and urn until I can travel down and then the ashes will be put in the backyard somewhere. Our other dogs have trees planted as well, so I imagine the same for these two.

In the past we have buried dogs at home. Now we are moving and I have to say it's going to be weird leaving them.

In the future I would do burial at home if we were very settled and in love with our home with no plans to move. Or I would do cremation and have the ashes made into jewelry.

Gipsy was solo-cremated and buried in our yard in a place where she had the same view as when she looked out the window to watch with neighbourhood.

Solo-cremation. Tattoo minus the ashes.

I feel like I'd want to save everything, and have the option of having the jewelry or urn, or whatever I want. I wouldn't want to bury him. But I do want his ashes and maybe some of his fur.

Other animals/pets are buried in my mom's backyard.
