Cremated and scattered in their favorite places!

Nothing, really, I'm not sentimental about remains. I get the general cremation at my vet, where I don't get ashes back. With Elmo, they made a mistake and actually sent me the ashes, which I've never been able to figure out what to do with.

I have memories and photos, that's all I need.

Pictures and a belonging are preferable to me. We've never kept the remains of or buried any of our dogs.

This is what ours is. They get cremated with the other animals that passed that day, and they just happen to go to a pet cemetery.

I really don't know. All my past dogs have been buried. I think I might get Chloe cremated though, and spread her ashes somewhere beautiful and sunny. I couldn't keep them. For Violet, I guess it will be up to my parents. It was extremely hard on me when we buried Princess, our Silky Terrier, so I don't know if I could do that again.

We will definitely bury them on either our land, or if we don't feel we will be there for a long period of time, then cremation, eventually spreading them over where future dogs and horses are buried. We will probably do a nice photo album of their life, plus their collar with tags and just keep it in a special place.

I'm doing memorial tattoos over the expanse of my shoulders, with my horse, Romeo (who is still very much alive, but not with me), on my left shoulder; my future heart horse on my right. I'm very excited to get Romeo's done, as I saved almost all of his shoes, and am getting the horseshoe the exact size that his is. Dog paw prints with names sort of overlapping down my spine. If I ever run out of room, I will just relocate.

Well...

Kat is cremated. I will have Dekka cremated too. Both will be buried with me.

I like the idea of a life gem, but I just lost a sapphire in my ring the other day. Can you imagine losing a life gem!?

I also want a tattoo of my dogs, but not as a remembrance, because they are cute lol

Burial on family owned land, probably.

But, whatever is cheapest, honestly. I'm not a very sentimental person. I might do cremation and scatter the ashes somewhere. Ashes in a jar in my house would just creep me out.

This is the same for humans, too. To me, it is not that dog/person/cat/whatever anymore, it is a lifeless body.

The tattoo idea is interesting. I've never heard of that before.

Whatever works for you.

I will cremate and put some ashes in cremation jewelry. The rest will either be scattered somewhere special and/or put in an urn of some sort.

When Mitsu passed away suddenly we took her up to a mountian and found a beautiful tree that we would remember and we Barried her underneath it. We took the guns up as well and shot off a few rounds to get some anger and pain out. And we just had a lovely good buy service. My parents where visiting when it happened and they loved Mitsu just as much as we do so it was a comfort for them to be there.

When it comes for teagans time, we probably will do the same thing. Find some special spot.
