Do you, or have you ever had a pet that you have loved as much as family? I remember when I was younger we always had pets. One of the hardest things that I ever had to end was when one of them had passed away. For our family, we did not have any type of big ceremony when they passed away; we typically buried the animal in our backyard with a homemade cross. This was our way of honoring our pet and it was a means for us to remember them. I remember once, my grandmother had a dog that she loved a great deal. When he passed away, she had him cremated and then buried in a special cemetery for pets.
Special Pet Jewelry and Urns
In recent years, I have discovered that there are other, special ways for people to honor their pets. In today's society, there are a long line of pet urns and jewelry that are on the market. These have been specially created for the storage of the remnants of beloved pets that have passed away. The great thing about many of these different urns is that they come available in a broad range of sizes, shapes, and designs. These urns come with accented paw prints or in simple and elegant designs. One of the great things about these urns is that some of them come in shapes, such as hearts, that will make the placement of them on a shelf or a mantle appear as nothing more than just another tchotchke. Other pieces, with more elaborate designs, are very symbolic of the dog or cat that has passed away.
If you are like my family and me and love your pets, when the time comes for them to pass away it can be a very difficult situation to deal with for your family. You are stuck with the grief of losing a pet that was more like a family member. Depending on your family, and how you want to remember your pets, there are a number of different things that you can do. You can do as my family and I did, and bury your pets in the backyard, or have them entombed at a pet cemetery. If you would rather have a more physical reminder of your pet, then you can look into purchasing a pet urn. There is also the option to get memorial jewelry for your pet, or get pet scattering urns so you can scatter the ashes of your beloved pet in a location that you loved to take them.
