We do cremation,I could bear to leave my fluffs behind and have their remains disturbed.. We had three buried in our yard , and it sounds nuts,but when we put the house up for sale, we had them exumed and cremated,I just couldn't bear to leave them. I cried the whole time thinking about disturbing them and having them in the cold dark ground,so weird as it seems, it was a relief to have them inside a warm house and going with us when we move.
We took them with us when we moved to Florida, then back again (for family) and think if we hadn't cremated,who know what would have happened to them...

Make sure to put a provision in your will an let people know about their cremains so they can go with you,when you go...

I wouldn't feel bad about recommending cremation over burial,it's more practical but there will be those who will do burial and that's ok too. It's important to have options.

We just had to put our beloved Golden Retriever to sleep, after over 13 years loving him.

We cremated him....and I have his remains in a box in my room. I am not sure what I want to do with some of his remains yet....it was too soon when summer was ending to decide. We will most likely spread some on his favorite spots in our yard etc. I also would like to get a very very small tattoo of a paw print, and I have heard you can use some of the remains in the ink, so your furry baby is always "with you"

Michelle, that doesnt sound weird at all. We all have to do what helps us heal. I get it.....when I am having a bad moment, missing my big bear, I go and get his remains (in a box) and just hold them and cry. I know his spirit is always with me.....but it helps to know "he" is near me at all times. I miss my dog so much. I am a stay at home mom, and he was always with me, all day long. My protector, my friend. I cried more after his passing, than I did with some people in my life.....just the way it is.

EEE GADS I HATED THAT!!! I thought there was nothing I hated more than having my picture taken. Well I was wrong. Knowing you are being video recorded is beyond horrific!!! So glad I wore a high necked shirt so my nervous red blotches that always pop up on my chest and neck were hidden. And I didn't wash my hair today!! I think I need a glass of wine.

Thanks everyone for your replies. Just wanted to make sure I was on track with the general consensus. The consensus of crazy dog people.

I vote for creamation. I do know that caskets are getting to be the new next thing, but depending on where you live certain by-laws prohibit the burial of a pet in a back yard. Creamating you can keep the ashes or if someone wishes could bury that in the backyard with a tree on top! it all comes down to the needs and wants of the customer and what their beliefs are.

LOL, and I missed all this drama! I didn't wash my hair today either, I thought who am I going to bump into today...famous last words. if in doubt wash your hair.

btw, I say cremation too only because there's no special place to bury a pet here. And the casket place may get the idea to make little urns as well if they see the video.

so how do we get to see his video???? and the Oscar goes to.......

I prefer cremation, but I don't like keeping the ashes. If I did get the ashes back, I would probably sprinkle them somewhere (illegal, I know! At least for people) or bury the urn somewhere. I just don't like the idea of keeping them on a mantle or something. It really creeps me out seeing the folks that have a taxidermy pet and it makes me worry about their sanity, like they can't move on and let go.
