Default Need input on dog burial vs cremation ASAP!!

Ok I just had a local TV news person come in and told me they had just finished up an interview with a company who is making caskets for pet burials and how it's becoming a million dollar industry, people paying large $ to bury their pets, etc... So she came in asking me my view. I told her I felt and had more inquiries about urns for cremations. That a lot of people want to keep their furry family members with them during the various moves, etc...

So she put me on the spot and said GREAT! I'll go get a camera crew and we'll be right back! Well darn! I'm not so sure I want to say that on camera when another local business is trying to sell caskets.

So what is your all take on this? Would you rather buy a casket and bury a furry family member or cremation with an urn you keep with you?

Hurry!! She'll be back soon!!

I would rather do cremation for the reason you mentioned....always being able to have the urn wherever I go. I use to live out on Long Beach, LI and buried my dog there at a pet cemetary and now I miss her because I don't get to go there that much. My last pooch I cremated to always have her near me. Hope it helps in your interview.....Good luck!!

I prefer cremation. I like having my deceased fluffs with me, especially if I ever had to move away from the area.

I had 2 pets creamated a year ago and so thankful now that I opted for that because we are now building a new house and if I had buried them, I really don't think I could have left them behind

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Definitely cremation. There are beautiful urns that you can find now or some might scatter the ashes of their beloved pets. I think that you mentioning cremation isn't going against another local business -- it's giving people an option. And face it, many cannot afford a casket and perpetual (no pun intended) cemetery fees. This is something faced by loved ones who are human - some go for burial, some go for cremation.

I'm a fan of cremation too -- but you might mention that whether or not a pet owner buries their pet or cremates and keeps the ashes in an urn, it is just another example of how much a part of the family our pets are and how important they are to the family. And that the number of requests that you get for urns just proves how much the owners care and love their pets.

That way you won't be stepping on the casket company's toes.

Cremation. I rent, and I've read about pet cemeteries going out of business so pets have to be moved, and I suspect the people who now live in my childhood home had to distub a little dog's grave when they re-landscaped or put in the pool I can see on google maps! So I have little boxes of some little doggies remains, in a cabinet drawer with some other keepsakes of them.
