Laying Your Companion To Rest

Losing your beloved companion is a very emotional and painful experience and one that all loving pet owners sadly endure. After the initial grief has subsided, we begin to ask ourselves,”What do we do now?”
Some families chose to keep their pets cremains in an urn in their home. However, if your pet loved the outdoors, there are many ways to place the cremains on, in or near the earth.
Garden Of Remembrance
A beautiful flower garden and it’s vibrant colors can draw you to a place where your pet’s cremains have been buried. A rock or statue honoring your pet could be incorporated into this area.
Plant A Tree
Incorporate your pet’s cremains in a hole dug to plant a new tree. Or you may chose to buy an EterniTree Biodegradable Urn that incorporates the cremains with seeds that will grow into a living, thriving tree. Adding a tree to the earth in your pet’s memory is truly a “green” memorial to honor your precious pet.
Scatter The Cremains
Scattering cremains in their favorite spot can be an event as well as a memorial. Going to a nature trail they enjoyed hiking, a lake where they loved to swim, or a park where they loved to run and play fetch gives you a special time to say goodbye.
The bond you share with your pet while they are in this life will help you decide where they should rest. Take the time to think through all of your alternatives to find the perfect method that gives you peace and comfort and honors their memory.
