    One reason why I'm torn between keeping and scattering is because I can't think of a single place I would want to scatter his ashes. Though we've only had him for 8 months, so hopefully we'll be able to make a few more memories to help me decide If he were to die tomorrow, though, I'd probably hold onto his ashes until I could find a place I deem suitable to scatter them.

    The main reason why I don't like the idea of holding onto ashes forever, though is because I plan on having at least one dog for the rest of my life, preferably multiple at once. So.. if you think about it, that would be a lot of little urns, lol! But the thought of keeping my FIRST dog's ashes (Basil's) has crossed my mind.

    Also, I plan on being cremated myself, though I haven't decided where I want to be scattered yet, either, lol!

    No. Seeing the body with no life in it would be all too vivid a reminder that the pet is dead.

    No, I would not. But I WOULD clone my dog if I had the money. My Whippet, for sure I would clone him. No question.

    I won't bury a dog. I can never be sure I won't move away or whatever. But ashes I can take anywhere. And I want all my dogs buried with me.

    No. But I did consider having a shawl made out of my Sheltie's fur. Didn/t pan out. We scattered her ashes in our new backyard because she didn't get to make the move with us.

    Sounds like my sis, she wants to be cremated herself as well. Why not have your ashes scattered nearby your family?

    I've no idea, secretly I go to the grave site dig little hole and take couple or/and whole bag if you want in the hole then fill it up!

    If you have a Will you can add it onto if one of one happen to die after you be sure to have ashes next to their plot

    It is in my will that I want my dogs ashes dropped into my casket. That or I want to be cremated and have them all scattered together over the Blue Ridge Mountains. I guess I don't care, since I'll be dead, and I don't believe in any kind of afterlife.

    No, I couldn't bear it. All of us will be cremated, our ashes scattered and blown by the wind, together forever as one.

    I remember seeing Trigger, the horse belonging to Roy Rogers. It creeped me out something awful. It just felt so wrong (I LOVED that horse as a kid, which is why I always watched his shows!).

    Even so, to each his own. If doing so helps someone, by all means have it done.

    That's kind of what I've been thinking. Koty's my first and thus 'special' in that way. Not that all my dogs won't be special, but I'm sure you understand lol. I'm not sure though...I'm hoping it's still a good ways off

    As for stuffing, no that wouldn't be my cup of tea. I don't have a problem with taxidermy but knowing all it entails, I think I'd feel a little weird putting my pet (even just the body) through that. It would be a bit too 'personal' I think.

    My dogs will be buried, and have beautiful plants grown over them.

    Dancer was the first dog I had lost & when we had to have her PTS, it was devastating, I wasn't familiar with the whole process - nothing. I wanted her cremated, but didn't want to keep her ashes as I was afraid what might become of them in our some times hectic & crazy home - I just didn't want that responsibility. BUT it turns out my son DID pay for & keep her ashes.
    After given time to think about it, I'm so glad my son did that. I now have Dancer & Georgies ashes in urns & am going to bury them in my back yard. I know I will probably one day sell this home, but both of those dogs grew up in this back yard, they played together, ran, LOVED their back yard & that's where I figure is the best place for them to be - together in their back yard.

    No, I would never never stuff any of my pets.

    I personally feel, the reason people do not have there loved ones stuffed like 308's mother is total disrespect for the diseased, like maybe using her for a coat rack, towl holder, etc.

    This was supposed to be serious, but after reading what I just said, I cannot stop laughing............I'm outa here
