We have buried every pet we lost on the farm.
Most were near the corncrib

Last dog was where she chose to lay down and watch for groundhogs the last time.

My three Newfies are in a row in a small stonewalled in area in my woods. I used my backhoe and gave then proper 6' deep holes. It hurts so much to lose them, that I haven't been able to get another dog for 8 years now. Good Luck, Rick

We have 3 cats and a dog buried in the back yard.

 

I commented to my wife one day that we had "been hard" on the cats because we had 3 die.

She said, "they were all used cats to begin with"!

2 came from the shelter and one from a friend.

My parents pay to have their pets cremated and put into oak urns. They then sit them on shelves. They want the animals buried with them.

My Mothers wish was that her ashes be scattered in a Rose garden - so I made this Arbor surrounded by climbing Rose Bushes

My Mom put my sisters ashes under a 'Christmas' Tree in the front yard . I decorate it every year for her . This doesn't bother me at all.

My beloved Chilidog and MyGirlPepper will have a place here in my yard .

I will make a nice place for them beside each other as they have lived their lives together .

In a hole in backyard!  Done!  Bigger dogs need quite a big hole, sometimes hard to do around my place, specially in early spring when ground was still kinda hard from winter.   I went about 3ft for the big dog,  on side of lawn shed, no markings, now flower garden. Three cats, one there and other two kinda under the Lilac bush in backyard. Not so deep for those, wife and g-kids put a board or flowers there for a little while, then we FORGET they are there and be done!  No Crying here if you didn't get that.  Always have said....."wonder if we could make a meal out of them"?   Then, passed! :smilewink:

I lost my 16 1/2 old dachshund, Gretchen last June. I had her cremated at a cost of $180. A small price to pay for all the pleasure she gave me. I had the vet. take care of her, so I'm sure they added some to the cost. They put her ashes is a very nice cedar chest. I only plan on staying here for another 4 years, so I just couldn't leave her here.

Tuesday I had to put my 15yr old American bulldog down. He was my best friend. It was the hardest thing I every had to do. We buried him down by the pond. One of his favorite spots. Jim

One of the hardest things in life is to lose a loved pet, they are truly a family member . I've had cats all my life I miss my buddy ACE a blackbombay he was the most amazing cat I ever owned, you never knew what he was going to do , he would jump into your arms or run right up you. One of his favorite things to do was sit atop the fridge and wait for someone to pass by , he would give you a few lightening fast smacks to the back of your head, little prick I loved him so.

We've cremated all of our pets, Each has a picture box with the ashes inside and a favorite toy on top. The wife has them arranged in her china cabinet. There have been a few so the cabinet is getting a bit full.
