It’s difficult to go down a darker path with this article. But it’s something we can’t shy away from – we’ll all have to deal with it at some point.
One of the hardest things we ever have to do is say goodbye to our beloved best friend. It’s something that every dog owner will have to experience – but it’s something we understandably don’t bare to think about until the time comes.
It’s so important to go through the process of grieving at this time. To think of the wonderful times and memories your pal had with you. These are things that will stay in your heart forever.
But there are also the practical matters to consider: how and where will you honor and remember your precious canine friend?
Many people choose a site in the backyard as a memorial. This is not always possible, if for example you don’t own your own property or if you live in an apartment.
More and more people, for different reasons, are choosing cremation which is a service offered by most vets through partnerships with pet funeral companies. Cremating your dog allows you to carry him or her with you physically for the rest of your life, in any manner that you choose.
