How To Make A Unique & Long-Lasting Dog Memorial As A Tribute To Your Dog

dog-memorial-by-svadilfari.jpg Most people who have dogs consider their dog part of the family.  This is especially true if you don’t have kids.  I know that my husband and I consider both of our dogs (and our 2 cats!) to be our kids. 

So what do you do with your pet after he has passed away?  You probably want to give him the same dignity and respect that you would give a family member.  (I know we did.)

A pet memorial is a great way to memorialize your dog after he has passed on. 

It’s completely up to you how you want to memorialize your beloved dog:

  • You could make your own unique marker or storage box for mementos of your dog.
  • Or, you could buy a professional dog memorial that will serve as a reminder of your time with your dog for years to come.

Here are some ideas for creating a unique and long-lasting dog memorial for your pet…

How We Made A Pet Memorial

When we had to put our cat down, it was something that my husband and I had a hard time with. 

The staff members are our local vet sent us the Rainbow Bridge poem.  They also gave us many options on what to do with our beloved cat. 

The first was for us to bring him home and bury him.  We chose to have him cremated.  Then we brought his ashes home in an urn. 

As a constant reminder of his time with us, we placed the urn on a shelf.  His collar is around his urn, along with his favorite toy.  We also have a small box with a locket of his fur and a couple of whiskers we found after he passed.  That is how we chose to memorialize our pet after his death.


Preparing For Your Dog’s Last Days

If your beloved pet has not passed on yet but you know that your time together is short, your best course of action at this point is to prepare yourself for that fateful day.

It’s never easy, but if your dog has been sick for some time and/or is in lots of pain, then now is the time to prepare for the death of a pet. Only you will know when the time is right for this act of kindness.
