    Question How do you memorialize your pets?


    Decorative urns, grave markers, shadow boxes, wall plaques, jewelry . . . there are countless options for memorializing pets who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. None of them are right or wrong but I am interested in how everyone makes sure no pets are ever forgotten.

    My pets are never forgotten, my husband and I hold each one warmly in our hearts. I do have a couple of paw prints in clay and have written some memorial 'poems' for a few of my pets, also just displaying a picture or two around that house. That's about it, I've never buried them in my yard or kept any cremation ashes.

    I don't keep ashes either. I have several oil paintings of previous animals hanging up and have lots of pictures I've taken over the years.

    I have wall photo plaques for Emiily and Wilbur just because I could not have them buried at home. The text is what I would have wanted on their grave stones.

    Patricia's grave stone reads:

    Patricia
    1996-2006
    Nineteen years of love

    I created a special web page for my pet. I included pictures of her and her toys, talked about what she was like, told stories about her. I even added pictures of her resting place and a map location so she will not be forgotten. I chose to make her page private so only her family could visit her. There are lots of websites that allow you to do this. The one I found was gravelocation.com. It was free.
