PostSubject: Bit of a morbid one (sorry)   Wed 07 Nov 2012, 12:54 am

So, after a weekend feeing poorly my other half has been doing all the dogs walks, because Max, our elderly dobermann can't walk far we've spent a fair bit of time having cuddles on the sofa. It hit me he is an old man and his health in the past year has certainly taken a decline.

I was thinking about the inevitable.

Chris has always said he wants Max's ashes, i don't feel ready for this talk with my vet just yet, so thought i'd ask on here first. When the time comes and we have him cremated, i know you pay for the ashes and stuff, i've seen people have some beautiful urn/box type things, do the vet do these or would i have to get an outside company?

Sorry for the morbid question, i'm so clueless with stuff like this never having had a pet thats died, other than rodents which we buried in the garden.

Hi Saz

The vets will organise it all for you when the time comes. It can be very expensive though Saz and there are a couple of options when the time comes so you may want to ask them to write it down so you can do away and think about it.

We had our cat cremated Saz, even though it was expensive it was worth it as we had a lovely oak casket to put her in with her name engraved on a plate on the top.
It was done through an external company through our vets and they were very good tbh, does help a bit when the inevitable happens group hug

Yes your vet will help with that. As others have said it is expensive but so worth it. Ellis's ashes now live on my bedroom window ledge and are in the shape of a lovely wicker envelope with a beautiful purple ribbon round them. They've been on camping trips with us in the past spinner smile

23/12/11 My angel Lucy aged15 made her last trip to the vets the blackest day & xmas of my life.

The vet arranged everything I couldnt was to upset.

She is now in a beautiful casket on my bedside table with her colar & tag, I have instructed my sons that when its my time to go Lucy is to be buried with me, she will take me over rainbow bridge

All our pets that have passed have been buried in our garden
from hamsters to dogs.
my sister had her dog cremated and his ashes placed in a lovely oak casket and we buried him in the garden as well.
i find it a comfort they are out there and expect our ashes to go in with them when the time comes.
i could never leave them at the vets, but to each there own.

we still have Alphie's ashes in a little box with a plaque. We were going to spread them somewhere, but all his favourite places aren't actually very nice places so he's still with us at home, but we quite like that.

I actually like the idea of burying a pets ashes and planting a tree over them.

The vets were great for us too, they kept Alphie after he'd gone and arranged everything with the pet crem, we received his ashes and a lock of hair pressed into a keyring (which is with his box) a few days later. Having to not organise that side of things made a horrible time a little easier.

You can cremate and scatter the ashes some-where he loved to be.It's not unusual to see this around here and many people don't bother to get permission.
Wainright is scattered on Haystacks the big fell in the second pic.
This is where Keith ,Dell and I are all going to be scattered.
A beautiful view reached through a short walk through a wood and then a lovely surprise as the lake comes into view, and so peaceful.







And my Brother wants to go on the top.
