When any of your pets died what did you do?
For example:
When my dog Tango died we made a little place in are back yard for us to put flowers on. I even made i sign saying Her name on it.
When my pet Guinea pig died I drew a picture that is not all that good looking but it helped me get over his death,sort of. :p

Well, when my dog Missy died, we took her to my dad's house to bury her. My dad made a cross with her name on it. I mostly cried all the time after her death, I made a special place in my photo album just for her. I looked at her pictures all the time, too. She was such a great dog.

When my dog died, I was about 10; we had the vet put her to sleep. We were not able to have her body, so I found a huge smooth rock and painted it of the little things I loved about her. Then we placed it in the garden were she used to sleep on hot days.

Since then I have only had fish died, I made a page of pictures and their behaviors and have it hanging up in my bathroom.

When my parakeet sunny died we buried him. I took one of his feathers to the beach and threw it into the water. Now we will be getting a stone for him and I will decorate it.

When any of my pets die we do our best to creat a memorial. For instance when my dog Zeus died we held a memorial service, the whole family came and we all shared our pictures, and stories of him. We also burried him in our backyard, and planted a dogwood tree.

i havn't had a pet die in a long time. use to when a dog died we would burry him in the backyard, but i'll probably either cremate or burry them in a pet cemetary.

We didn't really do anything. Each of my dogs who've past away were all put to sleep and we didn't want to have them cremated or anything..

When my smaller pets passed on I always cried & burried them in a nice place, in the back yard. When my dog was murdered, my ex & friends burried him in a lovely field near a young tree. I then carved his name into the tree & went nuts for 3yrs.

When my Casey "Bubba Dude" died, I had him cremated and kept his ashes. They're in a beautiful wooden box made from wood found only in Hawaii (my SIL gave it to me) along with a lace hanky that a friend from PT gave me and my grandmother's Italian crystal rosary beads. Because I rent, I couldn't bury him.

When my pets pass away I usually bury them next to the big pepper tree in the yard. When I have the time I will make them wodden crosses, but so far I have had no time, sadly. When I lived in New Hampshire I had a whole animal graveyard. Not only were there pets that I had loved, but wild animals that had passed away. Like, for example, maybe a snake that had gotten hit by a car. I think I might have buried a baby squirrel there too. I think I had 10 or 11 graves there. I loved being able to have my loved animals so close to me, but I moved and had to leave the graveyard behind. :(. I also have my two dogs' ashes in my bedroom. Sammy a cairn terrier and Emma a Lab x husky.

All of my pets have been burred in my back yard. I have so many back there. Not only do I have my own there, but I have other peoples pets there too, and some rescues that didn't make it.

I always cry and then to calm me down some Justin always sits and watches Father of the Bride 2 with me, it's my "happy movie".

Burried in my yard I have 2 of my cats, Scampers and Roxy. 2 birds, my first cockatiel, Sunny and Lovebird, Juliet. My ferret, Yeager. 3 mice, Sadie, Sophie, and Chip. 2 bunnies, Frosty and Carmel.

I have my friend's 18 year old poodle, Chiquita and her cat, Ashes. There are also 2 bunnies that were a friend's. I have an old coworker's cat, Midnight.
Also burred in my yard are 3 guinea pigs that were rescues, but too far gone and didn't make it. My vet didn't give them much hope, but losing them was so hard because I nursed them day and night for 3 days before the first one passed, the other 2 died within the next day or so.
