Where Do You Take Your Pet Dogs/Cats When They Die?

This may sound so eccentric but I'm actually wondering what other pet owners do when their pets died. I just want to prepare for the future of my pet dog, Stitch. She is already old now, been with me for like, four (human) years and white hairs have grown on her black fur. I love her so much that I'm planning to buy a small lot for her at the PAWS site (Philippine Animal Welfare Society) where they offer burial sites for pets.

We buried our dogs in our backyard when we had to put them to sleep. It gave the kids some closure we thought. We had planned on living there a long time. Then we had to move and of course decided to leave them there. I didn't like the idea, but seemed the best choice. It was a tucked away place and hopefully won't upset the new owners. We never met the new owners by the way...

i think the ownwers wouldn't know that pets are buried in their backyard unless they dig in the ground. but i think they might be in horror when they find animal skeletons there...

That's exactly what I thought, but I had a neighbor who would be sure to tell them any and all about the house and I'm sure she covered that.

My family has buried pets in the backyard as well. We are not supposed to, but they are our family and we don't want to just throw them away.

yes, and i think even animals deserve a decent burial just like any other living being.

I have always buried my pets in my own backyard, that way they are always here, I never thought of burying them any other place..My pets become part of the family and its only natural to bury them nearby.

All of our pets have been buried in the backyard when they die. I even buried a gerbil in the backyard of the house I grew up in.

These days I've buried my pets in my yard. I have a large yard but I need to bury them where the dogs can't get to them. When it comes to the dogs, I don't think I will be able to dig a hole big enough and may have to do something else.
