What do you do when you pet dies?

Last week our 5 1/2 yr old Lab died of a twisted stomach/intestine. She died at home. So this raised the discussion on whether we should spend money and have her creamated or bury her in our back yard. This was my first pet that I had since she was a puppy and the first that I had a choice on what was done with her. So what would you choose to do with your pets body? We talked it over and our last Lab was cremated.. hubby's first dog was buried.. and my (deceased) fil's dog was cremated.. so we ended up burying her in the back yard. It was a hard decision.. but I think in the end I am going to memoralize all of our pets in a plaque/picture.

When my 1st dog passed away I would have loved to been able to cremate him or bury him outback but he was a medium sized dog and there are restrictions about that sorta thing. Sadly, he did pass away at home and my parents called whoever and they came and took him away. My dad told me Bandit was burried over looking a river with flowers all around him and that works for me. My aunt had her doberman cremated and she's kept in a box in the house.
