Would you ever cremate your pet?

I have a friend who's buisness is pet cremeation. She does pretty well with it too. I'm not sure I would be able to have my dog cremated and have the remains given back to me. Would you? Would you spread the remains somewhere or keep them?

This may be weird but we are planning on creamating all of our animals when they go and we want their ashes spread with ours when we go. I want them with me always and it would kill me to bury them and then move one day and not be able to visit them.

I have had two of my pets cremated. I didn't want to bury them because I didn't know how long I'd be living where I was, but I didn't want them just trashed. They were too much a part of my life and I love them too much to do that. I haven't spread the ashes, but it's something I may do someday, at a place they loved.

When my best friend of 15 years, Mandy, passed away, I was devastated. I was really grateful for the help, understanding, and kindness that Eden Memorial Pet Care gave me. They made an unbearable situation bearable, and took care of all the details. There was no easy way to deal with the loss of my best friend, but Eden Memorial was great, and their pet cremation services exceptional. Thank you to everyone there.

We cremated our first yorkie 2 years ago he jumped off the bed and broke his neck. at the time our house was for sale so we did not want to put him in the back yard and then move. He is now in a urn on my dresser.

We have a chubby black old Pug. He is so funny looking, I would love to have him stuffed after his demise. Not saying I would though. :)
