When selecting the final resting place for your pet, take into consideration your current situation, Personal and religious beliefs, finances and future plans.
We are such a mobile society in today's times with all of us moving and changing residences several times during our life time. Also, as new residential developments come along there are sometimes restrictions on whether you can any longer bury your pet in your backyard. Cremation is an option that allows you the choice to handle your pets remains as you wish.
Whether you choose to bury them, in a casket or bio-degradable urn, Scatter them, place them a decorative urn, or other memorial, The choice is up to you. The decision you make should be the one that you and your family members are most comfortable with in keeping the precious memory close to your heart.
Remember, if you choose the scattering of cremated remains it is an irreversible act.
All urns are measured in Cubic Inches, the general rule is that one (1) cubic inch volume for each pound of Live Healthy Weight.
You may divide the ashes between an urn and a keepsake or piece of jewelry. There are many products where the ash of your beloved friend may be swirled into glass to make paper weights, sun catchers and memorials. The ash may also be turned into a precious gem set into a ring, pendant or earrings.
If you or your crematory captured your pets paw and/or nose print, these may be turned into jewelry, key chains,or bracelets. If you or your crematory kept some fur from your pet, these may also be contained into beautiful memorials.

I'm Still Here
Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.
My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!
