Basics To Expect When Planning A Pet Memorial

Dealing with a pet funeral can be a very rough job indeed. If the animal that has died was a family member for many years, then a proper sendoff will need to be given. As long as the dog or cat is shown the proper deference, everyone in the family should have a much easier time mourning its passing.

People must first decide what they will do with the pet. Small birds, for example, can be gently placed in a shoebox and buried in the back yard. Larger animals will require a bit more planning. Dogs and cats might have to be buried in a larger box.

Other individuals might want to have a cremation instead. Instead of burying the animal in soil, the ashes can be scattered in the forest or added to an urn. Most urns are very decorative and will feature sealed tops. This way, the ashes will not become dislodged.

A ceremony for a beloved pet might also involve a number of pictures. Images of Fido or Fluffy in their younger days can be laid out for all to see. This is a wonderful way to honor the animal, and all attendees will be pleased with the choice. Some pictures might even be framed and set up near the grave for a few days.

Small kids might have a hard time dealing with the event. If this occurs, parents can gently take them aside and explain what has happened. With tactfulness, the adults will be able to help the kids through the ceremony.

In the end, a pet funeral can be rough on everyone. With some careful planning, however, the memorial service will be lovely for all involved. Individuals will be able to get closure as they continue on through life. Friends can help them until the grief finally passes away.
