    With so many dogs having to be euthanased I am surprised that people really expect that they would be cremated...BIG costs involved for pounds, vets etc etc.

    My animals come home to be buried on the farm.
    If I lived near a pet crematorium and in a town I would prefer private cremation. Not an option out here though.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    As Di said, cremation is an expensive process, that's why you should always take your pet with you after they have been euthanised at the vets.

    I will either opt for cremation or a private pet cemetary unless I move into my dream house before they go.

    I always bring my dog home. Doesn't matter that I move house. It was their home. Two of my old Kelpie girls are buried at my last house and one at my Ex's house. I don't think of them as being away from me, they are in my memories but neither would I like to think of them as landfill.

    I've never had any of my dogs dig up another dog, I'm always careful to bury them deep.

    I had to send Scooby all the way to Brisbane and back to be cremated. Cost me about $150 for the option i chose (bag not urn). Not much for a little dignity to someone who gave me a lifetime of love and devotion.

    And i'm THE MOST unreligious person you will ever meet but i have the upmost respect (even more so) for the dead, wether they are animal or human.

    at the posts that said they dont care yet still preformed a burial or wish themselves a cremation.....methinks you do care otherwise you would have put em in the wheelie bin at home or take yourself for a swim with the fishes if ya's really didnt care.

    Our family dogs have always been buried on the family property. Usually under some fruit tree that could use the nutrition. Does get a bit interesting if some landscaping needs to be done and we dig up a previous family's dog.

    As far as I know, they go to landfill though it might be marginally better for the planet if they went to fertilizer products. That might put a few people off buying compost or blood and bone.

    I don't have any sacred beliefs about dead bodies, though I do think they shouldn't be played with like toys.

    Away from pound euthanasia disposal my apologies.

    Everyone makes a choice based on there own beliefs and circumstance, mine was to leave Sir at the vet after euthanasia, I paid the council fee for disposal, I knew where he went, I have no regrets on my decision. Star will be the same when the time comes. I thought long and hard about it, I had a long time to contemplate upon what I would and would not do with Sirs corpse. From home burial, bush burial, cremains scattered, kept in a jar/urn, or blown into a glass orb, I even contemplated having the corpse pressured into a diamond pendant. The more and more I thought about it the less and less it appealed to me.


    My cousin does a mock up Viking burial for his dingoes, His beliefs give him comfort. I can't see the point in it, but to each there own, live and let live. Doing that brings him comfort and closure and that is all that matters.

    I kind of like the thought of making ashes of some dearly departed into a concrete garden pot as a sort of souvenir. I'd like mine dropped in the ocean as a home for sea creatures.

    I'm not worried about dogs digging them up, it's the new owners I worry about. I do know some people who have purposely laid concrete slabs over the graves and put up sheds or garden benches to try and make sure things go undisturbed.
