    I have worked at a few different clinics over the years, some of which were the vets that went out to do euths at the pound. Dogs are generally bagged and put in landfill. Some end up at teaching unis for vet students to practise on.
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    I would rather see that than shelter dogs just being thrown on the tip. At least by allowing vet students to do their surgery prac on they aren't going to waste.

    I used to be an RSPCA Inspector many years ago and Landfill it was....No one cared, otherwise they would not have been in the pound. The PTS part is worse as to where they get taken after they are dead.

    My own are buried on our property and so are some that belong to friends. Even our horses are buried here. We always plant a tree........I don't identify the tree with the animal, I keep their memories in my heart. Just when you get to my age, there are so many loved ones that have passed.

    Oh dear, when i called it cremation, i meant i thought the vets would fire up some kind of incinerator regularly. When the time comes ill be more informed now. Though i agree with a previous poster, i beleive their soul is gone, but i still wouldnt want my pet thrown in landfill. Overseas they have a tonne of cool ways to deal with people, you can elect to be snap frozen and then smashed into billions of peices, or even made into fish flake food (gross)

    Snap frozen, smashed into a billion pieces and then released into space... Now that would be a cool way to go.

    Gawd, over the last 25 yrs we have buried 4 dogs, 1 cat, 2 ducks, 1 white mouse, 1 rat & 2 birds in our backyard. If we move I'll have to give the new owners a map of where they are to stop them getting a shock when they re landscape!!

    Imagine our place........ 1 clydesdale, 2 friends horses, five of our own, four newfies and two kelpies and one rough collie. All loved and either passed or PTS due to age/illness. And that is since we have had this place (1990). We roughly know where they all are, trees on top or nearby. But we do not mark graves.

    I always loved the poem, "where to bury your dog"

    THE BEST PLACE TO BURY A DOG

    "There is one best place to bury a dog.
    "If you bury him in this spot, he will
    come to you when you call - come to you
    over the grim, dim frontier of death,
    and down the well-remembered path,
    and to your side again.

    "And though you call a dozen living
    dogs to heel, they shall not growl at
    him, nor resent his coming,
    for he belongs there.

    "People may scoff at you, who see
    no lightest blade of grass bent by his
    footfall, who hear no whimper, people
    who may never really have had a dog.
    Smile at them, for you shall know
    something that is hidden from them,
    and which is well worth the knowing.

    "The one best place to bury a good
    dog is in the heart of his master."
