Pets are seen as part of the family by many owners, so their passing can cause distress and upset. Creating a memorial for your pet can be a lovely way to honour them and celebrate the time that you spent together. There are many ways to remember your animal best friend, but here’s just a few:
Pet Memorial Plaques and Stones
One way to remember your beloved pet is with a memorial stone or plaque. Both of these memorial options hold a sense of timelessness, as they generally stay in the same place until someone moves them and they are made of long-lasting materials. While there are many different options for pet memorial stones and plaques, they are most commonly made out of thick and durable granite, ensuring that they last for years to come.
When it comes to engraving, in general, pet memorial stones will feature a picture or script, sometimes even both. The script is similar to a human memorial, where it will state the pet’s name, dates of birth to death and a personal statement or quote of your choice. Once a plaque or stone has been decided, it’s always hard to find a special place to admire it. When it comes to pet memorials, it’s usually a nice idea to keep them in the garden or yard, as this is where they would have loved to play and where special memories would have been created.
Additional Ways to Remember Pets
Keeping your pets ashes can provide a great comfort to some, as it can feel like they’re still with us in our homes. If you don’t feel comfortable keeping them in the house, scattering the ashes can also bring a sense of closure and peace. This can be done at a favourite place of your choice, whether that’s in nature on a walk or kept close in your backyard.
