For our Four-Legged Family Members
Several years ago my beautiful Alaskan Malamute-Chow mix great friend named Sophie was dying of cancer and I had to have her euthanized. It was the most excruciating decision I had ever made. However, it gave me some comfort knowing that I would be giving her back to God and the creation from which she came. Now in cremation her ashes would be part of the larger world again. I made an urn for her ashes and invited several close friends to gather with me near the top of the Beartooth Pass on the border between Wyoming and Montana. There is a small unnamed lake, which I now call Sophie's Lake, just a short distance up from Long Lake, that I have always thought was so stunningly beautiful, and there my friends and I scattered her ashes. I still have the urn but now it holds her old dog tags and collars so I can continue to hold her in my memory.
I hope these urns can serve to cherish your memories of your beloved pets, too.
Most of these urns can be personalized with a name and birth and death dates carved into the side for an additional $30.
As a general guide for choosing which size of urn, one pound of body weight will fill one cubic inch after cremation. For example: a 50 pound dog's cremains will need 50 cubic inches. This is not an exact correlation though. Each body varies in bone density.
