Losing a Pet
Losing a pet is just as heartbreaking as that of a best friend. And all too often, we are challenged to find a proper way to honor their memory. After suffering the loss of our dear dachshund, Silke, we set out to create one and give others the peace we were so desperately seeking.
It’s okay to grieve.
After losing a pet, we owe ourselves the permission to mourn the loss just as we would a person. How and when you grieve is a personal decision, but we recommend setting aside a time each day to remember and process your emotions. Take the time to remember your best friend before deciding what to do with pet ashes.
You are not alone. Our blog is home to a wide array of pet loss resources.
What to do with pet ashes.
Pet cremation does not need to be the end — planning and implementing a memorial is a wonderful way to move through grief after losing a pet. The memorial you choose reflects the special bond you and your pet shared and turns pet cremation into an opportunity to honor your memories together. Personally, we love living memorials because they give us a truly unique way to remember our pets.
