ToolPackinMa asked what we do with our dead dogs. Clearly, I didn't take offense. I'm impressed that she asked - no one ever has, actually.

Well, we have them individually cremated and get them back in jars. It's weird to some people, I'm sure, but Eric has been carrying around his childhood dog, Rocky, forever.

I specify "individually" because you have the option to do a group cremation (they don't do this with people, btw) and get back a portion of the ashes. I don't like that idea, but it is a lot cheaper. Cremation is way more expensive than burying your pet in your yard, but this way you can take them with you when you move and don't have to worry about them getting dug up, etc.
