Photograph is the normal way to make you remember the events of your lost pet. But, the other popular method is to have pet urns. This way, you express importance to the reminiscences of the past pet, which you have been caring, just in case as one of your family members.
Pet urns helps you recognizes the special bond between your pet and you i.e. every member of your family. When you are in a grief situation of having irreparably lost a pet, the urns will serve as its replacement and add solace to the bereaved members. The sight of such urns in your house recalls the moments you have spent with the pets.
Pet urns may represent or relate to any of your pets like dog or cat. But, there are other exotic or unusual pets like rabbits, horses, squirrels and even turtles, lizards, etc. I have even seen cows and in certain cases wild but tamed beasts like tiger/ lion/ elephant being treated as beloved pets.
Once you decide honoring the pet with urns, there are various designs like vase or figurine or photo or jewelry (called pet cremation/ memorial/ urn jewelry). Many prefer to hold ash of the pet also in the jewelry.
The urns are made of different quality materials like wood or bio degradable materials like mulberry bark, ceramics, plastics, etc. They come in different astonishing colors/ tints/ shades, acting as the cynosure of eye, once you decide to adorn your drawing/ bed room.
As in any market, there are many vendors offering the memory materials, hence it is highly competitive. You can get these pet urns at reliable online shops such as http://www.perfectmemorials.com/pet-urns/. The service is so quick that you get them even before you bury your pet.
The other items similar to or sometimes better than pet urn may be pet nose print or paw print jewelry, keepsakes, caskets, engraved plaques, headstones, garden memorials, books, memorial window decals/ portraits/ keepsakes. You can get these at different online stores as per your requirement.
So, if you have lost the pet, leave the grief behind. Forget that you have lost the pet; as it can be with you in the form of pet urns 9for lifetime), as realty.
