    If you live at a permanent residence... What I do is plant a tree, or other strong plant. It's nice to have something living to care for and see flourish, and a beautiful reminder of their life.

    I also get tattoos in memorial.

    These were great ideas
    I think a tattoo portrait would be great because you can always look at him and think of the great times you both have shared

    Sorry for you loss

    Thanks for the ideas guys, but i am a woman and dont think i could have a tattoo like that. I did however find a nice way to remember him by, i came across a seamstress who made cushion covers with dogs images on them, ImageUploadedByTapatalk1354578438.766281.jpg i sent her Cash's photo and heres what she came up with. Im happy with it as it means theres always a little reminder of him around the house (The flag in the backround is a scotland one lol)

    As a women with tons of tattoos I find this highly offensive and sexist.

    Mhmm and you saying that its because your a woman is still extremely sexist and offensive
    Especially considering I have tattoos of my dogs and plan on more of my dogs

    A woman, a mum and a nurse, i can't have tattoos of dogs on me. As much as i love him, it's not practical. No need to be so touchy. I'm not here to offend.

    Well, as a woman, and one who works in a corporate environment, if I wanted a tattoo of my dog I'd get one where it wouldn't show when I'm dressed for work, if that was an issue for me. And if the fact that you can't go to work with a tattoo of your dog showing IS the issue, say it, rather than coming across as "women shouldn't have tattoos of DOGS!". It does sound a bit judgemental and sexist, I have to agree...

    (Not trying to stir, just another opinion).

    Everyone calm down. Chalk it up to poor wording on Cash's part.

    I think it's a lovely cover and it's also something you can snuggle with while remembering him.

    As for poor wording, I didn't take any offense at Cash's post about her not doing a tattoo. She was just stating that she was a woman (to be honest I didn't know she was until she posted that) and she didn't think she (herself, personally) could get a tattoo of a dog. She didn't post that she couldn't get one "because" she was a woman. Her beliefs are that she can't. It doesn't mean that all women shouldn't or can't.

    I don't know if you have a garden, but I've seen rocks with dogs images chiseled on them and my friend has these types of rocks with the dogs names, I guess it is kind of like a tombstone, but not really. Of course they can only do so much with a picture on a rock, but the ones I have seen are pretty nice looking. I can't say I know what it costs though, it might be kind of expensive.

    Theres concrete pitbull memorial statues on ebay i stubbled across kinda like a head stone. I my buddy ever passes i would get one and put on his grave site. They look pretty good. Some have cropped ears while others have the floppy. And i would prolly plant some sort of small tree or bush.

    Its kinda morbid but i know ill out live my lil buddy and when i put him to rest his grave site will be first class. Was thinking of a 4x6 spot outlined wth tempered 4x4s and coverd with eithier small river or granit rock. And the headstone up top with a japanis maple or some other bush that blooms during the spring and summer right behind it.

    So very sorry for your loss.
    Things that I have done for my pets have been, putting a picture of them in a glass Christmas ornament, making a memory box (This is a good idea if there are children that want to do this), starting a butterfly garden with memory markers in my yard where they are buried, and donating in their name to some of my favorite organizations. I can say, for each person grieving the loss of a pet or a loved one, there is no right or wrong answer, do what feels best and right for you.
  18. When I lost my first Pittty Traine, I had a plack made and had his collar bronzed. It turned out to be a beautiful idea.

    I had a sketch done for my aunt when she lost her old dog. It's 8X10 and faces our front door so she sees it each time she comes home.
  20. I inked my dog's paw print onto an index card the day I had to put her down and I will be having it tattooed over my heart as soon as I have the extra funds to do so.
