  1. These places have their own lines of urns, boxes, etc and, depending on who you chose you will be shown pictures of them for your selection as well as what you want engraved. I imagine jemappelle had difficulty getting a scatter box, because they are much cheaper (and in a lot of cases, prettier) than the urns. Make sure you see written down what you want on the engraving. Happened to me once, but luckily what I had asked for was there in the vet’s order book and the engraving was replaced. I’m about to fall into bed, but tomorrow I will take some photos of the u
  2. Pets at Peace and Pet Rest have to be watched very carefully. Edited to add that there isn’t much choice.
  3. I don’t have my urns on display (would you believe I have 17 since 1997?), but I keep the most recent ones on a bookshelf in the study because I do like to look at them, reminisce and remember how much I loved all these little dogs and one cat. I could not countenance even the thought of burying any of them.
  4. This is such a sad time for you and your boy @giraffez. The day will indeed be very sad, confronting and scary even if you know totally that it is time for him to go. I will try to help with some answers based on my experiences. 1. Talk to your vet to ensure you are comfortable that he/she will make the time as gentle and as smooth as possible. 2. Ask about the companies they use, either for burial or cremation, or interment at your home or whatever you want to happen. Research the companies your vet uses as you are right in that some are better than others and I know f
  5. I am going to get in touch with a member of this forum who is an expert on small dogs and their ailments particularly Chinese Cresteds to come into this thread. @yellowgirl
  6. Poor little pup. She must wonder what the heck happened to her lovely life. Makes me want to cry and wring that owner’s neck.
  7. You must be devastated. Shocking and disgusting thing for them to have done.
  8. It can be so hard and distressing. Best wishes to you and Bob and Bonnie.
  9. And perhaps add: I’ve put this all over social media to warn others about this “dangerous and disgusting” drunk.
  10. Poor baby. Sounds as though he may have a mild case of Haemorragic Gastro Enteritis. Hope your trip to the vets was productive and pup is well on the way back to good health. What breed? Some are more prone than others.
  11. A week later and poster has not responded. I’d love to know what has been the dynamic in that household in that time. Yes, out of plain and simple curiosity, but also thinking of the welfare of the pup. Poster called her partner’s actions “dangerous and disgusting.” I couldn’t live with that.
  12. What? And be stuck with a person liable to animal cruelty. What comes next . . . . . .
  13. Wow That is extraordinary. What next when he is drunk? Football with the dog? I would never trust him again. I’m sure it isn’t as easy as “kick him out” unless you own the house. But I sure would be working out how to do so.
  14. Dear @Snook, a truly beautiful tribute to your beautiful Justice. (And you are beautiful too. ) Those last two photos (the one of Justice channelling his inner wolf and the one of both of you) are very very precious. I am sure many of us can relate to your story of seeing Justice’s photo was all it took to know he was yours and you were his. Huge loss, huge love. In the world of dogs, they seem to go together. Always remembered, Snook.
  15. I guess I am the only one to believe (or the only one prepared to say it ??) that crating a dog for a whole night is wrong. Crates are an important part of a dog owner’s life. They can be life savers, sanity savers, happy time out places, safe places, etc etc, but all night? I can’t agree.
  16. God help us. How many more poisons can humans create?
  17. Oh lordy. I read the title and prepared myself to be outraged
  18. Considering there is plenty of dog fighting going on in Australia and worse in many other countries, I wouldn’t doubt it, @Kirislin.
  19. I just miss my little boy so much. One of the little things he would do ..... Despite having bedding galore, he would lie on the floor up against the wall and I would be at sitting at the table doing whatever and every so often he would get up and walk around to check on me. We would have a little chat and he would go back to snoozing. I think Sooty is missing just having another little dog there as well, but she is getting lots and lots of attention.
  20. @MotherLeaf, I’ve read again your post and I think little Spunky was somewhat neglected by his previous owner. Be that as it may, he certainly has found love and appropriate care with you. I’ve recently lost a little dog who had incontinence, not the continual dripping sort, but just when he’d be asleep or lying down. I did use belly bands on him which were extremely helpful. He was also prescribed Propalin which, although it took a couple of weeks to kick in, was very effective and certainly stopped my washing machine from having to work overtime. Mezza was also very elderly
