10. Memorial Urn

Memorial Urn

If you have your pet cremated, keep the ashes in an urn that memorializes your pet with an engraved name or picture. Place the urn in a spot where you can see it or, better yet, in a place that was special to your pet.

9. Plant a tree

Plant a tree

Many pets spend time in and around a wonderful shady tree so a tree or bush planted in their honor can be an appropriate memorial. Caring for the tree or plant as it grows will remind you of caring for your pet as they grew. The foot of a new tree is a wonderful place to bury the ashes of the pet it honors.

8. Give to Others

Give to Others

A donation to an animal shelter or rescue service given in your pet’s name is a wonderful way to honor your pet. It will also help you remember your own animal friend as you see happy people leaving the shelter with their new pets.

7. Tattoo You

Tattoo You

If you prefer a permanent memory, a tattoo of your pet’s picture between “Mom” and “Born to rock!” will let both you and others know how much you loved your pet. Ask your tattoo artist about mixing a few of your pet’s ashes into the ink to make it a part of the tattoo.

6. Commission a Pet-casso

Commission a Pet-casso

Most pet lovers have plenty of photos of their furry, finned and feathered friends, but a painting is fine art. Check both brick-and-mortar and online pet stores for ads for artists who will immortalize your pet in anything from a caricature to cool modern art to frame and display on your wall or even on a T-shirt. Another great idea is to turn one of those photos into art by transferring the image to a canvas.
