Please accept my condolences. It's so hard to say farewell to a companion we have known and loved.
We have the ashes of my heart dog Loppy and when it comes time for me to be cremated his ashes will be combined with mine.
I kept the ashes of four previous dogs as well. When we moved into the home we live in now, it's our last home, we had a memorial service of sorts and buried their ashes in our garden. That way they will be "with us" as long as we are around.
So, yes... I understand.

Working our way toward retirement...wishing it was soon.
I never got my Mom an urn after she died, she "lived" on my bookshelf in the bright pink bag they put the box in. Horrible, I know but I do like that shade of pink!
When Dad died I picked out a double clock urn (that was funny, I had no idea they made those until I saw it, and he LOVED clocks) for him and Mom together. Mortuary had no problem adding the ashes of his beloved Skeeziks to his side. So there they all are, keeping time.

Sorry for your lost. My woody passed away 11/25/2011 ( 3 months shy of 16yo ) and had him cremated too. He went to bed and went to sleep the way I wanted him to so I would not have to put him down. He was running around and eating good that day but he had lost so much weight and I knew I was not going to have him much longer. Was happy he did not suffer. Xmas sucked not having him around.
