Me too, I think about it sometimes and don't know how I'll ever let them go,
the bond I have with my current dogs is so strong, and since I've been ill
I spend a lot more time with them than one normally would, we are inseparable.
I can't imagine what it'll do to hubby too. Hopefully it's a long long long way
from now.

I can't even imagine my life without Jaxx. He has become such a big part of our family and him and I spend so much time with him during the day.

I also do not think I could do this to Jaxx after he passed. We have always kept something that was special to our pets when they passed. For instance our golden retriever had a huge wicker basket for his toys. I have that basket filled with teddy bears and it is in my living room. Anytime I look at it I remember Shadow. It has been about 14 years since Shadow passed but just looking at the basket helps me feel he is still with me. I would have loved to let Jaxx use it for his toys but it is a big basket and there is no way Jaxx could get toys out of it.

I knew of a lady that her littleones bronzed and used one for a door stop. Rex was hi
s name he was a wee terrrier. He looked like an ordinary little statue but very realistic.

I couldn't stand having Ruby stuffed and sitting about the place. No, when she passes (which is a looong way off) I'm going to have her laid to rest at a cemetery. I know some would probably think that's whacky so I won't say stuff/mounting a pet is whacky, just not for me.

Its not the price... I just want my memories of them to be when they were full of life. Seeing them stuffed would just remind me that they are... Freeze dried! Egads! I am going to check out thevideo tho...

So we talk about this way, way too much around my house. My uncle really wanted to get his cat done when she passed but my aunt wouldn't have any of it. Ever since then my husband has been talking about it. I really was upset by the idea but now a year later with him still going on about it I guess I am a little more open to the idea. But then part of me can't even imagine that I would have just said that. Then what will we do with it when we die??? Do our family's really want to remember US with a stuffed dog. I have to say Dee's idea does take care of that problem but a bird is one thing. I can't be buried with a whole pack of dogs! So what would happen with the remains then? I can't handle the idea of my dogs remains ending up in an antique shop or a dumpster.

Then I don't think I would ever agree with my husband on a pose. He wants them standing majestically in some sort of diarama with fake eyes and the whole thing. I think curled up asleep is much more appropriate. Really when it comes down to it I would rather have them cremated and spread somewhere. Ugh this topic.... Can you tell I have given it WAY too much thought?

Was the dog actually in there or was it a cast? Or a cast that had ashes in it? Or was it really a bronzed corpse????? Maybe this is where me and hubbie can compromise. I wouldn't mind a bronze cast as much as a stuffed dog.

Also I realize this is really morbid to talk about and if I really thought about loosing my babies every time I thought about this subject I would be in tears all the time. Because my husband talks about it ALL THE TIME. I look of it more as a marital issue than a loosing my dogs issue.

I would be another no on this one, I think it would upset me / freak me out having this done with Max. Cremation would be the way for me I think.
