For a pet parent, losing a beloved dog can be a devastating experience. You’ve cared for them as part of your extended family, and they’ve given you unconditional love and devotion. And whether you’ve known a pet since puppyhood or for just their senior years, you’ve probably shared more than a few happy and unforgettable moments. So of course you want to hang on to those cherished memories and keep them close to your heart. We understand that feeling, because we’re pet lovers, too. There are many ways to remember your pets and to celebrate their impact on your life, and some pet owners decide to commemorate their special furry family members with keepsakes like dog memorial stones, pet headstones, pet cremation jewelry or even urns for pets. And if you know someone who’s lost a pet, they might enjoy a thoughtful pet memorial gift like pet memorial plaques or special dog keepsakes.
Let’s take a look at some of the options for preserving all the fun times you’ve had with your pooch. Some pet keepsakes have room for your favorite photo of your pet with an opening to display her collar, too. There are pet memorials that have inspirational sayings or poems around the frame, and others that feature your dog’s picture next to an imprint of her paw print. You can also opt for pet memorial jewelry like necklaces, lockets or pendants with a pet photo, and some of these double as dog urns that safely store your pet’s ashes. Another nice way to pay tribute to your loved one is with pet memorial stones or pet grave markers. They’re made of weatherproof materials like resin or natural stone with a thoughtful epitaph, and you can display them inside, use them as pet gravestones, or place them on a pathway outside or in your pet’s favorite place.
No matter which way you decide to honor your loving pet, Chewy’s here to help with beautiful and commemorative pet memorial stones, dog urns, pet cremation jewelry and dog memorial plaques.
