Who remembers the Steven King book/movie Pet Semetery? Scared the bejesus out of me. And why did they spell Cemetery with an S? That’s frightening as well.
We’ve lived in this house for 26 years and we’ve buried four cats and four dogs out there. *waves hands towards the back yard*
You know, when you’re young(ish) and placing your beloved pets into the ground, you think you will always remember where you put them.
File that under: Lies I told Myself.
I mean, we know the the general vicinity, but not an exact burial spot.
I had a lightbulb moment after losing both Callie and Lillie in such a short time span to place markers to help us remember. They are in an area that is the New Burial Area. The old burial area is near the pool area; basically we started fresh with no chance to ungrave anyone.
I’d ordered two heavy granite markers for our sweet girls from here and my MIL gave me this sweet flag for Christmas and it’s perfect in our new Cemetery.
The dates I used are from when they lived with us, not their actual birth year since I’m not in possession of their birth certificates and the Florida Bureau of Vital Statistics office won’t return my calls. Asshats.
Instead of showing photos, how about a VLOG?
Why is hearing my voice like hearing nails on a chalkboard? And they weren’t Butterfly Bushes (that’s what I call them) that were removed, the technical term is Fire Bush; but saying my fire bush was out of control doesn’t sound proper on a Tuesday morning.
*Shortly after, Peanut found a dead frog and proceeded to run around with it in her mouth like she’ d just found a billion dollars worth of cookies, with me following.
For a moment there, I envisioned ordering her a Grave Marker as well. KIDDING!
Not sure if I’ll do the VLOG thing again. I used to do them occasionally as they seem easier than trying to take appropriate photographs.
Chime in, please.
Have you buried pets in your yard or do you cremate?
I suppose I should be mindful of pet-free homes…
Have you buried any bodies in your yard?
