Today we’re sharing beautiful yet tasteful memorials for dogs in honor of World Animal Remembrance Month. There are so many different ways to honor your lost pet from jewlery or a mosaic to a personal painting of your beloved pet. It might be a bit overwhelming to search and find just the right memorial, so I have taken the liberty of narrowing down the search for you.

Tasteful Memorials for Dogs
Urns of many kinds: Eternal Paw Prints has so many beautiful items to choose from to remember your pet. You can wear a locket around your neck, choose a beautiful urn made of porcelain, ceramic or pottery. They even have gorgeous stained glass urns that you can engrave the front of as well. If you are looking to have a special spot in your garden for your dog, they have beautiful garden stones to choose from as well.
Etsy: There are so many items for purchase on Etsy and tasteful memorials for dogs is one of them. There are some pretty talented people out there! Just browse through Etsy and you’ll see! There is a beautiful mosaic from Tina’sMosaics. It will be one of a kind and a beautiful addition to your garden or a spot inside your home. You don’t have to choose an urn or a stone, you can wear your memorial with a beautiful bracelet, or carry it around on a stamped keychain. There are even people who can create a painting of your dog for you. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
Memorial Stones: If you are looking for a simple stone to place in your garden or yard, Adirondack Stone Work is the place to look. They hand shape their stones, using chisels and hammers, so it truly is one of a kind, just like your dog. It is a small family run business with just a husband and wife, and his brother, with many years experience between them working with stone. You can expect your stone is about a week from the time you order it. I always prefer to purchase from small business when I can, and something so personal you know will be taken well care of from a small family run operation. You can look at their gallery of memorial stones and place your order here at their website.
Purchasing and choosing a memorial for your dog is a very personal thing. Be sure you are satisfied and know the return policy from whomever you purchase from. Memorials for dogs can help you to find that closure you need when you have lost your own beloved companion. Of course you will always remember them, but having something close in remembrance is a beautiful thing.
