Post Forty-One: Poor Fido



How much do you love your pet?

Enough to euthanase it and drag it to the afterlife with you?

If you're on your death bed and you can't bear to be parted with your beloved pomeranian, I figure you can pretty much ask for whatever you want and people should try to provide.... but I just don't know how I feel about ordering it to walk the plank! Alack and a Lassie (lol), it happens.
It happened today in fact. A lady is going down in the dirt with her dog AND her cat. Double homicide, let's call Ace Ventura.
Peace. x
P.S. My computer is officially on its last legs. It's taken me two days to post this. RIP vaio.

  3. I knew of one guy getting buried with the house phone... but a pet?
    Even though they may fret, wouldn't they and the remaining family members find comfort in each other?

  4. Well they did it in ancient times right up to near modern times. Grave goods was a common means to assist that person into the afterlife in case they needed it over there.

    Indeed in some Asian cultures the still living wife went on the bier with the soon to be crispy.

    My fave cremation story of 'taking it with you' is how some crematoriums have airline mini bottles on stand by where they have to explain to the grieving that why their mate would have love the 750 ml bottle of Johhny Walker to go in the oven with his bod, said bottle will explode and damage the equipment. So ... how about a couple of these 50ml mini botts instead...
