it's an empty vessel.... it's job is finished. .... <br />
i'm not in there anymore, i've moved.<br />
good wishes<br />
After taking care and loving your pet for years, I will give the pet a little gratitude by burying it.
It is for yourself. The same reason that you might burry a dead human, you want to honor them.
Why do people adopt pets in the first place?<br />
For the sake of the pet? Or for themselves?<br />
That answer just makes the decision of burial (or non-burial) a logical consequence.
because it stinks
To prevent disease, and stink. Who wants to step over it when it is dead over and over again...
Because I loved her--and when I buried "Chloe" I wanted to make sure she was in a good spot, protected. I wrapped her in a blanket, buried her in the woods behind my house--she loved it there.
It keeps the flies away.
I don't understand why people bury dead pets or humans.
out of respect for a life completed here on earth, I bury my companion pets
for you. you don't want to smell them start to stink, do you?
For the grace of god.
We always buried them because we loved and respected our animals. When we were children, my cousins, my little brother and I used to have pet funerals when one of our pets died. I taught my children the same thing. We have two pet cemeteries in our yard, one for dogs and cats and one for my parakeets. I used to see dead animals thrown at our local dump. I thought it was horrible to see a dog or cat just thrown there.
I do not. I cremate, just as I did with my parents when they passed. Certainly burial and cremation are for the sake of the living and not for the dead -- that and you woould probably be fined if you improperly disposed of a pet, if you wered to do so.
You're soooo gonna get it for this question. It's a pity none of the angry answers will have any logic in them.
respect,,keeps them from smelling,,
