YES HONEY – ALL your little furry, crawling, slimy Pet friends go to heaven
When my 9 year old nephew brought me what I thought was a dried out Mango Seed and said…”Aunt Lynne do you think Uncle Morty can have a funeral for Hammy?” Absolutely. WHY NOT!! Right? In our family we practically bury and have a service for anything that dies. Except my Vacuum Cleaner or maybe something I swat out of my way or accidently throw my husband’s shoe at. All animals and pet friends are not only important to kids, but to grownups too. As my quirky 16 year old niece says: “Everyone has their own – thing…you know.” Okay, whatever that means – I guess I kind of get it. We’re all sensitive about our sidekicks, our BFF’s. Pets arealways there for you when no one else is. They’ll listen to you with no interruptions, play stupid games you come up with and most of all…won’t judge you. So, YES – they deserve a proper funeral.
There’s all sorts of ways to express your feelings about it too. Your friends can send condolences on Facebook, you can set up a memorial Pinterest - heck you can even set up a Blog about Fun Pet Funerals, then everyone can tweet about it. Whether it’s a full service or a quick prayer to say good-bye. You’ll sleep better knowing you did it. Especially, if it was a distant relative of Nemo’s.
