agreed, 100%. i'll plant Mo's tree with his ashes, because ... the tree, and can live on in a new form.

Kelly, I was away for a while, and I just read about Mo-kitty, I am so, so sorry. I wish I had more words to comfort you, but know I am thinkingabout you and Mo-kitty.

thanks so much, i really appreciate all the support i've found here. -kelly
What sorts of memorials comfort you? Why?

Saving collar and tags. I have no idea why.

I'm with you on this. I see no reason to waste money on new water and food dishes (I have a nice hand thrown ceramic one I bought from a potter in Colorado), leashes, beds, etc. Every dog has gotten a new collar.

Since I'm into roses, I choose a special one to plant over the grave in my Pet Cemetary. No cremation. And I do a donation to the Humane Society in their name so that some other unfortunate animal can be helped even if I'm not up for adopting a new one just yet.
My vet does a nice "pawprint" token; the pet's pawprint in clay. Most of what I have of Sam, I ... don't need any of those things to put myself in mind of him. What sorts of memorials comfort you? Why?

Two things.

1) Memories and photographs.
2) The donation of the body to a vet school.

It's not for everyone,but it helps me.Mojo's body
will be donated to LSU for the further study of hemangiopericytoma.

I don't know if I could do that but it is a wonderful idea. Blade's fibrotic Myopathy possibly could benefit other GSD's.

Kelly, you may want to inform the nursery what the tree is for. Many nurseries will give a discount for the tree you select for a memorial. At least the ones around here did. I didn't
expect it or care, but when I started crying and telling them it was a memorial
tree for our beloved Murphy they did discount the tree. I couldn't help from cry I was still very raw and selecting the tree was a hard task but well worth
it in the end. When I look at the growing tree with all it's strength and beauty
I always think of my dear Murph.
I hope each day is getting easier for you. One day at a time.

That is very, very cool Terri. Thank you so much for being able to help students and veterinarians possibly understand Mojo's disease better.
