Schultz's memory

Postby schultz's honor » Sun Mar 11, 2007 12:30 pm

This may sound like a strange question, but was does everybody do with their deceased best friend.
The reason for my question is, we had to put Schultz down last August.
I could not bring myself to bury him, so we had him cremated.
We now have a can of ashes that I am not sure what I should do with.
Right now he is sitting on our fireplace hearth.
This spring we are planning on constructing an indoor out door kennel.
Heated with concrete floor.
I am considering putting his ashes under the foundation for the building.
I had considered scattering his ashes over our favorite woodcock ground, but I am being selfish and would like to keep him closer to home.
Geez I miss that dog.

Schultz,s Honor

We have 2 dogs on a shelf in our living room.We have them in Urns with there collars,tags and there old bells around them.Also with a picture of the 2 of them sitting next to each other.

I always think what if we move from the house we are in and cant bring them with.Thats why I like them in the living room with us.Sometimes I walk by and say hey and give the picture a little rub.Thats where they belong still with us :)

It does'nt matter he is gone but definately not forgotten and where ever you decide to put his ashes whether in your favorite wookcock spot or under your kennel and then you could possibly move. It really does not matter because what I am trying to explain no matter how far his burial is from you he will always and I mean always be close, because he will be in your heart and memories no matter where his remains may lay.

Nice, touching, hearing folks talk about their dogs this way.
Yep, lost many dogs to time, it goes so fast.
My gun cabinet has a collection of Urns, precious contents ringed by dog collars. I miss em all, everyday.

if the dog be well remembered, if sometimes he leaps through your dreams actual as in life, eyes kindling, laughing, begging, it matters not at all where that dog sleeps. On a hill where the wind is unrebuked, and the trees are roaring, or beside a stream he knew in puppyhood, or somewhere in the flatness of a pasture land, where most exhilarating cattle graze. It is all one to the dog, and all one to you, and nothing is gained, and nothing lost—if memory lives. But there is one best place to bury a dog.

If you bury him in this spot, he will come to you when you call—come to you over the grim, dim frontiers of death, and down the well-remembered path, and to your side again. And though you call a dozen living dogs to heel, they shall not growl at him, nor resent his coming, for he belongs there. People may scoff at you, who see no lightest blade of grass bent by his footfall, who hear no whimper, people who may never really have had a dog. Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from them, and which is well worth the knowing. The one best place to bury a dog is in the heart of the master.â€

A friend made a nice wood box, and took a favorite picture of the passed companion, and laser engraved it on the cover. Makes a nice looking mantle piece, along with collar and tags. Then if you ever move your friend comes along.
If you'd like I can get a picture of what I'm describing.

I'm thinking of getting the dog mounted. In a curled up position sleeping on the floor. Is that creeper than petting a picture of him or what?

I sure hope that you failed to read the whole thread and have a sick sense of humor.
If you did read the whole thread you have no heart.
If that was a poke at someone finding solice in visiting there old friend by petting the dogs picture, that is cold.

Years ago while chasing doodles along a river bank I came across a laminated wooden memorial with a picture of a golden in it. I hunt that area once a year and every time look for one persons tribute to their best friend. I bet they spent quite a bit of time on that bank overlooking the bend in the river, maybe fishing, maybe hunting or maybe???? I think about those two every time I find it.
