|arycrest||We just ordered a headstone for my mother (my sister and I procrastinated about getting one for years), and I decided to get one for myself so people won't have to worry about it. I plan to have a GSD on it ... you can order roses and leaves and ivy ... so I figured why not something I love!!!|

Good, I'm glad its working out. I think older houses can build up energy around them over the years. Usually when houses are first built the energy around them is positive, new, hopeful. That can change over the years with so many changes to it and going from person to person to person. I think what you are doing is good and could continue to knock off any negative residual energy. Good luck with the restoration

It gets complicated in the US regarding graveyards. We've had two separate stories in my area in just the past few weeks. One, ironically, about dogs and another about a family not being allowed access to their families graves by a property owner. I swear I think the rules change almost every day regarding them.
That is interesting! I wonder if the house has some kind of residual energy built up around it from all the other males that lived in the house before.

|holland||Somehow I always end up buying a house by the cemetery and in my last house I used to walk my dogs in the cemetery-in my current house the cemetery is across the street and the rules state no dogs allowed so I don't|

|ozzymama||Just to add quickly, once we found out the history and started restoring her with the vision of what the estate formerly was like, aside from the well pump yesterday and my washer today, this house has responded positively - well sorta, a grand in electrical, but having a vision for her has made us more positive and if possible, she seems more beautiful.|

I don't see a problem at all if you stay on the path and do not allow your dog to pee or poop on the graves and pick it up. If someone is there visiting a loved one, give them a wide berth.
I used to walk around in a cemetery near the university when I was a student. Peaceful place with many trails and I felt like I was giving the dead some level of respect reading their tombstones and wondering about who some of them were.
Certainly if it is a private property cemetery I would respect that but many are not.

|ozzymama||Well, the one beside me is maintained by the city, it was owned by this property when it was Dickson House and Estate and then whatever happened to the original house, the estate was subdivided some went to the church, some to the town for the library and then this, the caretakers cottage was the last piece of the parcel that remained owned by members of the Dickson family until we bought it. Here's a bit of info I thought you would find interesting because you gave me such good advice when I was nervous living next to a cemetery and at a 4 corners - everyone who has lived in this house (males) has become a hardcore alcoholic and ended up losing basically everything, now whether it's a family predisposition or something with the house, we had it saged and blessed and dh still gets silly off two beers and has to sleep 12 hours, so knock wood on that!|

Ozzy, that may be so in Canada, but not in the US. A lot of cemeteries are on public property owned by the state, but even those that are not and are owned by an organization or group or church, they by law HAVE to allow access to the cemetery at the very least to family members of people buried in there. This also goes for private property owners who have bought land with a cemetery on it. So its not completely private.
Individually though with dogs they can have rules to allow or not allow them, but there are no state regulations that automatically disallow it unless they aren't picked up after or allowed to destroy stuff. In that case, the state can hold the owners of the cemetery responsible for unsanitary conditions and fine them for it.
