When we had Schatzi cremated, we got to go get her later that day. We dropped her off at about noon and picked her up at 4. It was a private cremation. (The only kind my mom and I would ever do - I don't want to get someone else's pet's ashes).

Her ashes are next to my mom's bedside.

I had one of my sugar gliders cremated there, also. I took him in at about 4 (they close a little later after that), so I picked him up after school the next day. He's in a little urn my grandpa made for him on my dresser.
I wouldn't bury him, and my mom wouldn't bury Schatzi. I want Atreyu to be with me, and if I ever move, he's coming along too.

It took at least a week to get the ashes back.
My plan is to scatter some of the ashes on their/our favorite places, along the lake and on trails and under the rosebush in the yard. The rest stays with me. I was thinking of putting a tiny bit of it into a pendent that I could wear. The collars on the headrest of my car and they travel with me wherever I go.

Private cremation. I dropped off Baer myself. I brought him home when he was a puppy,; I should be the last to hold him.

I have a box of his ashes. They are also scattered here, in Budapest, in Germany

My big girls are on the piano. After a year or so, I think that I'll release the ashes at Moclips beach--their favorite place. I have their collar, tags and leashes coiled around the boxes.
I think it was about a week to get the ashes.

My gsd Omy was also cremated and it took over a week to get her ashes back. There's only one facility in our area that does individual cremations so it can take a while

For Oreo it took about 10 days but that was because the vet's office forgot to call me (they were HORRIFIED that happened). I had to call them because they said a week. Today they told me it should be the first of next week for Tessa. They already had a pick up scheduled for first thing in the morning from a euthanasia they did this morning so they are going to include Tessa in that pick up, otherwise she told me it could have taken a couple of more days.

I do understand your rush to get Mason back. I want Tessa back home, where she belongs. I know this is irrational but she had such bad separation anxiety so I hate the thought of her being alone right now. I will be glad when she is back with me so I know that she is never alone again.

It has been just over a month since I said goodbye to my beautiful boy Brodie so this really hits home for me.

I too had a private cremation done. It took a week to have his ashes returned to me and I absolutely hated not having him "with" me.

Some of our past dogs we have kept the ashes, while with others, we scattered them at places where they absolutely loved and lived for (for example, Max was a Shepherd/Lab mix and he lived to swim so we spread his ashes at his favorite swimming spot; Jenny's ashes I keep as she was a total cuddle bug and preferred to be indoors where it was warm and comfy).

For me, it really depends on the dog and his or her personality as to whether to keep the ashes or spread them somewhere....Brodie's ashes I keep on my nighstand dresser, next to his favorite snoozing spot where his bed still lays.
