Would you ever preserve your dog after their passing?

I was just searching online for rugs for dogs and came across this photo. I just thought it was a terrible idea and kind of creepy. What's your take?

I know of some people that stuff their dogs and keep them around as decor... *shivers* It's very creepy.

I would have to say its to creepy to keep a mammal stuffed that was a close pet.

I could save other types of pets though. I keep saltwater fishes, octopuses actually and have attempted to keep the bodies after they have passed. The nature of the relationship is want makes this creepy I think. On my best day with my octopus I am fascinated with him, but he doesnt curl up with me or make me feel better when I am sad.

I will say that its horrible to turn them into a rug! A stuffed pet would still be creepy but a rug is just to morbid imo.

I would never honor my beloved companions memory that way.

A dog that checks on my girls every night before he settles down...no way.

I have the ashes of everyone of my dogs. Making them into a rug, IMHO, is disrespectful to the dog. I'd never stuff my dog either, because that's just as disrespectful AND creepy. EWWW
