Freeze drying your pet??

I just can't see having their bodies laying around, looking lifelike.

I would never be able to do that... Losing Diesel was hard enough, and it was so hard to deal with after the fact, but having her "here" "preserved" would have broken me more... I am still not over her death, I never will be, but to do this would just be a constant reminder of what happened, which is not something I want to. This is horrible and freakish!

My BIL is a taxidermist and he says he uncomfortable when asked about doing pets, I think it's strange.
I guess I should add, my BIL won't do it and refers them elsewhere.

Thats good of him to do so! I think in the end this process is going to hurt a heck of a lot more people than help them grieve and move on

Freeze drying your pet??

I don't think I could do that, it would be far more painful. I however have decided that whenever Avery crosses that rainbow bridge years from now I'm sending his ashes to be pressed into a diamond. Strange to think of that but I don't think I could live without him near by this dog has changed me life.

Based on the title, I was really afraid to click on this thread... what an odd idea.

There is some show about taxidermists where they do this. I just cannot even begin to imagine. I really like the footprint in clay. That and photographs are really all I want. I don't think I could bear to look at a stuffed one of my beloved pets.
