    Does anyone have urns or keepsake boxes of their dogs that have passed?

    Today I moved Mitchell's ashes into a new "urn". I have no idea what it's made for, but it's perfect for holding ashes!

    The cremation company my workplace uses sends pets home in little wooden urns. I do have a personalized one for Grimm that I won in a contest. I haven't quite steeled myself to transferring though, so for now it is empty

    This is what I have for Molly:

    I actually don't really like the look of it anymore, but I don't really have it "displayed" so I have no plans to get a new one. The company that handles the cremation offers some nice urns, but they come sealed and I don't like the idea of not being able to access the ashes (plus, they're very expensive!).

    Maggie came home in a simple wooden box and that's where she'll stay - I like that it's not obviously such a container.

    For the Shibas I bought a Japanese puzzle box, it seemed fitting. I want to affix their dog tags to it still though.

    our past 3 dogs all came in urns. and they are all still in. Lassie needs a new one, as hers fell and borke a couple years ago. still have not got around to fixing it or replacing it. all are in a different coloured urn. Lassie dark blue, CJ creame and Sweetie grey. dale the rabbit is actually in a urn aswell but its more like a wacky canister. not sure where she was don as I was very young when she died and away with my friends family. so my family crmated her for me so thats what I returned home to.

    Mine are in white tins with paw prints they came back to us in. I just put a picture and dog collar in front of that so you don't really see the urn.

    I love the gnome though!!
