    Never had a pet before, would love a dog though , but when your pet died (of considerable size eg a dog or a cat) did you bury it in your back garden?

    Can't help but think how weird it would be in the future when someone else moves in and wants to say put a pond where you buried your dog and dig up it's remains :afraid:

    We buried our dog in our garden and made a little tombstone out of a brick, when we moved we took the "tombstone" with us.

    My guinea pig's buried in the garden, I think it'd be weird if she ever got dug up my someone trying to plant flowers or whatever in the future. My nana's got about 4 cats/dogs buried in the garden though I think some of them are just ashes.

    Only hamsters, rats, gerbils and birds are burried in our garden. None of our dogs (thankfully) have died yet.

    For the very reason you mentioned, I dont want my dogs buried in our garden, cremation for my dogs.

    Yup - back garden has remains of various labrador dogs, cats, a couple of goldfish, hamsters that never really stood a chance, and the half eaten remains of lots of birds that were hunted by the aforesaid cats.... that said, it is a fairly large garden and the roses are blooming marvellous.

    Wow we have soo many pets buried in our garden that there are several "graveyards" and so I think it would be quite easy to forget where all the varius cats, hamsters, gerbils, chickens, guinea pigs, fish etc are buried
    Ahh!! Oh no!! I just remembered!! My two beloved fish died yesterday morning and I moved the bowl to the bathroom and only just remembered that it is STILL THERE with two decaying fish floating in it ... Any ideas of moving them from bowl to toilet with minimum distress!? Thanks

    At our old house, we buried a cat in the garden (and I think a hamster too). At our current house, our dog was put down just over a year ago. She has been buried at the end of the garden, now with a flower bed on top of her grave.

    No, I'd never do that ... I'd be too worried that they'd go all go zombie-fied ...

    My hamster is buried at the bottom of the garden. I have no idea what happened to my rabbit when it died though, it didn't get buried! And we flushed the fish down the toilet :|

    we have a dog (she was the best dog ever :'-( still miss her) two rabbits and a crab in our back garden, but we have a big back garden and its very unlikely they will ever get dug up again.

    I have a tiny back garden, so only the hamster have been buried in there... I know my three have, but not sure about my brother's... there could be like 7 hamsters down there having a zombie teaparty.

    First dog was cremated, same would probably happen to the other two -shrug-
