The death of a beloved pet is akin to a small tragedy. You don’t know what to do, how to bury him, how to honor his memory? It's a sad procedure - you can't do without certain knowledge.
A dog is man's best friend. She adopts the manners of her master. She is always sincere in her feelings. You come home from work exhausted and tired, and your Mukhtar meets you at the door, cheerfully wagging his tail and whining happily. You know that he will never betray you, change or deceive you. Here he is a real friend! And then he leaves … Leaves life. How to deal with this? What to do? You wouldn't wrap your best friend in a trash bag and throw him cynically in a trash can, would you? There are several ways to say goodbye to your pet.
The first and most common way is to bury your pet in the backyard of your house or, at worst, in some vacant lot. You will always know that he is next to you. However, this is prohibited by environmental and sanitary regulations and may entail the payment of a tidy sum in the form of a fine. Another aspect: the grave of your Sharik can be stumbled by "marauders" - small children who can disturb the ashes of a deceased pet.
If you live in a metropolis, then you most likely have an official pet cemetery. Only first the corpse is cremated. This is prescribed by sanitary and environmental standards, because it is forbidden to bury the corpse of an animal within the city. After cremation, you can bury the ashes of the animal, but always in the urn, or dispel the ashes in the "garden of memories". If you wish, you can build a wooden plaque or a small stone monument over the grave of your beloved Sharik.
The next method is burial in an unofficial cemetery. Behind any city there is a forest belt in which you can leave the ashes of your pet to rest in peace. This is not prohibited by law.
There is a possibility to cremate the animal, which can be provided by veterinary organizations. After cremation, the ashes will be handed over personally to the owner, who can order an urn of memory from a jeweler or simply use the winner's cup bought at any sports store.
The death of your best friend is a terrible loss, but you don't need to rush to extremes. Especially fanatical people order mass for the repose or light candles in churches. Still, whatever the loss, one must not forget that we are, first of all, people professing Christianity, and this somehow does not look like a Christian.
