Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us,
 these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so
 many years of our own lives.

- John Galsworthy

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.
- Anatole France

I am sorry for your loss - just as with our human friends and family we would like our pets to be with us forever. The fact that you are reading this may mean that you just had to let go of a beloved cat, dog or other pet. In your grief you may be looking for a way to express your love for them beyond death. Sweet Pet Memories artistic pet urns will provide you with a unique urn to hold your pet’s ashes. It helps you remember them, draw your eyes to a special place where you can see it every day, on an altar, your mantle piece or on a shelf in your living room. It becomes part of your home and gives you a place to gravitate towards – with your memories of them and the love you still feel for them.

I would look at a dog and when our eyes met, I realized that the dog and all creatures are my family. They're like you and me.

- Ziggy Marley

It may be a cat, a bird, a ferret, or a guinea pig, but the chances are high that when someone close to you dies, a pet will be there to pick up the slack. Pets devour the loneliness. They give us purpose, responsibility, a reason for getting up in the morning, and a reason to look to the future. They ground us, help us escape the grief, make us laugh, and take full advantage of our weakness by exploiting our furniture, our beds, and our refrigerator. We wouldn't have it any other way. Pets are our seat belts on the emotional roller coaster of life--they can be trusted, they keep us safe, and they sure do smooth out the ride.
