Put the ashes in a pet urn

Scattering the ashes
A time-honored tradition is the scattering of ashes of a loved one and it is now a common practice to scatter the ashes of your pet as well. This can be in a specific ocean or any other location that you see fit. National parks and local parks, if you ask first, will allow you to scatter your pets’ ashes. Think of your pet’s favorite location. Is it a park? A tree they loved climbing? When you scatter them in their favorite place it helps you with the healing process knowing they are in their favorite spot. Invite someone who loved your pet to take you along to be there with you.
Another unique way to remember your pet with their ashes is to have a piece of cremation jewelry that is made from their cremains.

Get a tattoo

Also, if you decide not to use the ashes, the permanence of the tattoo allows you to keep the memory of your pet alive. A tattoo in their honor will remind you of your beloved pet every time you see the beautiful piece of body art.
Fill an hourglass with pet ashes

Mix with cement for a garden stone
If you love spending time in your garden, then adding a garden stone is a great idea. Mix the ashes of your pet into the cement and create a beautiful stone for your garden. Talk to a local artist and see what options you get. You can choose the color you love, size and also have a short saying written.
