Pet Funerals

I offer this here as a resource for those in (hopefully FAR IN THE FUTURE, THERE'S BEEN WAY TOO MUCH OF THIS LATELY) need.

I am thinking some of Maya's earthly remains will go in a hole when I plant a rose on the south side, under (or close to) the living room window she loved lounging on in the sun, next to the driveway where she cheerfully scratched her back.
