This is TOO Creepy!

Ok, this is just really creepy! I could never imagine doing this to one of my animals - it would just be horrible! What do you guys think of this?

I had to put my dog to sleep last Oct it was without doubt the worst day of my life, and has been a very rough year since. I still miss him terribly every single day.

However I could not cope with that, it is a little creepy to me - but if it provides comfort to some then they should do it.

I've had to have animals put to sleep too and it is extremely sad. I just couldn't imagine having that animal in the house when it was dead. It would constantly remind me and make my terribly sad. To each his own I guess!

Not going to lie....it does creep me out a tad =/ I can understand cremation because we've done that to a few special pets...but to freeze dry them and have them there. I feel like it would make me even more sad because I'd have to look at them everyday and know that they are dead and not going to move. I love having the memories, I'm okay with that......definately wouldn't have them freeze dried. That's a little wonky to me. But I guess this is a "to each his own" situation.

Edit- haha Equus I posted RIGHT after you and we both said the to each his own thing.

It's very sad when an animal dies, it's terrible and there are times I still miss, and am sad, about pets that have died.

But people grieve and eventually move on. To me this is wrong, like being stuck in a perpetual state of loss. The comments that people say, like they got the animal back, like it's still there, but they really just have the body. It's kind of disturbing for me.

That's really, really gross. It made me sick, no offense to the people to have it done, but yuck! No thank you, cremation is okay, but not this.
It's like mounting your pet's head on the wall.

Reminds me of the dog off scrubs. Could you imagine going to someone's house and you didn't know their dog died and you reached down to pet it.... O.o

Exactly what it reminded me of O.O

It would be very weird to have that, but like everyones said, each to his own O.O
