This may sound weird.. I have a 13 year old pooch which our whole family love dearly and dread the day when she will no longer be with us . When that day comes , we dont want to have the heart breaking ordeal of casting her away to the vet and only have her ashes as living memory..

I want to know is it illegal to have a special burial at the bottom of ur garden so at least we know she is there even though her soul has gone to another place?

It depends on your deed restrictions for your area. In many places, yes, it is illegal to bury your pet in the backyard. However, I really don't think anyone would know. Be careful though- if you do decide to bury your pet make sure you bury hervery deep. You wouldn't want other animals disturbing your beloved pet. Also, think about what will happen when you move...some people get very upset when they have to move after burying their pets.

I don't know if it's illegal or not, all I know is that EVERY one of my beloved pets which has passed away was buried in our garden.

We always buy a new tree when a pet passes on, and plant it over the grave. That way we've always got something beautiful to remember our pet, and we also know exactly where we buried them.

But yes, it's definitely a good idea to bury them deep!
