Ordering a Dog Tombstone
As you prepare to bury a canine who has crossed the rainbow bridge, ordering a tasteful dog tombstone can be part of the process of someone’s mourning. While it’s certainly not pleasant, knowing the steps of purchasing a tombstone.
First, you’ll want to ensure that you know the rules for the cemetery that you are considering. Many have rules for the sizes and shapes of all dog tombstones. If the rules do not fit with your ideas of the memorial, you may consider laying your canine companion to rest in a home garden.
Next, decide the material and design that you’d like. There are many materials available, from rose quartz to bronze. It truly depends on what your budget is and what your aesthetic needs are. In terms of design, you’ll have to spend some time researching local availability of various shapes, designs, and inscriptions. Online ordering exists, and some storefronts even offer free shipping.
Finally, be sure to compare prices. Not every option is going to offer the same price, even if the dog tombstone is essentially the same from both sellers. Just as you would not buy a cell phone or a laptop without shopping around, these memorial stones are an investment that you will enjoy for years to come. It wouldn’t do to feel that you paid more than you were able when other options exist.
While the death of a dog is one of the worst events that a family can go through, setting up a memorial where people can mourn, visit, and celebrate the life of their companion is a valuable way to process grief. If a dog tombstone is something you are considering as part of that memorial, be sure to do your research so that the grieving process is not complicated by outside problems.
