There is a reason for why many of us hold true beliefs to the expression that dogs are man’s best friend. Whether dog, cat, lizard, horse, or whatever animal, our pets mean more to us than just a pet. Often, without even being able to speak or talk to us, they communicate with us in ways that lead our pets to becoming our best friends.
For many of us, our pets become true members of one’s family. We enjoy bringing them along to family events, we celebrate their birthdays, we allow them to sleep on the bed. They become an ingrained part of everyday life.
As members of our family, we value the lives of our pets. We see them daily, and each and every day they provide unconditional love to their family. Pets have a miraculous ability to always be ready to provide love and support when we need it. Some of us have pets that are service animals or therapy animals, because of their warm, inviting, and comforting natures.
They play an important role in our lives. While we may have a pet for only a part of our life, oftentimes, we have them for their whole lives. They love and serve around us every day.
This is why so many people choose to have their pets memorialized with an urn. It can be important to remember that they symbolize a life devoted to its humans. They symbolize unconditional love and affection. They symbolize companionship and friendship to the ultimate degree.
Paw print engravings and the names of our pets on pet cremation urns often symbolize the imprint they have left on our lives. While we often move on from the sorrow brought at the loss of a beloved pet, there is much solace and comfort to be felt at the remembrance of their love and affection for us.
