With the introduction of increased mobility and freedom to move around the world we have in effect distanced ourselves from our immediate families. Often times people cope with this reality by increasing their bond with animals such as dogs and cats. In the United States 62% of households own a pet as revealed by a study in 2008 by APPA (American Pet Products Association). This is up from 56% when the poll was first conducted in 1988. The increased intensity in the bond between person and pet has made it more difficult as we experience the reality of a pet dying.
Unique Pet Memorials
To cope with the loss of a pet many have turned to unique memorials such as pet cremation jewelry. This jewelry offers the ability to hold a small portion of cremated remains inside of a necklace pendant.
