I am interested to learn of pet owner experiences with burying a deceased pet on their property.Do other pets bother or dig at the grave? Do you think cremation is necessary?

I agree. At least that deep, but it depends on what you have creeping around your area. I myself prefer no covering so that the animal returns to earth as soon as possible, but that is up to the person doing the burial.

I've had to bury (sadly) lots of pets, living on a farm. some are deeper than others, and have never had any others bother them. I prefer all natural coverings, so that they return to the earth faster. I also plant a new tree, or shrub or flower there, so I can see them in the flowers.

My first three bassets that passed away we buried out by the creek bank and have the area roped off with personlized crosses marking their graves. This is a very special area in my yard. I still spend lots of time out there. I have since decided to cremate my pets and have their ashes in a pet urn with their pictures on them on a special table in my house. I figure that when I die my pets can all be with me that way. I wished I would have done creamation from the start but I had mixed feelings about it at first.
