I would guess it depends on your local zoning laws, etc.

We have 3 cats buried in our back yard. I guess if nobody knows...no harm...no foul!

I'm sorry to hear of your loss, I can understand how much it hurts! But, he/she will live on in your heart forever! :)

I have 2 poodles burried in my yard. I have their graves marked and would tell who ever bought this house if I were to move. We have no pet cementary where I live or they would be there. I don't know how legal it is though. I am sorry for your loss.

First let me say I am sorry for your loss. I think there are many cities that do have ordinances against burying pets in the back yard. Your vet may be able to answer this for you or the city office. You many even be able to find the information on line.
