3 Meaningful Ways to Memorialize Your Pet, Fort Worth, Texas

A pet serves as both a friend and a family member. Therefore, it's natural to want to mark their passing with a monument, honoring their impact on your life. The guide below offers inspiration on how to do so.

How to Pay Tribute to Your Dearly Departed Pet

1. Get Their Portrait Painted

Find a local painter or an online artist who can recreate a favorite photo of your pet on canvas. By hanging it proudly at home, not only will you be able to see their beloved face every day, but it will inspire conversations about your pet, which helps keep their memory alive. 

monument2. Make a Shadowbox of Their Belongings

Shadowboxes contain items that remind you of your loved one. They help slow the aging process of fabrics and other materials by limiting their exposure to light and dust. However, they also have clear fronts that allow you to peek inside. For your pet, consider including their collar, tags, favorite toy, or a section of a blanket they once loved. 

3. Have a Grave Marker or Monument Made for Them

If you choose to bury your beloved pet on your property, you can have a marker made for the spot. This allows you to keep track of their resting place and visit it whenever you think of them. It can be as simple or elaborate as you want it. Some people have their dog's image etched into the stone while others just opt for their name. Regardless, it is a tribute that will last for generations.
