How do you honor your deceased pigs?

In the last 11 months two of my girls passed away, one from cancer (last September), and the other passed away during a dental procedure (this April).

I have a special place for their graves in my flower garden. I put some of their ashes under the graves, while the rest are in their urns.

I’m not sure how to upload pictures on here, otherwise I’d share.

You need to find a host, upload them there, and then link to them here. Imgur and flicker are two photo hosting sites people sometimes use.

I think remembering past pets is good for our hearts. I take pictures - sometimes put them in frames on walls.

When we lost Jessie we bought a garden bench. Then when we lose a fur angel we buy 2 memorial plaques. One to go inside https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Personalised-Pet-Memorial-Plaque ... .m2749.l2649
Then another with their picture and connect it to the bench https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Custom-Made-PET-MEMORIAL-PLAQUE- ... .m2749.l2649 then we often sit on the memorial bench as we call it and think of them.

We also buy a plant and make a memory garden. We also do pictures and every year we light a candle with their name on it and we pray for them. I guess you could say we go over board!

You can also get grave markers https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Pet-Memorial-Heart-Stone-Design- ... AOSwHDdcWFT2.

Or you could get some timber and make a cross and put on their grave. But we remember our babies with plaques, pictures, candles and pictures.

As long as you keep them in your heart then you are remembering and honouring them! And they'll always be with you! I am truly sorry for your losses. Reunited again. Never to be parted. RIP wee ones.

It had been a long time since I've had guinea pigs when I got Mr Bubbles and the herd I have now. The last one we had died in 1984 after I left home for the military. I am not prepared for any of my guinea pigs to pass, even though I know it's inevitable. I knew about their relatively short life span (when compared to other pets like dogs and cats), but I don't concern myself with that and I do everything I can to enjoy them while I can.

That said, I plan on getting more piggies when the ones I have now pass. It is my earnest belief that I will be honoring them by providing more piggies with a loving home. I also know what goes into giving guinea pigs proper care and I think it will take enough of my time and they will provide me with enough precious memories to help ease the pain of losing these guys. At least that's my hope. Each little pig is unique and can't be replaced, but other unique pigs can fill the emptiness.

"That said, I plan on getting more piggies when the ones I have now pass. It is my earnest belief that I will be honoring them by providing more piggies with a loving home."

That's how we operate. And especially if the remaining pig is alone, we want to get it a new friend fast.
