As pet lovers, we share a special bond with our pets, one that continues when only the spirit remains. It seems fitting that we should remember them in the same manner that we cared for them in life, which is why Spirit Remains was created. Custom pet urns from Spirit Remains are for pet lovers who want a one of a kind remembrance for their one of a kind pet. Pet urns from Spirit Remains are not manufactured on an assembly line in a factory. They are unique and made with love. It may sound hokey and corny, but it’s true. The first was made out of love for a dog, and the desire to remember her in keeping with her spirit in life; and Spirit Remains was started to provide pet urn memorials for other pet lovers.
The idea to create custom pet urns evolved after the death of my yellow Lab, Suzie. Her ashes came back in a nice, black, wooden box with a tassel on the top. I decided to make an urn that was uplifting and reflected the way I wanted to remember her. Something whimsical and light-hearted was needed. Since Suzie liked playing fetch, a dog urn painted different colors with “tennis balls” on the sides was just the ticket. An autumn tree stands behind her, because she liked being outside. She had lots of heart, so glittering hearts were added around her. Small “posts” (dowels) raise the urn, which signifies she is no longer grounded on earth. There are only three posts to symbolize something is missing or not balanced without her. Inside the urn are her ashes encased in fabric with dog images on it. And her picture is in a frame inside the lid with her name tag.
