Can favourite pets be involved on the day?
Some venues will allow a family pet to attend the funeral service, on the understanding they must be restrained and well behaved.
If the deceased was an animal lover and had a cherished pet, it is a very personal and touching gesture to have them at the funeral service.
Some of the most poignant funeral stories in the media are the ones about pets who mourn their owners long after they have gone. These stories pull our heartstrings and make us believe in a deep pet bond that goes beyond the grave.
It seems only natural, that allowing pets at a funeral is an acceptable thing. If these pets feel some kind of loss and grief, then maybe they should be present at a funeral or memorial service.
