As you well know Mondays are now our Petacular Mondays. We will be sharing all kinds of pet products and information. Our first product is from Farewell. It is the first complete pet urn kit.
Farewell Urn Kit includes:
Eco friendly birch plywood urn
A Guidebook to help families through the grieving process
Funeral and Burial service
Workbook with activities for children
Paint and brush kit for personalizing your urn
Over the years with six children, the oldest is now 29 and the youngest 13, we have experienced the loss of a pet. It never is easy. I think one of the hardest was right before we went on the road and my son's German Shepherd, that was supposed to go with us, ran out into the road and was hit by a pickup truck. It was the dead of winter in Maine and there was no way we could bury her. We actually had to wrap her up and store her body until we found a vet that could cremate her. It was not fun, nor was it easy. One of the Farewell Urns would have made a big difference. My son still loves shepherds, but she has always been his favorite.
The Farewell Pet Kit can also be used to store favorite items from your pet if you are not going to have them cremated. More like a memory box than an urn. You can save their collar, favorite toy, or item your pet seemed to enjoy. The kit is easy to put together and then decorate. There is also a small nameplate you can add. If you use it as a memory box you or your child will be able to open it and look at the items you placed inside.
I really like the Workbook for children. It gives them the opportunity to write and draw about their pet and to tell how they feel. Here are a couple of questions at the beginning of the book:
What was your pet's name? How long did you have your pet? Where did your pet sleep? There are pages to attach a picture or draw one of your own.
The Guidebook has a section for Adults, Adolescents and Children. Each one gives some ideas of how to deal with the loss of a pet. The last few pages of the book are designed to help you plan a burial service if you choose to bury your pet. Listed are a few poems and then how you could go about having an actual service.
I believe Farewell Pet Kits could really assist someone with the loss of a pet. We become attached to our pets and this will help someone to deal with the loss, or allow them to help their children deal with loss. You can purchase the kit we reviewed for $57.48. They do carry other kits in a variety of sizes.
