This week we’ve brought you a heartwarming tale of a couple who wove sweaters from the hair of their deceased hounds and the touching story of a giant squid who overcame incredible odds to achieve its dream of becoming plastinated and dangled above French people.
Well, thanks to one of our most loyal readers, the elusive “milkshake“, we have uncovered a scoop that could be seen as the missing link between the aforementioned posts. Behold Pet Preservation a pet taxidermy service that will help you immortalize your pet through the miracles of modern science.
Direct from Pet Pres: “Some people simply do not believe in the process of cremation. There is an alternative. Pet preservation, also known as freeze drying, is the comforting alternative to your pet’s burial or cremation.” FREEZE DRYING!!!
Because (according to their website) “only a true friend can leave pawprints in your heart,” you may want to consider freeze drying your pet once it has passed. The website also points out that “burial” may not be “an option” because of “local regulations” or a lack of accessible pet cemeteries, so you may just want to stuff your pet for convenience’s sake.
Here’s a picture of freeze dried Gunny, short for “Gunnery Seargant,” a six and three quarter inch long, asthmatic, gimp-legged, chihuahua who lived in a clothes hamper and “had the heart of a grizzly bear,” according to its owner.
More incredible pictures below the fold…
And what the hell? Why not stuff your pet raccoon, Suggie…that’s not creepy to have around.
One of the best parts of the site is the perplexed/horrified reactions of the other house pets when they see their buddies immortalized for the first time. Like Symba here, trying to figure out what’s wrong with her old friend, Snuffy.
Hahahaha, Symba is totally traumatized for life…HILARIOUS!
Caution, this may bring a tear to your eye, a cockateil, serenading its departed love.
