These are pictures of my new life size bichon statue.  I love that he has his little back legs stretched out- Noah lays like this all the time.  I hope that I do not upset anyone but he is a container for cremains.  I am not planning on dieing anytime soon nor neither of my furbabies, but I want us all together.  My friend Terrell's husband just died and with their being involved with breeding bichons for so many years, she put his cremains in one.  Her friend ordered 2 for she and her husband and have already made arrangements for them to be buried in their cemetary plots.  Probably not the best topic for this joyful season, but I love my bichon and will keep him out all the time.  It is well made- it can be ordered as just a statue or a container.

Terrell found them on line and ordered 6 of them.  She said that the prices ranged from $250 to $700.  I think that the price was a little less-shipping was about $25 each so not sure what the group was.  I will see if I can find out what website she used if you are interested.

Wow, the statue is such a true replica of a Bichon, perfect, and the idea is so special.
Can you explain further as I am not fully aware of how cremains are given back to the family. You wrote,

So is this a storage container where you would put 3 separate containers of ashes, since it is highly likely that you will all pass at different times? I would like to kow where one gets something like this too.

The inside of the container is hollow and there is a hole in the bottom covered with a stopper.  Included was a tube of epoxy so that the cover can be sealed.  I have the cremains of my previous 2 dogs.  They are in small wooden boxes - with the cremains in plastic bag.  My mother's cremains were in a plastic bag inside of a container.  I think that it would be easiest to put the plastic bag in the container rather than try to open the bag and pour the cremains in.  I don't think that the dogs cremains will take up a lot of room.  Again I hope that no one is offeneded by this, but I just want to have something for my dogs at least.  Can only hope that my children will honor my wishes for my remains.  I will see if I can get the website from Terrell  if you are interested.

It is a beautiful statue and anything that brings comfort at a sad time is beyond value.

I hope you can all enjoy it together for many many years before it needs to be used for anything other than a thing of beauty,Alison

No offence taken Andrea. I think  it is beautiful.  Put it on display you could really put anything in it if you wished. cheerleader
