The state will allow pet cemeteries in New York to accept the cremated remains of the owners who wish to be buried along with their pets.

Bizarre and extremely sad.
I prefer the company of my dog to most people I know.
Well, who wouldn't?
Bizarre and extremely sad covers ever so much of “todays” news....
will pets remains now be accepted at human cemeteries.
Me too. I think it’s a great idea.
1. True enough. I think you might be able to say that it covers MOST of human nature news.
2. Oh yes, of course, if they are put with an owner. I do doubt that Catholic cemeteries will allow this. What a bunch of killjoys. (humor)
There are several options:
It must be really cheap compared to human burial plots. Or the only option to be buried in a nice location at an affordable price.
A lot of cat ladies probably have no one else to be buried with.
The pet cemetery may be doing this to guarantee the right to stay regardless of zoning, and possibly a source of long term revenue. For example, they may continue getting money for 30 years after Fluffy is buried, if the owner will be buried there, too.
Yes Human nature seems to be distilling itself into an ever more potent and toxic mix....
I see the rise in the number of Mouseliums....
It seems that way.
Since we were "only" one billion at 1800 and are now six billion and counting, the additional souls make us seem a worse species.
Personally though, I think that we are exactly the same as Adam and Eve, though with the addition of high tech and a more public (though not novel) mix of Adam and Steve.
Yup, Pet Sematery starring John Kerry, I mean Fred Gwynne.
I think in the original book the character Louis Creed (?)
signs the check-in book at a motel as Joey Ramone...and in the movie of course, we have the theme song...
I worked part-time at a very prominent pet cemetary during two summers in High School. Mixing cement, setting headstone and cutting grass. Hot, heavy work kept you in shape for the coming athletic seasons.
The money spent on services would bogle your mind. Marble statues, silk-lined, brass embelished polished caskets were common. Got $10 spot tip to act as a pall-bearer!
There was one curious gentleman who spoke to his departed on a daily basis, and brought his “friend” in a brass urn so they could all be together. Could not cut the grass near that plot. He would do it with hand trimmers.
If it makes them happy, be together-forever with Fido.
You’d probably get better neighbors.

Yes I think we hear and read about a lot more of whats always been going on....in most instances of human “endeavor”
