We didn’t opt to bring Melvin’s body home to bury mainly because we live in an apartment and don’t really have a yard. We also didn’t opt for keeping his ashes, but we did bring home his collar though I wasn’t sure what we’d do with it.
Then I looked up and saw the clock I got for my birthday this past August and the answer was obvious:
I should probably tighten it up a bit so it doesn’t look quite so ridiculous. It was a spur of the moment thing. I don’t know how long I’ll keep it there, but for right now it’s in the right place.
