'Sky Hill Pet Cemetary' - 1949. Benji, Morty, Duffy Chesney, Calvin and Rusty, are some of the well loved dogs, whose running & sniffing days are over.

Tombstones of few of buried dogs at Sky Hill Pet Cemetery.

I specially liked the grave of the Jewish dog Duffy Chesney. He died just around the the time to have Bar Mitzvah ;-)

The area was a home of a veterinarian Mr. Alan Secord and his wife Ingeborg.

Sky Hills Pet Cemetery became a home for his patients, who did not make it.

He started the pet cemetery on his property, when his cocker spaniel died. Since then animals from all over North America have been brought there by their grieving owners. Mostly dogs are buried here, but the list includes cats, budgies, even a horse and an 81 year old parrot.

How would you name a Jewish dog??.

I would name him Kelev. It means dog in Hebrew, but it is not mentioned in the list.

Very nice shot!

Like.

Friendly greetings from Greece-Piraeus.

Most of the time, people bury the pets in the corner of the garden. This is quite unusual find.

Cimetière des Chiens-be temetett híres állatok Több, mint 40.000 eltemetett kisállattal (és nem csupán kutyákról van szó; nagyon sok macskát, néhány kígyót, és még egy lovat is temettek ide), egyáltalán nem meglepő, hogy a Cimetière des Chiens néhány híres kutyának is a végső nyughelye. A legismertebb ide temetett kutya, kétségtelenül a hírhedt Rin Tin Tin. Ez a kutya foglyul ejtette az amerikaiak szívét, azonban visszahozták hazájába, hogy végső nyugalomba helyezzék. Véleményem szerint ő az egyetlen kutya, amelyik a Cimetière des Chiensbe van eltemetve és, aki saját csillagot kapott a hollywoodi hírességek sétányán. Sok más híres kedvenc, tulajdonosaik révén váltak híressé: Camille Saint-Saëns, zeneszerző és a színész / rendező Sacha Guitry kedvence, valamint a temető társ-alapítójának, Marguerite Durand színésznőnek az oroszlánja (!). A temető bejáratánál áll Barry a bernáthegyi emlékműve . Ez a hegyi mentő kutya, életében negyven embert mentett meg és emlékszobrának felirata szerint 1814-ben szerint hunyt el.

Az állattemető látogatása A temető jelenlegi tulajdonosai azt állították, hogy a kicsi turisztikai forgalom miatt, sor kerülhet a temető bezárására, hiszen nem rendelkeznek elegendő bevétellel a fenntartásához. Tehát látogass el a Cimetière des Chiensbe!

Hmmm good thinking of Mr. Alan Secord.... especially when he's not so good at his job. In Dutch we have a proverb saying: "The knife cuts on both sides." which means that whatever one does he or she will always benefits from the situation.

R.I.P., Erik

Actually, he was one of the best. There is his old clinic in Toronto still named after him and rated as top pet clinic!

The dogs have it very good in this city. Many are better off than people.
