From The Miami Herald:

_Sen. Jim King’s best friend, a black Labrador retriever named Valentine, was there when he first campaigned for office and there through the deaths of his parents.

So King wants her there when he dies, her ashes ensconced alongside him in his casket.

But in most of Florida’s licensed cemeteries, that’s not allowed — and King wants it changed. . . .

Allowing cremated pets to be buried with their owners is just one possibility lawmakers are pondering in the industry called “death care.”_

Our hunting dogs are with us for some of the best days of our lives. Should they be allowed to be with us in death, too? Would you want to be buried with your dog’s ashes?
