Michigan War Dog Memorial

LYON TOWNSHIP, MICH. — In a forgotten plot called Happy Hunting Grounds in Lyon Twp Michigan, there is an old pet cemetery that is also home to fallen canine veterans that was nearly reclaimed by nature as years of neglect for the unsung heroes let overgrowth consume it’s former grandeur. It started as a thick forest overgrown & THICK with underbrush.

The Michigan War Dog Memorial held a celebration to honor all dogs of service over the world and not just in Michigan Phil Weitlauf, Director of the Michigan War Dog Memorial.

It’s a day that happened on March 13th, 1942 when the Quartermaster was given the order to secure dogs for defense. The ceremony included a flag line, taps and a choral  salute by service dogs who howled on command.

Today the War Dog Memorial serves as the final resting place for any dog of service including military, K9 police force members and all those who serve and protect.

We hope you’ve been able to find what you are looking for. We at Pet Memorials would also like to encourage you to take some time to browse the Michigan Pet Cemeteries & Crematories some of the other aspects of our blog.

Michigan Pet Cemeteries & Crematories Directory

Cremation fills a specific purpose from pet cemeteries in that it offers the family the option of keeping the deceased pet close to them, should they so  choose

The scattering of cremains is also a common way for a family to pay tribute to their loved one and is often done in an informal ceremony at one of the pet’s favorite places, like a dog park, hiking trail or out on the lake.

You’d also probably be surprised how many pet owners choose to keep their dog’s cremains in their automobiles because, well, dogs love car rides.
