    The Egyptian Pharaoh lived around 1400 BC. He was the 7th Pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty. His strong point was military power and used it to quell uprisings as far as Syria. He was known to have his army's move extremely swiftly, catching opposing forces off guard. He once caught seven princes in one day in the area of Tikhsi. In his older age, he pointed more towards construction. He finished many undone temples and buildings that were though to be "unfinishable". These royal pets that were found in the tomb next to Amenhotep II in the Valley of the Kings.

    Their embalming technique was amazing and painstakingly difficult. The entire procedure could take a month back then. We've come a long way, but man were they so good at it.

    Their construction and medical techniques were advanced as hell. They also came up with the condom and high heel shoes. :D

    Has never come up at my funeral home and I don't think NY state law will allow it. I'm pretty sure its not allowed.

    What about a dog cremation remains ? That's what I thought you could do. I never really investigated.

    I've gotten all of my pets cremated when they've died. I want us all mixed together and then poured around a giant oak tree.

    Long island crematorium will cremate your pets remains no problem. And being buried with those remains is legal. Being buried in the same casket with an emablmed animal is not legal.
