The state of New York has passed a new law that will surely be good news to pet lovers who want to be with their faithful companions even after passing away.This new law allows pets, not limited to cats and dogs, to be buried alongside their owners in cemeteries, only excluding religious ones and a few others. Before this rule, there were relatively few possibilities for folks who wished to take a nap next to their dogs. They had to be interred in pet cemetery, which is a difficult process, or someone had to smuggle their pets into ordinary graves. Recently, it was discovered in a pet cemetery in Westchester county that every year, at least five people prefer to be buried next to their animals. That figure shows how many pet owners in New York will be pleased by this rule, and many individuals in other states would undoubtedly welcome having the same choice one day.
