    Default Caesar's Urn

    finally could bring myself to work on Caesars Ashes
    I bought this decoy and drilled a hole in it and filled it with his ashes
    so he can always be right here with me i put his id tag underneath it and
    plan to have a medallion made and hung around the decoys neck
    Orange Julius Caesar MH still have a little polishing work on the bottom

    That is indeed very nice.
    Very thoughtful way to pay tribute to your dog.

    normally I answer to David but John is different to answer your question I bought it at cabelas and it seemed to be some type of fiber Glass and was hollow I drilled a 3/8 hole and a 1.5 inch hole about 1/8 inch deep to put in his tag and put in his ashes and sealed it up with epoxy putty and than filled it the recess with clear epoxy than under the label I found a small hole i had to fill up i did keep some of his ashes that I will spread at the places of his first master pass and his last, I love his son who got his Mh at 3 yrs old last year but Caesar was really special , Had a Heart as big as the out doors and did not know the meaning of the word Quit
