Pet Cemetery

This is very cool. I'm glad that my friends from Cincinatti, OH (late of the suburbs of Lansing, MI) & I aren't the only one with places in the ground for our pets.
Even in ancient Peru, it seems dogs were a man's best friend. Peruvian investigators have discovered a pre-Columbian culture of dog lovers who built pet cemeteries and buried their pets with warm blankets and even treats for the afterlife.

"They are dogs that were thanked and recognized for their social and familial contribution," anthropologist Sonia Guillen said. "These dogs were not sacrificed."
