Wow. Dogs are not animals that you should even think about doing taxidermy with.
And this is the picture. I don't think its the actual picture though.

Thanks.

I don't think it is either, really. It looks like they scammed it from somebody else for their "ad".

My bad. Added the pic again. But yes. Maybe civilization will end the world with all their great ideas.

My husband really loves one of our cats, and he keeps saying that when it dies, he's going to have it taxidermied (or whatever the term is).

I think he's kidding... at least he better be. Talk about creepy as hell.

haha, I always tell my other half that when he goes I am going to put him in a jar next to the urns of my old lab and very favorite cats. I, of course, am joking...he does not find it funny.

That's what I meant by "I don't think it's the real picture". I thought that was a dog I recognized as being a "current" dog, not somebody's, er, former Doberman that they taxidermied in Cooperstown, NY.

If that were one of mine, I'd be beyond PISSED that someone jacked my photo to advertise something so creepy on CL.

I think it's indi...the name rings a bell and I know that picture and dog have been brought up before.

I'd be pretty upset if my dog was being used in this creepy ad.

I'm new at this & suck at recognizing dogs (sometimes including my own) - but I'm certain I've seen that dog's picture on this site & it was alive, not stuffed.

I wouldn't judge someone for stuffing their pet without knowing them. People have all perspectives that might make sense if they could explain the whys or get into their head.

I would imagine that a person would have to have quite a sense of humor about their pet and have been greatly attached to them as good taxidermy is NOT cheap.

That said there have been commissions if i recall correctly to the artist Jessica Joslin for turning deceased *beloved* pets into permanent works of art using the animal's skeleton.
I think those are quite beautiful but again...of all my pets I don't think I was ever of the mindset of a sense of humor enough about them or the means to go that route.

Everyone grieves in different ways. I can't judge as my mother & I took photos of my late grandmother because the mortuary did such a great job on her. Then fast forward a year or so I get an unmarked roll of film developed and there are a dozen photos of my grandmother. *sigh* It made me jump...We were in a lot of pain and shock tho, but loved her to pieces.

I would rather a pet be stuffed than dumped in a landfill or tossed on a pile to burn...


Although I'd be on a rampage if someone used a photo of my dog for an ad for a taxidermied doberman.
