Does anyone know if it would be allowed to bury a family pet alongside a loved one, each in his own plot? Thanks!

Would the cemetary allow it? Most cemetaries are for people or pets, not both.

Depends on the local laws. In Greene Co., Missouri, the county owns all cemeteries, which are only to be used for people. However, one funeral home has obtained a licence to bury pets on their property (they own several acres). Cemeteries are a local matter, so you'll have to ask at your county courthouse.
