Large Personalized Pet Memory Box / Urn with Name and Quote or Poem


This is an extra large size custom memory box, perfect for storing precious keepsakes and/or contained ashes for larger dogs and other loved family pets. We know it is no easy thing to lose your best friend.

Each box is handcrafted in our shop from your choice of wood. Pine is finished with your stain selection, and our premium woods (walnut, mahogany, cherry and aromatic cedar) are hand rubbed with mineral oil. The top of the lid is engraved with a name, a special quote or short poem, and years of life.

The front of the box can hold a 5x7 photo, which can be inserted and removed from the inside of the box, just like a picture frame. This piece is not glass but clear acrylic, so there is little danger of breakage. If you would like to insert your own photo when you receive the box, select the "No photo insert" option from the dropdown menu. See below for notes on our special photo print options.

If you would like a quote or short poem included on the box, please enter the full text - if no quote is included, we will assume you don't want a quote engraved. 300 characters or less is recommended for the quote.
Be sure to double check your spelling, dates, etc - we sometimes just copy/paste exactly what you write.

We will engrave your text in the same layout and fonts as shown unless requested otherwise.
By request, we can include cat/dog pawprint symbols or hearts on the sides of the name if you would like - just select that option when you check out.

***We ask that you please don’t use emojis in your personalization, as they don’t show up on our order sheets, and you may not end up getting the symbols you want. 

Please note that ashes should be in a durable bag or container before resting in the box as it is not airtight.

"Rose" box pictured in the main photo is Walnut wood with a birch wood photo print.
"Wilbur" box is also Walnut wood.
"Tanner" box is Pine - Medium stain.

Walnut, Cherry and Mahogany are somewhat unlikely to have knots, but as all of our boxes are made of real wood, it's not impossible for them to have natural flaws. Likewise, each box may have variances in wood grain or color as every tree is unique.
Pine wood is a more rustic option and has the possibility of knots.
Cedar will almost certainly have knots; it features red, pink and white wood tones with a very aromatic smell.

*Photo Options:
Insert your own photo when you receive the box; select “No photo insert” to receive the acrylic pane with wood backing only.

Photo print choices:
You have the option to send us a photo of your beloved pet and we can print it directly on a wood insert using state-of-the-art, permanent dye sublimation.

See photos for examples - the White background will print true-to-color, while the Birch wood background will have the wood grain visible through the photo. Both wood photo prints are removable, just like a photo, so you can replace it in the future if you wish.

Beautiful wood and engraving. Brought tears to my eyes. Plenty of room for my boy's ashes, collars, and favorite toys.

Pet Memory Box

It is just wonderful. Thank you for packing it so good. We really like.

Absolutely Gorgeous!

I received my order yesterday after some mixups with FedEx. I cried when I opened the box because it is more beautiful than I imagined. There’s room for my dog’s bowl, collar, harness and pictures. I really encourage you to use this company when you’re ready to get memories together for your pet.
