Im sorry to hear that. : (
If you can’t burry him then there are other ways to deal with his body. Ask a vet about it, he or she can help you out more. Do it soon, because it doesn’t get pretty when a deceased body starts to rot.

Wait till he starts to decompose then I don't think he'll be so beautiful.

Get someone else to do that for you. It's not right to bury what you raised yourself.

You could always have him cremated. Thats what my family does. and then if you feel like you need to you can keep the box with his ashes in it in your room. and always keep a picture of him next to your bed thats what i do

I'm so sorry for your loss! Unfortunately you can't keep him there, you will have to bury him, maybe you can have a funeral? It is very heart breaking to lose a pet! I remember losing my hamster when I was very young and I was devastated! Once I was in vacation and my grandmother was pet-sitting for our fish and he passed away :( we were very upset! It is not healthy for you to keep your dog there, not healthy physically since he has passed and I think it probably causes a lot of germs and bacteria, not sure though but i'd think it could cause health problems for you having him there, and it's not healthy mentally since it will only make it harder for you. Remember he is in a better place now, he is in perfect peace and not suffering. Another thing you could do, and I do not like this idea for myself, but I know that that people have done it when their pets pass away, is you could go to a taxidermist (I think it's called that) and they can make it so you can safely keep him in your house, it would be like how people have deers on their wall, but it would be your dogs body. also I think there is a company that you send your pets picture to them and they send you a little statue or maybe it's a stuffed animal that looks like your pet, I saw it on pinterest but I'm not sure if that's what it was exactly

sorry about your loss :(
you say that you can't bury him. if its a case that you can't find a spot right now and you hope to do so soon but need time to find one.... a temporary alternative is to freeze the body in the deep freezer, wrapped well in plastic until you can find a plot for him.

~ sigh~ sorry again for your loss....

I've only had 4 dogs in my lifetime. The last one I had to put to sleep on May 28th. A sad day for me. I have had all of my dogs cremated, except for the first one. I was too young and my parents wouldn't let me. So I keep them in my apartment and they move where I move. When I go, I too will be cremated and our ashes will be scattered to the 4 winds. Sorry that you had to go through that, but you still have fond memories.
