That's not the weirdest freeze-dried thing people might keep in their home. There's a type of "green" cremation where the corpse is freeze-dried and then shaken until it's a powder, which people can then keep or spread (like ashes) as a kind of organic fertilizer.

How do they keep the dried body from absorbing moisture from the air and getting smelly? And how the fark are you going to clean it? Seems like this would work best if the pet was placed in an inert case, somewhat like the guy who kept his wife in a glass coffin coffee table.

I'm a vet tech. Many years ago at my first job, there was a client who had his dog "stuffed". He carried it around with him. It was in a laying down position. It looked really farking weird just sitting there on the counter. :/

Its wierd, I mentioned just yesterday to my wife that I wanted to be freeze dried sitting up with a Gin and Tonic glass in my hand and one of our cats on my lap. Then they could bury me in a chair shaped coffin and my kids could refill my glass through a little feeder tube on my birthday......

Thats not creepy is it?

I looked that up, sadly it is an Urban Legend. If it wasn't I wouldn't have two ex-wives but two nice coffee tables.

It might take six months to prepare a 10-pound cat, said Anthony Eddy, owner of Anthony Eddy's Wildlife Studio in Slater, Mo. For an 80- or 90-pound dog, freeze-drying might take a year.

OK not that the story is weird enough, but that's uber-weird. I mean, after your dog died a YEAR prior and you handed his body over to the freezer guy and haven't seen him for a year, I'd think you'd be "over it" enough to realize this is a bad idea.

When I was young I thought the lyrics to "You're so vain" were
"crowds in my coffee, crowds in my coffee". Turns out that's not the lyric, but if it was, that might be some loud coffee.

Years ago, in Bloom County, Opus went to bed wearing a big sign saying "NO FREEZE DRYING" and praying "If I should die, Lord, for heaven's sake..."

The next strip, Opus wakes up, sees Bill the Cat stiff as a board on the mantle, and panics.

Sorry I don't have the art, but I bet someone does...

I have always told my wife that I wanted to be stuffed with my middle finger straight up in the air. That way I can still flip everyone off and she will have somewhere she can hang her hat or purse on. Plus if the stuff me in a sitting down position she can use me for the car pool lane.

As someone else pointed out, it was a fake/staged photo, that kind of preservation is not currently possible. V.I. Lenin's "body" needs daily, weekly, and monthly TLC to keep up appearances.

I bet with enough resources, if you planned ahead for it, you could arrange to be an organ donor and get preserved in just this way. The problem would be having enough cash to bribe someone into doing it.

Once you've been taxidermied, just get that mounted in airtight clear plastic and you're good for a while with very little maintenance. Tell me that some random Farker posed in a Han Solo pose wouldn't be an awesome conversation piece to keep some magazines and the remote controls on?

Yeah, the first rate irony of marketing a hyperbaric chamber plugged into the grid 24/7 for two years straight, as somehow 'green'.

I would LOL at that, but it's farking sick.

No surprise that a Vet would squeeze as much money out of a client by still requiring check-ups on a stuffed dog.
