Pine Ridge Pet Cemetery is the oldest in the US that’s run by an animal welfare group.  We originally came here because we read about a few celebrities’ pets being interred here, but it’s an impressive place so we stayed a while.  Some sections are especially old and showing their age.

There were 2 particular graves that we came here for, and all I had to do was turn around to find the first one:

Igloo was Admiral Richard Byrd’s terrier and was there on his expedition to the South Pole, hence the iceberg-shaped stone.

On the way down the path to try and find our second goal, we sidetracked quite a bit and just walked around.

After a while, we came across our next objective – Lizzie Borden‘s dogs are buried here as well.

We poked around a bit more, then headed for Rhode Island.

    Beautiful. I would love to visit this place! I can’t get over how old and well maintained some of the stones are. I hope people are respectful.
