Gary Steinborn worked very hard to create an art pottery urn that captures the playful spirit of our beloved dog family and friends. There are dogs of all types playing, jumping and sleeping around the urn. The Dog Urn is 5" high and holds a little over two cups or 500 cc's of volume. It holds the ashes of up to a medium size dog (45 pounds). The lid is secured with a small amount of museum wax which is sent with the urn, or you can glue it on. Please note that if the urn does not meet your needs for some reason, you can ship it back and I will refund your purchase.
