OUTTAKES

Going In Style

March 16, 1986|Sue Facter

Remember that cylindrical space coffin that bore the body of Spock in "Star Treks" II and III?

Now your pet can go out the same way.

Pet Rest, a Lima, Ohio-based animal burial service, offers a black, sleek, cylindrical plastic receptacle that comes in four sizes. It's the brainchild of Sandy and Mike McCormack, parents of a 14-year-old Trekkie son. They got the idea after burying three deceased family pets in less style, followed by Sandy's dream about Spock's coffin.

"There are only 1,200 pet cemeteries in this country, which isn't nearly enough," she said. "Now pets can be buried with some dignity and feeling right in your own back yard."
