Gravestones for owners' beloved pets in the Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in Hartsdale in Westchester County New York State on Sunday, September 22, 2013. The Hartsdale Pet Cemetery is the first pet cemetery in the United States, started in 1896 and incorporated as a cemetery in 1914. Recently the NYS Division of Cemeteries had ordered animal cemeteries in the state to stop the internment of pet owners' ashes with their pets but after the uproar the order was reversed as long as the cemetery was not charging the owners for the human internment. There are approximately 500 people already interned amongst the over 80,000 dogs, cats and other pets.  (© Richard B. Levine)
