Looks good. Nice shape. Make sure you lable it if you go to use it. Don't want somebody popping it open just to see what's inside.

Very nice, I agree with labeling it. It would not be good if you put your pet in there and someone picked it up to see what it was and dropped it.

I've been thinking about a couple designs for this.... I would try to include a feature or something to lock the top on to keep people out and help against any accidents... any sort of label would take away from the beauty of the urn.
