I had two dogs buried there and coulda sworn it was located somewhere on Dixon Ave/Rock Island Rd/Hwy 16 between Rock Falls and Dixon. I drove that stretch of road and didn't see it. Anyone know where it is?

If you're in Rock Falls, the turn at Hardee's with the road going towards Nelson is where I thought the pet cemetery was. Not only could I not find it, I didn't see the house that was next to it either.

The pet cemetary is still there, located on Dixon Ave./Rock Island Blacktop. The house that used to be there burnt down years ago and a new house was put up, so the house may not be in the exact same spot. Im not sure how many miles out it is on Dixon Ave. but im guessing its about half way to Dixon. There is a row of 4 or 5 houses on the left and it is the next to the last house(as if you were heading towards Dixon).It is a gray one story home.The people that live there now still maintain the cemetary and keep it mowed. It may be further off the road than you remember so you may need to pull in their driveway to actually find it.
