I was thinking in terms of keeping potential predators and scavengers away since this implies they live in a rural area. A lot of people don't bury their pets deep enough. Granted, I should have said "potentially safer" rather than just "safer" (or just left that out entirely). Should've explained better, I apologize.
I would suggest burying it. If you are worried about predators digging it up, place some rocks on top of the body before covering it with dirt. Oh, and bury it deep, at least 3 feet or so. maybe under a nice tree? And be quick about it, you really don't want to have to handle a rotting corpse..
I’ve put deceased pets in the freezer—or put it outside if you are in a colder climate..
It's not like it's going to completely decompose over the course of ten hours. The wait will be fine. Also, sorry to your parents for their loss.
Seriously? Initial decomp is bad. A dog is going to stink in ten hours. You won't want to be carrying it around either.
