由於社會結構改變與人際間感情逐漸變得薄弱與疏離，寵物逐漸成為許多人撫慰心靈空虛的陪伴對象，及感情上的寄託，進而使得寵物在人們心目中的地位提升、與寵物有關的消費行為也因應而生。隨著寵物地位提升與寵物消費觀念普及，當飼主面臨到寵物死亡或消失事件時，內心中對於處理與調適悲傷的需求也逐漸增加。根據研究文獻發現，當飼主在遭逢與寵物間依附關係斷裂時，往往必須經歷一段漫長的悲傷調適歷程，才能重新與生活軌道建立連結，而透過追思與紀念的過程，引導生者談論逝者的過往種種，或是整理逝者有紀念性的物品，都有助於調適悲傷的情緒。 當一般人面臨寵物死亡時，往往僅能採取一些殯葬的行為與儀式來追思寵物，然而這些行為及儀式僅能協助飼主處理寵物遺體，或是徒具形式，卻無法協助飼主調適悲傷的情緒；而市面上標榜與寵物有相關的消費商品雖已不勝枚舉，然而現今環境中卻少有真正考量到飼主的心理層面與回憶情感而加以製作的｢寵物紀念物品」。有鑒於此，研究者希望能設計出一系列具有紀念意義與情感價值的寵物紀念物品，並建立一套嚴謹的、可供後續研究者依循的寵物紀念物品創作模式。 本研究採用個案研究的方式，針對寵物仍在世、且能提供許多與寵物相處經驗之實體資料的特定飼主進行深度訪談，並以敘事研究法作為研究方法，透過訪談、編碼、分析出個別事件後，再將個別事件聚集、形成主題、進行詮釋並賦予意義的過程，建構出一套理解飼主飼養寵物經驗的模式，並從訪談資料中，抽取出具有特殊紀念性物件與事件等意義單元，作為創作要素，融入療癒系特質與互動設計概念，創作出九組具有情感價值的寵物紀念物品。本研究僅針對寵物紀念物品由概念形成到產出成品之過程進行探討，期能提供後續相關領域研究者進行研究與創作參考，並依此開發出更多不同類型的紀念商品。
Because of social structure change and because interpersonal relationships have become gradually weaker and fewer, the pet has become for many people a way to comfort the mind and gradually fill the void, and due to the sentimental change, then elevates the pet in people’s minds, causing people to change their pet related consumer behavior. Along with the mental elevation and the pet expense idea, when pets’ owners are faced with the pets’ death or disappearance, their innermost feelings become gradually stronger regarding the adjustment and the sadness of the loss. It has been discovered from the related research that when the pet owners’ relationship ends with their pet, they often must experience a time of long sadness, but can also get readjusted to a normal emotional state again by having events that help commemorate the pet’s life, such as a funeral or other event, which will allow for discussion about the loss, and which will help them cope with the sadness they are feeling. When an average person is faced with a pet’s death, they often can only have some sort of funeral and burial, as well as a ceremony to remember the pet; however, these methods can only assist the pet owner to process the pet remains, but, in actuality, it is unable to assist the pet owner in adjusting and adapting with the sadness. Although the current market is flooded with pet related commodities, already too numerous to cite individually, in the current market it is, however, truly unusual to consider the pet’s owners psychological phase and to manufacture souvenirs about their pets, which may be used as mental healing “pet commemoration goods”. Taking this into consideration, the researcher hoped to design a series of memorable and sentimental pet commemoration goods and to create a structure for others to design similar products using the research. This research uses the case study the way, was still alive in view of the pet,and can provide many are together entity of material the experience specific pet owner with the pet to carry on the depth interview, and the narrative methodology take the research technique. Researcher interviewed pets’ owners, documented the dialogues, and analyzed individual events. The researcher gathered authentic events, formed the main subject, interpreted and gave meaning to the event.It would form a pattern to understand the pets’ owners’ experiences.Extracting special commemorative information from the interview data is essential to the creation. Also important is adding healing and interactive concepts to create 9 different sets of pet commemoration goods. The researcher hopes to provide the information needed for others to use in the development and creation of other types of pet commemoration goods.
