Post subject:  Which pet cosmetic buffs are persistent?

I've just leveled my old hunter up to level 110 and found that I still have a bunch of pets with visual effects in my stable.

Does anyone know which (if any) cosmetic buffs persist through pet death? (I know that all will be lost during arena and timewalking).
The below list are the pets I have:

Princess (boar with pink bow)
The Lone Hunter (wolf with sword)
Silt Crawler holding bottle
Fire Roc with flame sparkles
Consumed Thistle Bear (purple cloud)
Infested Bear (green cloud)
Wolf with similar cloud to Infested Bear (not sure of the source)
Ghostpaw Runner (ghost wolf form)
Deviate Plainstrider (blue sparkles)
Crab with green/fel flames (not sure of the source)
Ashmane Boar (blue dust)

Thanks in advance for any help at all.

None. :| Only weird pets that stay weird are the baby trikes, slimes/ghost crocs, and color changing hyenas, all other scan and will loose their special effects. :mrgreen:

Lone Hunter and Consumed Thistle all keep after death. The rest lose them as far as I remember.

Death isn't what you have to worry about though, it's Time Walking. They remove you and your pets buffs, including the visual ones http://forums.wow-petopia.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=23407&hilit=visual :mrgreen:

What Rawr said. Pretty much, it's only safe to take them out in town, admire them, then put them back.

He said he already knew all that in the OP, sillies ;) He was just asking about the death.

Thank you very much for the replies, I likely won't ever use these pets other than for show but I wanted to confirm which COULD be used if I wanted to in future.
Also, thanks for the reminder about timewalking I was aware of it but I know it has caught a bunch of people out.

Yeah, things like that (and every so often reports of pets losing their appearance buffs mysteriously while out questing) have me keep my sha-crocolisk safely stabled pretty much all the time. It's a shame I don't get to see him often, but I really like the look and would hate to discover some random interaction that might wipe it. I just pull him out from time to time to confirm he's still got it, admire him, then tuck him away again. :) It's nice to see people that still have theirs though! That was a wild time on these forums when those were first discovered, it was really fun I have to admit, even though the instability is unfortunate.
