Concerned dog mom
Take the body to a vet for cremation.

We have remains of 3 of our furkids. Their cremains will be mixed with ours when we join them.

There are pet creamation services most everywhere. They will handle everything, including pickup, if you want. Or they will educate you in how to handle and bring to them.

If Off Grid

All the recommendations above are Spot On, Cremation is the best, Burying them in the wild increase the chances of your Loved One being dug up and scavenged are high.
But what to do if it's not a week day, this is my recommendation for taking care of your Loved One.
If you are Off Grid, wrap your Loved One in their favorite blanket, place them in a plastic bag. If you have a cooler, place them in the cooler and Ice Them Down
No cooler, ice them down in the bag. If you don't have ice, most places that carry ice are within an an hour drive, most likely closer. The most important thing to do is Put Them In Your Car, Truck or Your Rig as wild animals will be attracted to the scent. Some people think they will be fine outside, Don't Count On It.
In this part of the country (Rural Arizona), Vets will have an after hours phone contact (I refer to Weekend/Holidays), where they will open up to receive your Loved One.
I hope with all my heart you never have this happen On The Road, For All Who Have Had Their Loved Ones Cross The Bridge, I Hope The Wonderful Memories Out Weight The Sorrow.

I also agree with cremation. We have three of ours currently on a shelf in urns that are actually their water dish. I had a local glass guy cut a piece of glass to fit the bowl. I have a picture of each one sealed under the glass.

The wife and I agreed whichever one of us goes first gets our guys buried with them. That way we don't have to worry that they will just get discarded. Although I know our daughter would take care of things we just don't want to leave her with more to do.

We too recently lost our Irwin, an almost 17 year old Beagle. We were at home and I had a vet come to our house and administer the drugs to put him down as he hated with a passion going to the vet's. She told me of a service they provide where he would be cremated and his ashes would be mixed with other animals that were also cremated. Then they have a service where the cremains are respectfully and reverently spread on the Slopes of the North Cascades Mountains. I really liked that idea until we cross the rainbow bridge together.

Sorry for your loss of Irwin - We LOVE them so very much.
