I am so thankful that this book is available. When my dog Shasha became terminally ill with cancer and had to be put to sleep, the vet suggested this book to me. It was through my tears that I read the book and it was through the pages of the book that I was able to come to grips with my loss. As all pet lovers know, our pets are as valuable and important to us as any other family member. The writers have performed a great public service by making this book available. I thank you Herb and Mary for helping me when I needed it. I shall save the book and pass it on to anyone who may find themselves in need of it.

This little book is only 31 pages in length, but it packs a lot of support and understanding within it's pages. Beautiful pencil-drawn illustrations accompany each "chapter". The authors have included brief stories from others as a spring-board into understanding the different phases all grieving pet owners go through.
One bit of comfort addresses the feeling a pet owner may have about being a "bad owner" for not preventing their pet's death.(As in an accident.) I'm quoting...."Although your thoughts may be filled with regrets, in your heart you know that you would never have intentionally harmed your pet. Once you acknowledge that-once you really embrace that fact-you can begin to forgive yourself. When you are forgiving with yourself, your guilt will lessen and your grief will begin to heal."
If you are looking for solace in a nutshell, or want to give a gift of understanding to someone who is hurting, this is a wonderful choice.

For a book with only 31 pages to say volumes is an understatement. Written with compassion, Love, and Tenderness. It will help any animal lover through the grieving process of a loosing a friend.

This book although small is such a powerful read for someone who has lost a pet. We lost our dog unexpectedly and as I went through each stage of grief and all of the emotions, this book was spot on and normalized all of the feelings that I was having. It gave me a sense of peace eventually and helped me through such a difficult time. In my dog's memory we actually purchased 100 copies of this book and donated them to our local Veterinarian's office for other people who has to say goodbye to their pets too.

I suggested that our veterinarian's office carry this small booklet and hand it out to clients who lose their pet. If you are like us, you consider your pet part of the family. This booklet will help you get through those sad days.
