Dr. Marty Becker, resident veterinarian on ABC’s Good Morning America
Allen and Linda Anderson’s book gives us permission to acknowledge the intense bond we have with our animal companions and the deep loss we can experience after their deaths. It provides helpful stories, exercises, and memorial services respecting a variety of beliefs. Infused with kindness, their work offers us help, hope, and a rainbow during the storm. I have learned from it and will celebrate and share it.”
The Reverend Mary Piper, Episcopal priest and chaplain, cofounder of the pet loss support program at Heart of the Valley Humane Society in Bozeman, Montana
This masterful and beautiful book is rich with wisdom, inspiration, and sound advice....With sensitivity and compassion as well as practical information, the Andersons gently and deftly guide us through the complex labyrinth of emotions associated with grief. I highly recommend this thoughtful, illuminating, and comforting book.”
Diane Pomerance, PhD, creator and director of the Pet Grief Counseling Program, SPCA of Texas, and author of When Your Pet Dies

The book is very sensitive to the pet owner's needs, no matter how your pet left you. I recommend this book to anyone dealing with the loss of a pet. I also went to the book's website and signed the guestbook, the next day I received a personal e-mail from the authors. They are very thoughtful people.
I highly recommend this book to anybody who is grieving for a dear animal companion, to anybody whose heart is hurting for the loss of a beloved animal companion.
The author's words are so wise, the exercises are so helpful.
This book is a gem, a treasure.
