More About the Author

Diane Pomerance received her Ph.D. in Communications from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor She has also been certified as a Grief Recovery Specialist from the internationally recognized Grief Recovery Institute. She counsels those grieving from any loss; however she has a special interest in helping those mourning the loss of a beloved animal companion. The loss of a pet can be devastating to adults as well as children.

Dr. Pomerance is the author of seven nonfiction books about animals and the roles they play in our lives and in our world. Her first book was WHEN YOUR PET DIES designed to help children cope with and recover from grief over the loss of a pet. Her next book was ANIMAL COMPANIONS: YOUR FRIENDS, TEACHERS & GUIDES which encourages children to respect and appreciate animals. ANIMAL COMPANIONS IN OUR HEARTS, OUR LIVES & OUR WORLD came next and urges children to recognize that all life is meaningful and purposeful, and that all creation is interconnected and interdependent.

This book was followed by ANIMAL ELDERS: CARING ABOUT OUR AGING ANIMAL COMPANIONS which observes the many life lessons we can learn from our aging and elderly animals and how similar their aging process is to our own.PET PARENTHOOD came next and is designed to help potential "pet parents" decide whether to adopt a pet and if so, how to find the one best suited to their lifestyle and budgets. FINDING PEACE AFTER THE LOSS OF A LOVED ANIMAL COMPANION helps people of all ages cope with and recover from grief and to further understand the unique and powerful bond that exists between humans and animals. OUR RESCUE DOG FAMILY ALBUM is Dr. Pomerance's seventh book and, featuring beautiful color photographs, is an homage and tribute to the over forty dogs she has rescued, adopted and rehabilitated. The book shares the often sad and poignant stories of the dogs she came to know and love.

Dr. Pomerance has appeared as a featured guest on numerous television and radio programs such as MSNBC, WEBMD.COM, CNN Headline News, Fox & Friends, Fox News, Hallmark Channel, Montel Williams, The Daily Buzz and Lifetime TV. She has also authored hundreds of articles and been interviewed in many magazines including Martha Stewart Living, Redbook, Woman's World, Dog Fancy, Quick & Simple, etc.

Dr. Pomerance is passionate about animals and their welfare. She is a member of many animal welfare and environmental organizations and is actively involved in worldwide conservation efforts.

I have read several books and articles on experiencing grief from the loss of a beloved animal. No book has brought as much hope and a feeling of calmness to me as Ms. Pomerance's "When Your Pet Dies". Written primarily for children, it is as helpful and reassuring to adults as it will be to children. Parents should feel comfortable in allowing their children to read this book. Parents should read it as well. It traces a very realistic picture, both figuratively, as well factually, of the process that humans go through during the life of their beloved pet. The pictures in the book, done by a 13 year old girl, are both colorful and beautiful. They add a great deal to this journey through life into death. I have reread it many times, enjoying it more each time. I highly recommend this book to anyone going through the grief related to pet loss.

"When Your Pet Dies" may have been written for children, but this beautifully written book should help people of all ages who have lost a beloved animal companion.
Accompanied by lovely illustrations(obviously the work of a youngster!) that help to clarify the text, it contains important information about the grieving process and makes it clear that grief is OK and normal. It should help children to identify their feelings and begin the process of recovery.
As a special education teacher and educator, I highly recommend this eloquently written book for children(and their parents)who have had the devastating experience of losing a beloved pet.

Format: Paperback
Not only does this beautifully written book help children who have suffered a major loss, it can also help adults. In much of today's society losing a pet is not considered a major loss. But to many people, it's a catastropic event with no one to share it with who understands. It's apparent the author does not only understand but has learned the way through this extremely difficult time.
This is a wonderful tool to help get through your grief of a beloved companion's death, no matter what your age.
