"After our first dog, Cadie, died, it took a long time for my wife and me to bring another dog into our lives. Cadie was smart and active, protective and loyal, but mostly she was our beloved first child. My wife adopted her when we were in college. Cadie lived nineteen years before my two young boys and I, connected by phone with my wife at work, listened to Cadie take her last breaths on the floor of our bedroom. There would never be another like her; she was my wife's other soul mate. I wish I had found this beautiful message from Blemie to share with my wife then. It would have been salve for both our hurts." ―Phil Zuckerman, Publisher --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

It is clear that Eugene O'Neill truly had a special bond with at least one dog.
This book is a good companion to the book "I Will Always Love You" written by Hans Wilheim.
Every time I have given this to someone, they call or write and say essentially the same thing: 'I read this once, and cried my eyes out. Then, I read it again, and it was amazingly healing.". The illustrations are beautiful, as well.
We did purchase a 6 week old OES puppy. He is now 15 weeks old and the charm of our lives. If I did not know any better, I would suspect that our old OES came back to us as this puppy! Life is Good when you have wonderful companions...
