Format: Paperback
This is a beautiful book for anyone who has ever loved and lost...a pet. The author's epistolary effort to help herself move on from her grief after the death of her dog starts her on a journey of spiritual discovery that borrows from various disciplines including yoga, Buddhist meditation, and traditional Catholic observances.

The depth of feeling for our pets can never be underestimated, nor can the ability of a special animal to change our lives completely. In the eyes of his mama, Pushkin the beagle was that special enlightened soul, and mama created something inspirational that honors him well.

I confess there were moments when I bawled, and the author's emotional path to healing is raw, real, sometimes messy - because emotions generally are - but really, it's not an intentionally sad read. There is light shining through each page, and her determination to honor Pushkin's spirit makes it a positive and uplifting story. It's interesting this is under "animal care" when it could just as easily be under personal growth. I think many people will find this book just as self-helpful as most of what's on the self-help shelf (that's not saying much, I suppose).

People who have said goodbye to a pet will find much to relate to. It feels like the world is telling us "get over it" or "it's only an animal," or worse, we tell ourselves those things. People sympathize by saying "you'll get another one" as if that'll stop the suffering. We physically ache from longing to feel that beloved furry body again. We judge ourselves and wonder if we're normal, wonder how we "should" be feeling, wonder if the pain will ever go away. As the book illustrates, it never hurts any less...it just hurts less often.

(I was privileged to get a copy of this book from the author. I did not purchase on Amazon.)

These letters are truly inspirational. They cover a wide range of subjects as Sharon struggles to come to terms with the death of her beloved beagle. Do we attribute too much wisdom to our pets? Or not enough? Pushkin inspired his owner/mom and these letters can now help us all to be inspired by him too.

This doggie mom writes letters to her beloved Beagle after he crosses the Rainbow Bridge. I've lost pets in the past and I can relate to the loss. Some of the letters are inspiring but some are sad. I pray for this mom to feel peace from writing this book.

It's an okay book, but it overwhelmingly reflects the personal relationship between the author & Pushkin -- so much so that's its hard to generalize to others' experiences w/ their loss of a beloved beagle. When my beagle passed away suddenly & unexpectedly, a friend recommended this book, so I bought it. However, 6 months later, I'm still not far into the book. It's a beautiful journal of her 40 days (I think I'm somewhere near day 15 thus far) through Lent, but much too personal (between her & Pushkin) -- the book would best be read by her as a private journal.
