This book was so incredibly helpful. I loved that it was not written by a doctor, therapist or any other "trained professional" but rather from the point of view of a "regular" person. One who clearly knows what it means to TRULEY love their dog with their whole being. Many times I've been accused of (and completely embraced) that my relationship with my dog was "weird" or "too much". He was not just a dog, a pet or even a pal, he was my true, soul-completing companion and his loss is shattering to me. This book is written from that point of view. Not a "here's what to do to heal yourself" point of view, but a "this is how it hurt(s) ME (and other people) maybe this is how it hurts for you, too", and I found that incredibly helpful. So, so many times through this book I found myself nodding in understanding and thinking "that's me" or "that's Kaiser (my dog)", crying in mutual grief over others situations but most of all I just found myself feeling validated. Validated that my love for my dog was not "weird" or "too much". That my devastation at his loss is not "over the top" or something I shouldn't be feeling. Grateful that someone else out there had a connection with their pet that was as bone and soul deep as mine and could relate to the total loss I'm feeling. This book provides information from "real" people and it connects on a very "real" level with their stories of love and loss and the aftermath of losing something you love so deeply. You will read it and you will cry, not because its telling you sad stories, but because you will understand and be able to relate to your own love and loss. It gives very realistic ideas on coming to terms with, coping and moving on without your best friend, again from the point of view of "regular" people and not clinicians. Thank you so much for writing this book - it was exactly what I needed and I will continue to go back to it as I cope.
