"Meticulously researched, accurate information presented with real empathy. I hope owners and trainers read this and get their dogs help sooner rather than later should they be afflicted." -Jean Donaldson, author of The Culture Clash, founder of the Academy for Dog Trainers "Many families and all small-animal veterinarians will face the clinical signs of cognitive dysfunction eventually. And with the help of this book, they no longer have to deny its existence or pretend the clinical signs are the result of 'normal' aging. Eileen approaches this complex disease with a combination of scientific rigor and deep empathy for the animals and people who suffer from it. Her approach is clear, practical, open, and empathetic. Thank you, Eileen, for providing yet another excellent resource for animal lovers everywhere." -E'Lise Christensen, DVM DACVB (board certified veterinary behaviorist) "While always conveying deep compassion and sensitivity for dogs with CCD, Eileen also recognizes the difficulties and stress that this disorder can place upon owners. ... In finishing this book, I realized that while Eileen had written it specifically to help senior dogs with CCD, the information found in its pages will also be of interest and help to all who live with senior dogs, as we strive to keep their lives happy, healthy, and enriched." -Linda P. Case, author of Beware the Straw Man and owner of AutumnGold Consulting & Dog Training Center "Personal, easy to read, and full of useful information, Remember Me? is a must-have for everyone living with a dog. Once you have read this book, and I recommend you read it now, you'll want to keep it accessible as a reference for when you need it most." -Lori Stevens, CPDT-KA, SAMP, owner, Seattle TTouch "What a marvelous book this is! I have been fortunate to have shared my life with a rather large number of beloved dogs. Having so far outlived all of them, I can only look back and wish I had had the common sense and wisdom available in this book to help me through the hardest times-the times when it was left to me to figure out how best to help my friends as they started to fade away, and, eventually, to decide if and when their need to go on superseded my desire to hold on tight. With ample references, case studies, and personal stories, Eileen has fleshed out the many problems and joys of caring for an old dog. This book is an invaluable tool which will be in my 'toolbox' for many years to come!" -Sue Ailsby, author of Training Levels: Steps to Success and instructor at Fenzi Dog Sports Academy
From the Author
When my rat terrier Cricket started acting oddly as she grew older, I thought it was just normal aging. It wasn't. It was canine cognitive dysfunction, or dog dementia, which is medical condition that goes far beyond the normal slowing down as dogs age.

At the beginning, book seemed a little dry, but once the basics were out of the way (definitions and such - it was pretty brief), Ms. Anderson's story of caring for her dog, Cricket, and what she learned about canine palliative and hospice care drips with sensitivity and humanity. Discussing the decline of a beloved furry family member can be a really painful subject, by Ms. Anderson speaks with warmth about lessons learned and presents the reader with a wealth of help. The book has plenty of multimedia with links to illustrative videos of some of Cricket's symptoms, as well as outside expert's resources. Finally, the writing is very tight and excellently researched. The book is just as long as it needs to be and no longer, which I really appreciate. I'm the kind of reader who likes to get to information quickly.
I was a little worried the quality of the eBook wouldn't be up to snuff before I bought it. I've seen some "Kindle Editions" of other books that are only semi-readable shadows of their physical editions. I was pleased with the polish on this book, though. The cover, writing, editing, and proofreading scream professionalism - and I couldn't find a single typo! That's pretty rare these days.
In the end, I feel I'm far better prepared to care for my 14-year-old dog, and that I received value from this book far and above what I paid for it.
I am a big fan of Eileen and her blogs and knew this book would be great, but it's even better than I anticipated. I love how well-researched this book is (as expected) and all of the citations of additional resources for even more reading into general cognitive decline. It's great to have some reliable and researched information on CCD so I can better care for my aging pup and be educated when speaking with my veterinarian. Thank you, Eileen!!
