This book was not what I thought it would be. I never read Cold Noses at the Pearly Gait so I have nothing to compare it too. The book does bring some comfort to those who have recently lost a pet, but I feel it has some inconsistancies and dwells too much on evil.

Many people have experienced a *sign* from their pet that they are ok and that they're in heaven. This brings much comfort to those of us left behind. The author states that those signs are not from God, or from our pet, and that they are really from Satan trying to fool us. I don't get the point. If I pray to God or my higher being for a sign, and I get one, I then thank God for my sign and I feel at peace. I don't get what Satan gains from that. It reinforces my belief in God.

Also, the author states many times that God does not change. That much I believe. God doesn't change His mind or His character. Since the beginning of time, God has done miracles here on earth, yet the author doesn't believe in them. He stated that God hasn't peformed any miracles since biblical times, after all, the Red Sea hasn't been parted recently. Well, if God never changes, and God did perform miracles, that I think it's probably safe to say that God will always perform miracles. Whether we believe them is up to us, but God won't stop performing miracles even in our disbelief. Maybe the Red Sea doesn't need to be parted now.

Maybe it isn't our pet coming back to show us a sign. Maybe it's our loving Father who gives us the sign that we will recognize and it appears to be our pet. After all, God can do whatever he wants and he's not bound by our limitations.

He also states that heaven is for human and animals only, and that it doesn't include bugs. How does he know that? God doesn't create junk.

I had high hopes for this book. Kurz's "Cold Noses at the Pearly Gates" was such a comforting book and I had heard that this was a good follow-up. I expected it to have additional validating points and additional logical conclusions of those points. It did start off well, clarifying some points made in Cold Noses- such as animals having souls -but then this book fell flat. There are several chapters that weren't really related to pet loss - animals were tied in but it felt more like an attempt to use animals to discuss his religious beliefs rather than his using religious beliefs to prove animals are in heaven.

Some of the chapters were disheartening and upsetting - such as the one on the possibility of animals' spirits visiting after they die. He uses scriptures of people returning to life (being raised from the dead) to discount the possibility of pets spirits visiting to comfort loved ones. He lumps the two together when they are actually quite different. A person re-inhabiting their dead body is quite different than a person's spirit returning to visit a loved one. He says that the Bible doesn't say much if anything about this topic yet claims that it's a "fact" that these visitations or signs are from satan/evil and not from God. He then claims later that if you're a born again Christian then God may give you a sign to comfort you - however if you're NOT a born again Christian then it has to be evil deceiving you. So he contradicts himself. He often takes the long way around to make a point and the point isn't always that comforting of a point to make.

Kurz goes as far to claim that the majority of the books out there written about pet loss are done so for financial gain only.

I rated this as a four because I did like the book. This book was recommended to me by a friend since I had lost my Snowball Chance in January. Our cat (Snowball Chance) came to us after losing his master and being locked in a no AC home with temps close to 100. He had a "snowball chance" to get along with our other three cats at home. An inside cat, Snowball was a cuddler and a lover. At the age of 14 he developed diabetes in August 2013. I am putting dates because it is pertinent to my story. His life then became two shots of insulin daily, special food and numerous trips to the vet for blood work. Gradually he did gain some weight. We felt he was on the road to recovery. On Sunday, December 15, 2013 he escaped out the door when we let our dog outside. Missing and not having his food or insulin, he was doomed. After midnight on the following Wednesday, my husband told me to wake up that there was a white cat crawling over my body. Snowball, I screamed with joy. His little paws were caked with mud and how ever survived that long we will never know. We knew this was a Christmas miracle. God's gift to us. He no longer required his insulin but still ate his special diet food. January 7, Snowball went downhill fast. Back to the vet with no promises, we lost our Snowball Chance. The thought of losing him once and knowing we lost him the second time is devastating. I needed some comfort but it wasn't until the last couple of chapters that I felt some peace. I hurt. I still hurt. I recommend this book to those who seek comfort. God loves us. God loves his animals. When their time is up and He calls them home, we will be together again with Him.
