“Loving & Very Helpful”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Barry Watson

Having a pet as part of your family, is a memory you carry through your entire life. Equally as vivid, is when your pet passes away. I can still clearly remember the pets we had growing up which were a welcomed member of our family. I can also remember the great sense of lost we all felt when they were not there.
To the non-pet lover, it’s hard for them to appreciate the attachment you have with your 4 legged “best friend.” To you though, it’s difficult to put into words the unwavering friendship they offer.
Sadly, when your dog or pet is dying, you are left to try to handle your grief as best you can. This book then will come as a welcome relief to those who have had or will have this unpleasant experience happen to them.
You can tell that the author speaks from her heart and not just a bystanders point of view. Her love and compassion for pets and their owners is very prevalent. There’s no way she could empathize on this delicate topic unless she had been there and done that. Case in point; she lists many feelings that are common to pet owners who grieve.
One thing that really struck me was when the author talked about hugging and loving your dog as they draw near to passing away. Although this seemed natural, I wondered if I would draw away from my pet, so I could minimize the pain I was about to be faced with.
It’s comforting to know that there is a kind and proven roadmap to learn from in tough times.
What I also like about this book are the “Contemplation Questions” at the end of each chapter. They help you apply the main themes of what’s been said. One of the things I liked was creating a “Reminiscence List” of all the activities you and your dog enjoyed doing together.
If you want some help on the practical aspects and emotions of a dog/pet that’s dying or has died, this book will be a very good support to you.
