Perfect book for today, the day I parted with my beloved Chow Chow, Rosie. Great hope and comfort in this book! A must read for any animal lover.

I don't like this book, but I'm giving it a three. Not that I agree with what's in it, but for what's here it is well written and the author does support his inferences, suppositions and assumptions with Bible verses and passages which was his intention. As such, he's done a good job.
Whether or not you agree with him or even think his viewpoint is worth consideration will likely depend on your thoughts about the Bible. If you believe that all the questions from all the people for all time are an

Gary Kurz, uses Bible scriptures to support the theory that our pets have souls and go to heaven. The title Wagging Tails in Heaven; The Gift of Our Pets' Everlasting Love draws-in the pet lover. The cover has an engaging picture of a kitten and pup. Kurz's writing style is so personal that it seems he is speaking directly to the reader.

The book isn't as soft a read as the title and cover might lead one to expect. It reads as though each chapter could be a Sunday sermon. Kurz researched his sub

I would rate this book 3.5 stars. A good majority of the book is pretty much common sense if you know anything about the Bible and believe it. (I do believe it). It seems like a good portion of this book is about finding faith with God instead of actually helping the reader find comfort in losing a beloved pet. The reason I wanted to read this book was because my family's pet (a Dachshund named Heidi) passed away November 1, 2011 at the age of 14 1/2. I called her "sister". Being an only child a ...more

If you read this book thinking that you're going to read sweet stories about pets and be comforted at their loss, you'll be sadly disappointed. Gary Kurz knows the scriptures and shares his insights and knowledge through his writing. But there is little to do with pets, and to get to his point he does manage to wander around the block a few times before reaching his destination. Though I found the book scripturally uplifting, I was disappointed in his lack of direction as far as pets are concern ...more

This book gives you some interesting details and references to think upon. Enjoyed reading it. It is definitely for animal lovers who have lost a pet.

I was a little disappointed in this book. My sister-in-law gave me this book when my 17 year old daschund passed this last June. But rather relating to how we will be reunited with our beloved pets it seemed more like a sermon and bible education with personal histories of the author and his conversion. Wasn't really thrilled with this one.

I couldn't finish this book. While I agree with it's basic premise, the book itself was way too religious for my taste. Of course, all dogs go to heaven. I also believe I'll be reunited with all my beloved dogs who have gone before me. I didn't need this book to tell me what I already know.
