Our pets are part of the family. For many they’re as close as children; for some they may be our only children. And while most of us can expect that our children will outlive us, sadly, our pets almost never do.

Losing a pet can be as difficult as losing any other family member; we grieve, we miss them, and, mostly, we want closure, to know that our furry, feathered, or sca

I love Sonya Fitzpatrick, she did a personal reading for me when we had our first Sheltie when we lived in the Houston, TX area. That was a long time ago. Our Tyson was around 12 yrs old at the time. She is just unbelievable, I told her nothing on what I was bringing my dog to her. The things she told us he was saying to her was just plain amazing. No way she knew the things that she told us. Anyway our Tyson lived to be almost 15. Our second Sheltie Ozzie had to be put down Oct. 22nd, 2014. He ...more

When I found my way to this book, I was not aware of the author’s radio and television shows, or her beliefs on the Afterlife. I have recently had to say goodbye to my Border Collie, which has been devastating, and have been trying to find ways to find some solace and heal. I found this book to be helpful in that regard.

However, it must be pointed out that reincarnation is one of the central themes of the stories presented in this book. If this is not one of the tenets of your faith, as is the c

Numerous books describe experiences of human beings who have temporarily died and experienced what all refer to as an “afterlife.” Now Sonya Fitzpatrick, a “pet psychic,” offers comfort to the innumerable pet owners who have experienced the devastating loss of a beloved animal. Whether the reader actually has lost a pet or knows of someone else who has suffered that loss, this is a book of comfort, a book of faith. For it is the author’s premise that there is an afterlife that animals share with ...more
I'm having mixed feelings about this book. Part of me didn't believe half of the things written here. She sounded like a bogus medium that just take advantage of vulnerable griefing pet owners. . But in the same time, what she did say to these pet owners did bring comfort and some peace. Even as I read some of her words, I thoughf of my dying or deceased pets and I cried a bucket. If anything, I am just glad that this book brings comfort to its readers.

In her new book ‘There are no Sad Dogs in Heaven’, famous pet psychic Sonya Fitzpatrick gives messages of hope to pet owners. Fitzpatrick reassures readers that not only do our pets live on in spirit when they die, but they also stay near us.

Fitzpatrick shares stories of private readings she’s had with clients who are struggling after the death of a beloved pet. Many owners blame themselves for their pet’s death, many worry that their pets didn’t know how much they were loved. The pet psychic at

I started this book shortly after my Samantha died. It has taken me several months to get through because I would cry every time. Finally finished and I'm at peace with her passing and believe that this book helped me through a difficult journey.

This is the perfect gift for anyone who has lost a pet.

I always learn something from Sonya Fitzpatrick. This is a great book for any pet parent who wonders if their dog hates them, forgives them, or has other lasting negative feelings about them. Sonya is always so positive and supportive. Using many examples, she shows us how forgiving animals are and how we must accept that some things in life are just meant to be and there is little we can do to change it.

Sonya also encourages us to be bette

I love Sonja Fitzpatrick and all her books and this one is no exception. It's a wonderful comfort to pet lovers and fascinating reading. I still miss Animal Planet's pet psychic show, but it helps that Sonja is still writing books.
