I found this book very useful, and I firmly believe it came to me in perfect timing in a will beyond my own. I had just put down my black lab of a little bit over 12 years, to a progressive throat paralysis complication. this meant my scheduled appointment at the vet, was the last ride I would ever take with my special girl. the first 3 days after her passing we're filled with agonizing loss and grief, tears the likes of which I thought I would never cry.

I found this book the week I had to say goodbye to my beloved cat, Boo. The authors of this book have put together something very comforting to those of us having a hard time with our grief over losing our pets. The book is concise, compassionate, and addresses so many of the things swirling around in our minds during this time. I highly recommend it to anyone grieving the loss of an animal companion. There are many passages I will be coming back to again and again in the future.

This book was recommended to me after the loss of my dog Dakota. I found it to be very helpful. Lots of encouragement & reassurance that it’s ok & in fact normal to grieve the loss of your pet. What I liked: its short & helpful. Including real stories. What I didn’t like: the two authors co-writing style. I’d have preferred 1 author or a clear distinction of who was “speaking.”

This book is wonderful for anyone who has lost a furry friend over the years. Wheather your grief is new and raw, or old and a memory this book is great for you. It really helps to settle the mind and the heart, while giving great tips to help you cope. I would recommend this book to anyone in any profession. It is important to understand the human-animal bond, and it's effect on people.

Salve for an open wound

Dear Drs Ken and Nancy. It's been two weeks since we said goodbye to our precious Lucy. (Lab mix) we've had many dogs but she was special. Your book is what I needed to put this grief into perspective. Thank you

Beautifully written, full of empathy and practical tips for dealing with the loss of a companion. Short chapters make it easy to digest, and personal stories help with processing your own grief. Definitely recommend.

Helpful and an easy read. At the very least it is written by two people who have dedicated their lives to this work and have degrees in social work counseling.
