I have so much guilt associated with Daisy's illness and subsequent death that I felt like I needed to find a way to deal with all of these emotions in a healthy way.

Very helpful suggestions for moving through loss and letting go. Comforting to have this, because pets become part of our hearts and our families, yet their lives are so much shorter than ours...

Truly am grateful for this book. Needed a gentle outline/ framework that could assist in processing the enormous and varied feelings that seem to shift at times moment to moment after the loss of a treasured family member/ dog. Am appreciative this book is written in a such a way...it has applicable exercises and examples that allow for reflection.

This book was a big help to me as I worked through my feelings after losing a beloved dog and cat within 2 days of each other. I am still having trouble moving on but I do feel that this book helped me a great deal.

This book is a must read for anyone that is or has ever grieved the loss of a pet. I rarely give anything a 5 star rating, but this book definitely deserves it!

Recommends it for: anyone needing structured guidance in mourning
It made me feel like it was "The Only Way" to grieve and feeling alienated from the get-go.
