This book has helped in dealing with my grief. Over the loss of my dog Sassy. It helped me to understand how important she was to me. And also helped with the grieving process.

A good read.

With the Recent Loss of our Beloved Cat Tobey this book helps quite a bit with our Grief. As The Author says some people may say he was like a Family Member, No this is not true, He was a Family Member for 18 Years. He gave us Many Happy Memories and we will never Forget Him.

Excellent, practical advice on dealing with the death of a beloved pet whether the pet dies of natural causes or must be euthanized. The author does not descend into emo treacle. Mr. Katz lives on a farm and has owned many pets. His words carry the weight of experience.

Read this book when I knew my dog was nearing the end of his long life. Helped me greatly to make the decision the next morning not to prolong his suffering.
