There Are No Sad Dogs in Heaven: Finding Comfort After the Loss of a Pet | [Sonya Fitzpatrick]

There Are No Sad Dogs in Heaven: Finding Comfort After the Loss of a Pet

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 scaled friends are okay, wherever they are. For years, animal communicator Sonya Fitzpatrick has helped pet owners cope with the loss of their beloved companions. Many of them ask the same questions: Is my pet happy?

Publisher's Summary

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 scaled friends are okay, wherever they are.

For years, animal communicator Sonya Fitzpatrick has helped pet owners cope with the loss of their beloved companions. Many of them ask the same questions: Is my pet happy? Why did this happen? Is it okay to get another pet? Using her personal experiences as well as the stories of the families she's worked with, Sonya sheds some light on the questions that every grieving pet owner has, and assures the reader that there are, in fact, no sad dogs (or cats or birds or turtles or horses or cows) in heaven.

    Story
    "Great book for anyone grieving the loss of a pet.."
    What made the experience of listening to There Are No Sad Dogs in Heaven the most enjoyable?

    The message is so comforting and uplifting. She validates that our sweet pets are still very much alive and are very happy in their spirit form. I've experiences many instances since listening that confirm that my dog is still with me, just as she says they are.Great book. While she does have an accent, she has such a pleasant and upbeat voice that she is fairly easy to follow. She also just has such an energetic and positive voice that she's fun to listen to.


    What about Carol Irwin’s performance did you like?

    Very upbeat, energetic voice. She speaks with clarity and the tone of her voice makes it easy to discern the words easily, even over the hum of computers and people around my office. I felt happy after listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes - I have listened to it for hours at a time throughout the work day.

    Story
    "Good Dogs Never Go; They Always Stay."
    What did you love best about There Are No Sad Dogs in Heaven?

    This has given me perspective and a piece of mind about the loss of my dog. Through consultations from Sonya's clients, she emphasizes that death is just the end of the physically body and the spirit is still very much alive and with us always.


    What other book might you compare There Are No Sad Dogs in Heaven to and why?

    Chicken Soup for the Soul. It is a series of different real life stories which are grouped into categories/ chapters and sub-categories.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me cry on and off as I mourned and slowly come to terms of the loss of my beloved dog.


    Any additional comments?

    I lost my beloved childhood dog on 11/4/13. The very next day, I found this book through a Yahoo News article that was featured. As Sonya mentions, our pet's spirit is still around us and wants us to be happy. I believe that my dog's spirit lead me to this book to help with my grieving.
