I downloaded this book the day after my dog died. I would like to say it fixed my pain and sorrow, but it made me cry harder. So I would say not to read this the day after your dog dies. There are many comforting words. The downside is that he talks a lot about his dogs. That's O.K. but I think I wanted a bit more in regards to a Deepak Chopra type of outlook.
Comforting to hear an actual voice.
It's ok to think about having another pet without guilt.
Well written using the author's own experience from another book, in which I was very curious and cannot wait to start this new book I just purchased. My beloved dog meant so much top me for so many years. I find myself at lost and cast adrift as she was our anchor of our life. Who am I going to come home for a loving walk with the summer breeze now??
Sure a really good true life story
Mr.Katz.I like the way he thinks
All of them
Do not be afraid to start a new life
This book could not have come at a better time. We just lost our beloved dog Dakota. We were in so much pain and sorrow and Jon Katz helped us navigate this difficult time with love, compassion and truth for our family. He validated our feelings and understands the grieving process. I am buying several copies of this books so my vet can give them out to his animals owners as they say good bye to their loving dogs, cats and horses. Ron
The similarity with regards to pain, and the grieving process.
The entire book. Not just one. We savored every word.
It's not good bye but until we meet again.
This book is for someone who likes animals, not someone who loves them and counts them as part of the family.
The narrator was fine.
Disappointment and anger...as a vet tech I would never want this so called animal lover to bring an animal to my clinic.
Total waste of my $
