The life expectancy of cats has nearly doubled since 1930 and, depending on breed, the average dog lives from eight to 16 years, but there is no avoiding the fact that you will probably outlive your beloved pet. In works like The Soul of a Dog, Izzy & Lenore, and A Good Dog, Jon Katz wrote with powerful authenticity about the bonds between humans and the animals who share their lives. In Going Home, he relives the full cycle of his friendship with Orson, the irrepressible border collie soul mate, who first inspired him to buy Bedlam Farm. In life, Orson was sometimes a pest with his affections; after his death, Katz missed even his most outrageous intrusions. This book about mourning and recovery belongs on the shelf of every pet owner.
