Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Rocky's loss taught me how deeply we grieve for our loved animals, the intensity of pain and the length of time it can last," writes Betty Carmack, a nurse and professional pet loss counselor. In Grieving the Death of a Pet, Carmack draws from her experience of counseling more than two thousand people who have lost a beloved pet, as well as the loss of her Rocky and other furry friends. She offers the book as a kind of pet-loss support group to counter "a world that reminds us repeatedly that grief for an animal doesn't count as much as grief for a person." It's poignant and sometimes heartrending, filled with personal stories of love and loss as well as Scripture and thoughts on faith.

    Brilliantly written, touching book

    The author truly touches the heart of both the human and animal emotions during the grieving cycle of losing a pet. I both laughed and cried as I read the different stories that she tells with such tenderness and compassion. This truly is a book that everyone who has lost a beloved pet should read. I have shared this book with friends who have recently lost pets and it has helped them to realize that it is perfectly normal to grieve so deeply. A must read for all pet lovers!

    Betty Carmack's Book Hits An Emotional Cord For Any Pet Owner

    This book is for anyone who has lost a pet, anticipates the loss of their pet or who is currently going through the grief process. Ms. Carmack candidly talks about her own personal emotions concerning the pets she has lost as well as the stories of others and their pets who range from cats to parrots to dogs. This is an "easy read" that immediately captures your attention. You won't want to put it down.

    Highly Recommend for every pet owner

    I wish we would have had this book before our beloved pet passed from this world on New Years Day 2013...we were grieving very hard...it is now the end of February and we still think of him and miss him. When we are feeling a bit down we will go to this book for reference...it is very good, every pet owner should read this one Before they are at the time when they may lose their pet...it is very good...and so Is "Cold Noses at the Pearly Gates" both are excellant...
