    A wonderful book

    I came across this book about three years ago. It is short in length (I read it from cover to cover in the store and could not leave without it) but long on wisdom. It gives voice to what many of us feel when we see our animal friends start to slow down and know that they are not going to be with us forever. I have recommended this book to friends and have given it to friends who have a lost a beloved dog.
