Ms. Pierce has written an amazing book about her last year's journey with her dog Ody. As a veterinarian who has practiced for just over 32 years, I did not think there was anything new for me to learn about death, dying and euthanasia. But after reading this book, I realized how wrong I was. This book is a gut-wrenching story about the author's last year spent with her aging dog who has some severe neurological problems. The issues she bravely puts out there for all of us to read are the ones that haunt (or should haunt) any owner of a beloved pet. Don't read this if you are looking for a feel-good book. Do read this if you will some day need to contemplate the euthanasia of your own pet, and do so knowing that you will have a companion to help you struggle through your own personal decision. If I could have my way, this would be required reading at every veterinary school.

I got interested in this book because I have an older dog and thought it would be a good read. It's really interesting because it talks about the ethics of how dogs and all animals are treated as well as making it personal by talking about her (the author's) personal experience. Don't have to be a huge animal lover to like this book.
