The perfect gift for every dog owner.
In the early 1940s, famed playwright Eugene O'Neill wrote a moving piece of prose about his dog, Silverdene Emblem O'Neill (Blemie). In The Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog, O'Neill eloquently and compassionately articulates what all dog owners feel as their pet nears the of its life. O'Neill's elegy has been lovingly restored to print and is beautifully illustrated by the award-winning quilt maker Adrienne Yorinks. Yorinks complements the text using twenty-five machine-pieced and hand-stitched quilts with color photographic transfers of dogs. The Last Will says everything that needs to be said to someone you love who is losing or has lost a beloved canine friend.

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.
