This book is great. I read it to help me with my Animal Ministry but I know that when my Sophie's time has come, I will be prepared with the grieving process. It's an easy read. Has great suggestions on how to remember you family companion and it helps you to explain death to children. I recommend this book to everyone.
When I try to read a sample I get the book Induring Love! I want to read a sample of this book!!!!! No way am I am going to buy the book if sample is not correct.
This "book" reminded me of reading a college essay/report. As this book is good to understand your feelings about a recently lost pet. It focused more on dogs and did not cover anything about having multiple pets. I would have like to see this book cover more of the how to cope with the loss instead of focusing on just feelings on that you encounter when you loose a pet. I would not recommend this book for the price that Barnes and noble is offering. I think that this subject needs more attention than just 56 pages.
