It helped me after losing my best friend... Coco... who was put to sleep 2 months ago at the nice age of 16. I miss her fiercely and this book helped me with my feelings.


If you’re hurting after losing your pet, this book will ease your suffering and help with your grief.


After recently losing my beloved dog, I felt all sorts of emotions that I didn't expect- and believe me, I expected the worst. This book was very helpful to me during my toughest times of grief. There were moments where it felt as if the author was writing my own thoughts down on the page. I think if you're hurting enough to even look for a book like this on Anonymous, you are the type of person who may be comforted by knowing that you are not alone in your feelings. The author, and all of us taking the time to read and review this book, are right there with you. My sincere condolences to all of the people this book has brought together.


Helped ease my pain knowing I was not the only one who hurt this deeply after loss of a pet


I read this book in drifts and chapters whenever i was sad to distract my attention. It took me a while to get to the end but this book was very helpful. Well written and easy to follow. Some great advice as well and some helpful suggestions long within community sites that can help further. Thank you!!!
