When I lost my dog, I knew it would be difficult, but I was surprised at how hard the grief hit me. Wendy does a great job of explaining the grieving process and helping you work through the difficulties you face. ~ Judy Trumbell

This book spoke to my heart. When I was a child, I lost my best friend, a Min Pin, and never got over the loss and never got and kept another pet. It was just too traumatic to lose her. So Mrs. Van de Poll's book with gentle, caring understanding and support let me release some of that grief and heal. I would like another puppy. Maybe now I can let another furry baby back into my life, understanding that there may be loss again, but also so much unforgettable love. ~ Lisa Mortenson
