Reviews for My Dog is Dying: What do I do? Emotions, Decisions, and Options for Healing

My Dog Is Dying, What Do I Do?: Emotions, Decisions, and Options for Healing (The Pet Bereavement Series Book 1) by Wendy Van de Poll is 126 pages to guide you through that horrible time in your life when you have to make important health decisions about your dog. Each chapter presents questions for contemplation at the end to help you through your thoughts, emotions, and decisions. Also included is the opportunity to journal about what you’re going through with the situation involving your dog in order to help you through this emotional situation. Chapters include getting the news about the pet’s illness, the grief and loss stages, caring for yourself, making tough decisions, and what to expect about the death of your dog.

Having lost three of my sweet kitties in the last five years, all at a ripe old age of 16, I enjoyed reading My Dog Is Dying, What Do I Do? by Wendy Van de Poll. People are devastated when their dogs pass away because they are part of the family and we mourn it just like the loss of any other family member. My Dog Is Dying, What Do I Do? serves, as the author puts it, as part of a “pet grief support kit,” to allow you to think through your decisions, make a plan, and handle the emotions surrounding the death of a pet. The death of a pet sucks, but My Dog Is Dying, What Do I Do?: Emotions, Decisions, and Options for Healing (The Pet Bereavement Series Book 1) can help ease the pain.

Many dogs are diagnosed with cancer and other incurable diseases, which can be emotionally devastating for their loving caregivers. This book and the free additional Pet Grief Support Kit downloads the author offers will help many people make this time with their canine companions meaningful, bearable, and certainly facilitate their grieving and recovery when death comes. ~

"The death of a beloved dog is uniquely painful, a deep wound that not everyone understands. But Wendy Van de Poll does, and these pages provide a compassionate, healing guide to help you do right by your dog, your family, and your own spirit. The book is fabulous!!"
~ Sy Montgomery, Nationally bestselling author of The Good Good Pig

"In My Dog Is Dying: What Do I Do? Emotions, Decisions, and Options for Healing, Wendy Van de Poll offers clear and affirming guidance when faced with the difficult decisions that come up when your beloved pet is dying. Through her eloquent writing and deep personal experience of losing her own dog Marley, she lovingly shows you step-by-step how to navigate the uncharted waters of a pet's illness and subsequent death. I recently lost my beloved golden retriever Cammi and Wendy's wisdom was where I went for solace and information. A lovely guide for pet lovers and anyone who is dealing with loss."
~ Dr. Debra Reble, International bestselling author and intuitive psychologist.


My Dog Is Dying, What Do I Do?: Emotions, Decisions, and Options for Healing – The Pet Bereavement Series Book 1 by Wendy Van de Poll has been written to support dog owners who are facing the death of their dog from a terminal illness. Divided into three sections, Beginning Your Journey, Living Your Journey, and Ending Your Journey, each chapter is written clearly and is followed by a “wrap-up” summary and contemplation questions. These questions are designed to encourage the individual reader to think about what they have read, decide how it applies to them, and what action they intend to take as a result. The “journey” relates to the moment when the diagnosis is given, through the remainder of the dog’s life, to euthanasia and beyond.

All of us who buy or adopt a dog face heartbreak; their lives are shorter than ours. In My Dog Is Dying, What Do I Do?: Emotions, Decisions, and Options for Healing, Wendy Van de Poll tackles the trauma we feel when our time comes to part with a beloved dog. Easy to read, supportive, and helpful, it can be tailored by the reader to his or her personal circumstances. This is positively encouraged by the writing of a journal during the journey through shock and trauma to acceptance and joy in special memories. I felt that I had met Wendy Van de Poll, especially as she includes many references to her own feelings when her dog, Marley, was diagnosed with terminal cancer. If you are in need of guidance and a friend at this difficult time, this is the book for you.
