I downloaded this book the day after my dog died. I would like to say it fixed my pain and sorrow, but it made me cry harder. So I would say not to read this the day after your dog dies. There are many comforting words. The downside is that he talks a lot about his dogs. That's O.K. but I think I wanted a bit more in regards to a Deepak Chopra type of outlook.

Any additional comments?

Well written using the author's own experience from another book, in which I was very curious and cannot wait to start this new book I just purchased. My beloved dog meant so much top me for so many years. I find myself at lost and cast adrift as she was our anchor of our life. Who am I going to come home for a loving walk with the summer breeze now??
