In the past year my little Yorkie 13 years old developed breathing problems He was already starting to show signs of aging but this started speeding up the process For months we tried everything and anything to help him We nursed him 24 hours a day and then were faced with the worst decision in the world when the vet said that there was no that could be done His health was bad he was out of ideas and he was old We had already tried many other vets previously too holistic treatments Nothing was working anyI was scared about what was to come and so I went online and looked for books to help prepare me for what lay ahead This book looked good Once I started reading it I could not put it down All the uestions and guilt I had were the same as the book documented and I finally didn t feel so alone The months of struggles that we had faced looking after a pet that was getting old very uickly were experienced by others The fear of not knowing what the next month day hour holds were made easier knowing someone else had also walked in these shoesThis book really carried me through one of the hardest times a dog lover faces and exceeded my expectations of what I thought would be Basically a woman s journey with her old furry friend I was surprised delighted that it also included so much research and factual information It made decisions a bit easier for me and prepared me for what would eventually come The journey this book took me through answered my many uestions Am I doing what is best for him or what is best for me How do I take a life away when God really should only hold that power Would I be doing this because it has become to hard for me or is it to hard for him When is the right time When is enough really enough When Toby s final day arrived I knew what was going to happen and how the process worked as well as all the uestions that would follow cremation or burial etc because I was armed with all the knowledge this book provided me with I was able to make well informed decisions that I am 100% certain were the right onesI have no regrets I was able to go into that room and hold him in my arms talk to him and comfort him I didn t cry or make him feel scared with my own anxiety because there was none I felt calm confident That moment was about him and I was prepared I was by his side comforting him like he was always at mineI recommend this book to Anyone that is facing life with an old dog Being prepared knowledgeable takes a lot of the fear away It also helps you make decisions that are informed from a place of confidence Anyone who has lost a dog after a lifetime of memories and is trying to heal You will relate with many things the Author documents and find comfort that you are not alone Anyone with a love of pets and a thirst for knowledge It is a beautifully documented account of an old dogs last year and is entwined with so much well researched information that it is a fascinating read

It took me a long time to read this book as it brought back painful memories of my two oldies who I lost within 6 months of each other However that enabled me to empathise with the writer and a lot of the emotions she was going through The book is a clever mix of a chronicle of the last months of the author s dog and a look at the science and reality behind ageing pain euthanasia and so much else connected to the end of a dog s life Written in a sensitive and thought provoking way I would recommend this to anyone who is any way connected with or supporting pet owners with older pets or has an oldie themselves
