"This wonderful book is the best guide I know of that can help us deal with the death of our animal companions, whom the more we love the more we will grieve."
-- Dr. Michael W. Fox, veterinarian and syndicated columnist
"Saying goodbye to a pet soul-mate is something we dread but must inevitably accept. Goodbye, Friend offers answers that are woven into a tapestry of care, compassion and unconditional love for the pets with whom we've shared our hearts and homes. Then, we can become much more than our pet's best friend -- we can become healers, teachers and angels for our friends and family when they, too, lose a beloved pet."
-- Marty Becker, DVM, coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul
"The death of a beloved pet is one of the hardest things to bear. This insightful and compassionate book will help readers accept the grief and move on in their lives."
-- Phillip Gonzalez, author of The Dog Who Rescues Cats
"Uplifting, comforting, spiritual. If you have an elderly or ailing animal companion, please read this book!"
-- Alex Pacheco, cofounder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
