A moving meditation on coping with the loss of the animals that have enriched our lives. Jon Katz returns with a thoughtful exploration of the ways in which people grieve for their pets. Filled with helpful advice, philosophical questions, and emotional reflections about Katz's own animals, this book is about far more than just the grieving process; it's also a comfort to heartbroken pet owners, a guide to letting go, and a means to begin moving on
