Since 2009, attendees of Beyond the Paw Print Pet Loss Support Group meetings have found validation of their grief as they shared their stories of love, loss, and lessons learned in a caring, judgment-free atmosphere. It has long been Dr. Golden Moore’s dream to share these stories with the larger community of animal lovers outside the circle of her pet loss support group. The 22 stories in this beautifully illustrated book take you on a journey ― from first hello through goodbye ― while learning how these beloved animals transformed the lives of their guardians. This book is a love letter for anyone who might grieve the loss of an animal companion in isolation. You are not alone; the BTPP community is there for you.
