My sweet old dog died recently, so a friend recommended this book to me. It's a beautiful, gentle story of what happens when our beloved pets go to dog heaven. The simple text and warm, child-like illustrations soothe the complex feelings that come with the loss of a dear furry family member. This book is like a good belly rub, or a ham-sandwich biscuit. Highly recommended.
