Written from your pet's perspective, every page in this book is full of love and loyalty from beyond the grave. Let the voice of your best friend guide you to the other side of grief. You will never look at life or death the same way again
Author Kate McGahan brings 35 years of clinical hospice and end-of-life care into this powerful and life-changing book. What will you do when I must leave? How do you prepare? Why do some of us suffer? What happens when we die? Why don't some people understand? Based on the wisdom and teachings of our favorite four-legged grief counselor, Jack McAfghan, this book is designed to bring comfort and inspiration at your time of personal loss. As the appointed Rainbow Bridge representative, Jack will answer many questions you have asked and many questions you have not yet thought to ask.
Learn the secret language that will help you communicate with your pets no matter where they are. He walks you gently through the five stages of grief. He will prepare you for the inevitable, teach you to make peace with decisions you may ultimately have to make and help you to understand that the end of this life is not the end of life at all. Learn to face transitions courageously, rid yourself of guilt and blame, find out how much you are deeply loved and strengthen your faith in the fact that life never ends and that love never dies.
When the time comes to grieve the loss of a pet, you are never prepared; it's never long enough. This little book will help you know how to make the right decisions, how to stay strong in your time of loss and how to move forward by using the power of your love instead of the limits of your mind.
