The author dedicates this personal memoir "To all those caring for a companion animal during its final journey. May my story help lessen your fear and suffering." Many books deal with the death of a companion animal and subsequent grieving. This groundbreaking memoir on the dying of a pet invites you to share the author's pain and discoveries during that difficult period between diagnosis and the last goodbye. First Beezer with chronic renal failure, then Boomer with osteosarcoma....two of the most common killers of our dogs. Hear what others are saying about this book: "The Legacy of Beezer and Boomer" gives you valuable roadmap for making loving and carefully considered decisions for your sick or aging pets. It is a rare snapshot into anticipatory grief, the very real pain we go through when our pets are departing."
