Reviews - What do customers think about Dog Heaven?
Helped with healing Mar 23, 2007
This book was sent to me by the specialty veterinary hospital where my beloved dog died. They used the book as a sympathy card of sorts, and wrote personal notes to us expressing condolences. The book is so sweet and touching-I think it would be excellent in helping a child deal with pet loss, because it certainly helped this forty-something year old.
A dear, dear book for those who've lost their best friends Mar 22, 2007
What a comfort this book is for people who have lost their beloved pets. My dad read it every night after Pie the black lab died and it just helps to think of dogs in a better place, enjoying their every whim. My mom thinks veterinarians should stock it.
A comforting tear-jerker Mar 21, 2007
I came across this book several years ago when a friend bought it for another friend. Since then I've given it (or "Cat Heaven") to everyone I know when they lose a pet. Even after having read it many times, it's guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes. It does such a wonderful job of describing just how doggie heaven should be, and many folks I've given it too have told me that it brought them a lot of comfort. I would give this book 10 stars if I could.
Dog Heaven Mar 8, 2007
A perfect book for anyone of any age who had loved a dog.
For anyone who suffers the loss of a dear old dog Feb 27, 2007
This is the book that I buy for friends when they lose a beloved dog. It's not just for kids. It's so sweet, and comforting and lovely. I HIGHLY recommend it! I bought if for my two sons when we lost our precious old dog.
