This book was written as a memorial to our dog who passed away. We adopted him when he was older. When he passed I looked for books to help me deal with his passing, I didn't take it very well. There wasn't anything out there that helped. So my husband and I wrote his story and I started drawing pictures of him. The story helped a lot, it helps us remember that he loved us and we loved him. I knew there would be other people out there that needed to be reminded when dealing with their pets passing. So I say this is a children's book, but it is just as much a book for their parents as well.
