I knew Lilly, the canine soul mate that inspired this book. I followed her story on the author's blog every day, and often felt inspired to work harder with my own furry boy to keep that connection strong and to keep his life with me joyful and alive. When Lilly became ill and the author fought so hard for her life, my heart broke. Roxanne Hawn writes with great clarity and focus. Her devotion to the absolute highest quality of life for Lilly shines through every word, every phrase. I didn't know if I could read the story of her heartbreak in losing Lilly, didn't know if I could bear the sadness. However, Roxanne has created a story that is about survival in the face of deep loss. When that loss is your dog, sometimes the people in your life cannot understand the depth of your sadness. An animal is not the same as a human, so they say. And yet, our bond with a dog can sometimes feel even deeper than the bonds with many of our human companions. My heart still hurts with the loss of Curry in 2008, who I cared for when my daughter's circumstances changed. I still think of him and remain haunted by the way he died.Roxanne Hawn has created a story about honoring the depth of loss one feels and offers solid suggestions for how to process the loss. This is not "how to get over it" but rather is a story about how to respect the connection that existed and to find appropriate ways to heal in the face of such grief. She understands the depth of loss, the questions that will perhaps always remain unanswered, and yet how we live with the loss and the questions. Roxanne offers a variety of resources for the survivor to consider, all practical and well-researched. Because she has lived this, she is able to speak to the heart of one who is grieving their own loss.
