   This is a sweet book. I would recommend buying it BEFORE your ...
There is a repeating theme of the brother and sister who did not tell the dog that they loved her, but the main little boy did. It would be nice to buy if your dog is old or ill, it would be a good reminder to children to tell the dog that they love him daily and then a nice book of comfort after the dog passes. When I read it to them, I changed the words because they became upset that the book told them that they didn 't tell their dog that they loved him enough and that he was sad.
Wonderfully Sad ''.
   Mourning & loss
I bought this book many years ago, when my son was about 4 years old, and our cat Travis was 18 years old to prepare him for the loss. I am a teacher nurse, one of the kids in my school has a dog who is ill but still holds up. Tackles the delicate issue of preparing children in an elegant and gentle manner for their death.

My favorite book was when I was a child and learning to read.
   A beautiful, heartfelt story
A very beautiful story about an unbreakable bond of love. The author carries you into the story and transports you in the meantime with baited breath. His writing has a unique flare for imagery that helps you see the story clearly. You take your breath at the end of each chapter and wait to see what happens to our lovers the next time. More than a love story, this is a mystery as well as a comment on our current society. I was tearing myself away and I was brought to tears by our hero's heartfelt speech. As a woman who has been abused, I congratulate the author on his commentary on abuse and his portrayal of the warrior.
   Upsetting & Guilt Trippy
This book was recommended by a friend because we found out that our dog will not be much longer with us, we wanted to get our 3 year old ready. This book has bothered me because the story is told by a child who tells the dog that they love her, but no one else in the family tells the dog that they love it. After reading it, I immediately decided to return it because it is not appropriate to inflict this kind of guilt or superiority on a small kid who is struggling to understand that their dog is going to die.
   Sweet and Simple
My daughter and dog are both 12. This book is definitely written for younger children, but my daughter is very sentimental about our dog. She was old enough to appreciate a higher message that we need to tell people we love them and before they go away, dogs included. Definitely a sweet book, written in very simple terms about aging and death, no moral message about what happens after you die, which is great because it breaks the subject but leaves it completely open to talk to your child about your beliefs.
   but not useful for us at all
A useful book, but not at all cute for us. It continues talking about how the boy told his pet DAIlY I love you and how his siblings did not, but he did not feel bad when the pet died because he said, I love you every day. We expect to lose a pet soon and it will be hard for my children, they are not particularly attached and def don 't tell him that they love him daily. This book would make them feel crappy for not telling him.
   One that will stay with you forever.
I can not say enough about this book. A copy of this book was given to me first when I was young and we lost our first family pet. After reading the book my mom started saying, I love you forever, which now seems more weight than I love you. I bought this for a friend and her son as an adult when they lost their family dog. I know she is still mourning her loss, but says she has already read many times, so I hope it means something to them one day what it does to me.
   Highly recommend for toddlers who have experienced the loss of a pet
Our son was three, and we had to put our dog down who was fourteen. We are not religious so we wanted to find a book that dealt with the subject of pet death in an honest and compassionate way. This book helped us find the language to help our son understand what happened to our dog, and it gave him a touchstone for understanding the permanence of loss after our dog died. A month after the death of our beloved dog, my son still asks to read this book, and it helps him remember his love for our dog. While I agree with other reviewers that the part about the narrator not loving the dog as much as the narrator is strange, I skip this part when reading and my son is none the wiser. I highly recommend this book for those trying to explain pet death and subsequent grief to a young child.
