PETS / DEATH AND DYING

Anyone who has ever lost a treasured animal companion knows that this loss can be as devastating as that of a human loved one. Unfortunately, our society does not sympathize with this loss commensurate with the actual grief people feel. Kaetheryn Walker fills this void by presenting true stories of the grief process she and others have gone through after the death of their animal companions. Drawing on the sensitivity and wisdom developed during a lifetime of professional care for animals, Walker shows that this grief is a natural part of the healing process. She gives practical advice on recovery, emphasizing daily self-care, support systems, and homeopathic remedies.

The Heart That Is Loved Never Forgets is also the first book to address the important topic of animal grief. Animals have amazingly complex emotional lives and do indeed experience grief at the loss of a companion. Their grief is not always easy to read, though, so Walker explains how to recognize grief in animals and how to help them heal. Most importantly, she helps us to understand that if we have truly loved and lost a friend, then we have broken through the barrier of death and our love travels with that friend in the journey to other realms.
