after listening to your show for the past 3 weeks and hearing your callers writting about their stories I thought that I would do the same. I went with my mom to a kennel to pick out our pet a tea cup poodle. When I saw the dog we were going to get he looked like a button among a mass of fur. I called him buttons being a spoiled child my mom ended up taking care of button and was very attached. 9 years later I joined the military upon coming home from training my mother was found crying when she told me that button had gone to hide and was not himself I was told that we needed to take him to the vet. upon our arrival I ran around the car and grabbed button so my mother could get out of the car and realized that button had stopped breathing my mother extremely calm took the dog before I dropped him. the vet tried to revive him several times but button had been gone for several minutes we said our goodbyes and went home my mother had lost her best friend and sought out another avenue to find another she rescued a dog that had been severely neglected and abused she would visit the dog everyday until he was used to her he lives with her to this day 7 years later and she couldn’t be happier. I am going to buy your book as a Christmas gift to her so thank you for taking the time to write it if it is as good as your callers say it is I’m sure she will love it and it could help her when buddy passes.
