I just finished reading your book, Rescuing Sprite. I had been eyeing your book at the bookstore but couldn’t bring myself to buy it as my dog, KC, was suffering from congestive heart failure and I knew her time with me was coming to a close. I had to have her put to sleep last Friday, at 4:30 pm and was absolutely devastated.


While my husband loves our dogs, he isn’t as open about his feelings as I am and felt very alone. I ran out and bought your book on Sunday and didn’t stop until I was finished that day. I can say that I am so glad you wrote that book because I could identify with everything you said. It was incredible and really did make me feel better. I was so torn in half by putting her to sleep. I felt so guilty by being the one to decide the date, time, etc., that would end her life. Everyone kept telling me it was the right thing to do but the other half of me kept screaming not to do it. I just wanted you to know that your book has brought so much comfort to me, just to know I’m not crazy for feeling the way I do about losing my baby!


Thanks for sharing your deepest thoughts and I know you have probably helped thousands of pet lovers like me and will continue to help in the future!

Thanks so much!
