Petra’s cancer grew so incredibly fast, that I only had 4 days to get as far through the book as I could (while still having to work 10-12 hr days). In that time, I was able to make some healthy changes to her diet. But what I am most thankful for in this book, is that the 1st few chapters dealt with my emotions and how to help my beloved pet by controlling my emotions. I will be forever thankful that I took the time to thank my Petra for all she gave me! Although my time with her was cut way too short, I was able to to thank her and say goodbye in a way that gave me some peace. I miss her horribly, as her pain got too severe too quick and her entire body became hypersensitive to pain, but I do highly recommend this book to all dog owners.
