“A lovely, warm, touching tribute to love and loss and dogs. This book celebrates our human capacity to love as well as our ability to survive the most painful grieving process. The delightful recipes provide just the right kind of nurturing we might need along the way.”

“As a veterinarian I have experienced with people countless times the grief of losing a beloved pet. The story of Buddy Girl puts this grief into real, tangible language that will be understood and appreciated by all who have gone through such a devastating loss. The recipes add a unique twist, and to see the circle completed at the end of the book gives hope to anyone who reads it. A valuable resource for anyone who has lost a beloved animal companion.”
