None of us can predict the future, but in the event situations arise such as death, health impairment or left with no other choice but to give them up, this book will be there to assist your beloved pet with the transition from one home to another.

If you are like me and have a fur baby, have you really given any thought about what would happen to them when you are gone? Allie, Tutu and Winnie (may she rest in peace) are a big part of our lives, but I never really gave any thought to providing for them after I am gone. But in this unique book entitled, “If I Should Die Before My Dog–” written by Joe and Cathy Connolly, dog owners are given step by step guidelines on how to make sure your fur baby is taken care of. It is like a baby book for dogs. I read the book but decided that it would be an awesome opportunity for Gracie to put her future vet skills to use. I let her fill out the forms in the book. Yes folks this book comes with forms to fill out almost like a how to guidebook on your dog. Now remember Gracie is 10 going on 40 but she loved this book. She felt secure knowing that the person who gets her “little sister” would know everything there is to know about her.

If you are looking for a unique present this holiday season for a dog lover then this is the one for you. But just because the title has the word dog in it does not mean that you can not adapt it to your own pet. Yes it is that easy to use folks. I loved this book. I now know that Allie and Tutu will be safely cared for when we have passed. Can you say the same about your fur babies?
