How Animals Grieve
Barbara J. King

The Last Walk: Reflections on Our Pets at the End of Their Lives
Jessica Pierce

“Jessica Pierce takes a brave and honest look at the hardest decision all of us who share our lives with dogs must face—whether and when to put to sleep, put down, euthanize, terminate, kill our boon companions. She does not make it easier—it never gets easier—but she does succeed in cutting through the euphemistic obfuscation that so often obscures every aspect of the subject.”—Mark Derr, author of How the Dog Became the Dog: From Wolves to Our Best Friends
