About the Author:

WALLACE SIFE, Ph.D. is a psychotherapist and internationally renowned authority on pet bereavement. The first edition of his celebrated classic won the prestigious Maxwell Award for the best nonfiction pet book of 1993. Dr. Sife founded and is the President of the Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement (APLB), a nonprofit organization. In addition to counseling individuals, he trains other counselors to help grieving pet lovers.

From Publishers Weekly:

If you snicker at the notion of a book devoted to pet bereavement, consider that that very lack of sympathy may have brought the book into being. Sife, a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based psychotherapist and the founder of the Association for Pet Bereavement, addresses the pet owner whose grief at a pet's death is largely misunderstood or even ridiculed by friends, associates and society in general. Although his topic easily lends itself to touchy-feely disquisitions, Sife is to be commended for offering information that is not only compassionate but concise, wide-ranging and, above all, practical. For example, he defines stages of grieving, interpolating case studies to demonstrate those instances where expressions of mourning mask deeper problems. He composes dignified rejoinders to those who launch a "perceived assault" on the reader's grief; explains why the rupture of a human-animal bond can be so devastating; offers specific techniques for dealing with anger; explores the special needs of children whose pets die; presents various factors involved in considering euthanasia, including such particulars as whether or not it is beneficial to remain with the pet until its final breath; and polls leaders of various religions. A superb contribution to a growing field.
