Unlike a stock sympathy card that is often quickly discarded, My Best Friend is a keepsake booklet; a wonderful way to reach out to a friend or help a child deal with the death of a beloved cat or dog. Told in poem form and beautifully illustrated, it also includes some of our favorite dog and cat quotes. My Best Friend makes a gift that will be long appreciated and forever cherished.

Comes with an interior white presentation envelope with angel wing graphic and imprinted dedication label on page 1 for the name of the pet. A separate gift card (4" x 3.25") with its own enclosure envelope is also included, but there is additional room within the book itself to write multiple personal inscriptions if given on behalf of a club or group.

What they're saying about My Best Friend:

I was very touched in receiving the lovely book in memory of my Piper. It was beautifully written.  P. Williams

My sister got the book today. She called me, crying, and thanked me for thinking of her. She said it was very sweet and fitting (she asked Tinky to wait for her when she crossed). She has a tin with Tinky's ashes in it, a plaque with Tinky's paw print that her veterinarian made for her, and Tinky's favourite toy "Mr. Bone". She said the book will be set with these things so she can look at it now and then. M. Meverden

It is lovely.  Absolutely lovely.  My cousin is NOT getting it. anonymous

What a lovely and thoughtful condolence "book". Beautifully written, and beautifully illustrated. It means so much coming from each of you. Gosh, these little guys just bury themselves into our souls. We miss him so much. G. Tucker

And I want you to know that I love this little book, and I love Karen's illustrations.  I always do. So thank you once again for making our loss a little less devastating. C. Blevin

Having lost several Scotties in my lifetime, I connected right off with the melodic poetry that explains our lives and how we connect with our canine and feline family members. This was actually given to me as a gift when I lost my Scottie of 13 years, a wonderful, thoughtful, condolence thought.

This is a beautiful book to keep for yourself or give to a friend or family member on the  loss their 'fur' friend.
