A heartfelt exploration of human grief after the loss of a pet by the New York Times best-selling author of Dogs Never Lie About Love.
More than 84 million Americans - almost three-fourths of the US population - own a pet, and our society is still learning how to recognize and dignify that relationship with proper mourning rituals. We have only recently allowed the conversation of how to grieve for our nonhuman family members to come front and center.
Lost Companions fills a specific, important demand, a massive need in the market for an accessible, meaningful book on pet loss. Masson takes a very personal, heartfelt approach to this difficult subject, allowing listeners to explore their own responses and reactions, suggesting ways through and out of grief, as well as meaningful ways to memorialize our best friends.
Lost Companions is full of moving, thought-provoking, and poignant stories about dogs, cats, horses, birds, wombats, and other animals that beautifully illustrate the strong bond humans form with them.
