Last Summer with Oscar Workbook (Paperback)
The purity of love from a pet to its owner comes from a deep, intuitive bond that creates a high quality relationship. Pets warm our hearts with their most wonderful ability to love, and they become much-adored family members. As owners, we hope to be able to share in all the loving over the full lifetime of the pet. However, sudden news of a serious health issue shatters the pet owner's expectancy of lifelong love and cherished attachment. It is devastating to learn our pet is ill, and the hours and days that follow are filled with overwhelming feelings of helplessness, vulnerability and grief. Owners desperately want to know how they can help their pet and may experience pressure and confusion about what they can do. I have created this workbook to offer a personal guide that will help you deal with the potential loss of your pet. Step by step, I will lead you through our journey and thereby yours. By breaking down the situation the pet owner is able to focus on the tasks that need to be accomplished, and this way the reader may gain the most from what was shared in "Last Summer with Oscar." It is my suggestion that one read Oscar's story first, then wait a day or two, and then re-read each subchapter while coordinating time spent completing the corresponding workbook pages. The workbook follows the same order of the table of contents listed in the book. The reader will find that within the workbook, each subchapter is broken down into the essential mental/physical/emotional tasks. Italicized statements found at the end of each subchapter of the book are now identified as spiritual lessons. Please read and reflect, and then write down your responses. Be gentle with yourself as there are no right or wrong answers. Everyone's journey will be a reflection of one's own uniqueness and individual set of circumstances. It is my sincere wish that this endeavor will bring warmest love to you and all who surround you and your most-beloved pet.
