This book I believe will be very helpful for all doggie parents. We try to make sure thungs will be taken care of after we pass, but most people don't think about their pets. This book covers everything, from what they like to eat to how they like to be petted. This will help others know how your pet needs to be taken care of and insure that they are loved and cared for the way they was before you passed. ( )

I love my dogs, they are like my children and if something happened to me and my immediate family I feel happier if my dogs were taken care of in a way that I would like. If I Should Die Before My Dog is a brilliant book for writing down your wishes for your dog if something did happen to you.

It is basically an instruction manual for whoever takes care of your dog. It covers the basic things like name, age, d.o.b, nicknames that you might call your dog. For instance my dog is called Peppa but she is often called P or Peps. You can add whether you dog is a purebred or a cross-breed. Vet details including whether your dog likes to visit the vet or not. When it’s annual visit is, if it needs medication. If he/she has been spayed or neutered. Microchip number, what food it likes and generally care for the dog. If it goes to a grooming parlour for instance, my dogs are shih tzus and they go to the grooming parlour every 12 weeks for a haircut. You can add your grooming parlours details too.

There is so much to add to this book that I know for sure nothing has been left out. I know my dogs will be looked after if I go before them and I feel a lot better knowing there is an instruction manual for them.

If you have a dog then I would definitely recommend this book. Ok the chances are that you will outlive your dog but to be there is no harm in getting it and filling it in, just in case! ( )

I love my animals,as every day it seems that they do something new that makes me laugh. When I go to the store I know what treats to buy and also what their favorite toys are. I never thought about what would happen to them,if something happened to me. As even though my family members know the pets,they don't know they are scared of the lightening. Or,that when dinner is over they get some scraps mixed with their food. That is all solved with this one little book. As even though it is small is size,it is big in info! I would recommend this book to all dog lovers. I also just found out that there is going to be a book for cats and horses next too! ( )

As a dog lover and dog guardian, have you ever wondered:

What would happen if you could no longer care for your dog?
Who would take care of your faithful companion if he/she outlived you?
How would the new caretakers know about your dog's special needs?

If so, you’re not alone. Authors Joe and Cathy Connolly have asked those very same questions. After witnessing several pets lose their human guardians, and seeing how difficult it was for those pets to adjust to loss in a strange environment with people who knew nothing about them, they decided to write a book to help ensure that dogs everywhere would be taken care of, even when their guardians were no longer around.

If I Should Die Before My Dog is a beautifully written prompted journal that enables you to share everything you would want a new guardian to know about your beloved pet in the event you were no longer able to take care of him or her.

Here are a few examples of the fill-in-the-blank topics you’ll find inside this book:

My Nicknames
My Medical History
My Food
Things That Scare Me
My Personality
Toys and Games
Words I Know

Interspersed among the journal pages are wonderful pet tips and beautiful illustrations by Rod Lawrence.

As you fill in each page, this book becomes a living record of what makes your dog so special. Even reading through the blank book moved me as the prompts brought to mind many special memories of the dogs that have touched my life.

This book is a treasured keepsake - and potential lifesaver - for each and every dog in your life! I not only recommend it, but I’m counting down the days until the authors complete their follow-up book, If I Should Die Before My Cat!

"If I Should Die Before My Dog" should be the one book all dog owners have! What will happen to your dog should you die....does their next guardian know what their favorite toy is, what vet they go to, do they like the car or not, or are they micro-chipped. These are very important things their new guardian will need to know. In this book you fill in the blanks with your dogs vital information that will hopefully help them and their guardian make the transition smoother. I would love to see it come out for other pets such as cats, bird, or whatever type of friend you have.

This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review. ( )
