Explaining the concept of death to a child is a very difficult, confusing, and uncomfortable experience for a parent, educator, or therapist, and it is a topic that is often first introduced by the loss of a pet - sometimes a child's earliest exposure to loss and grief. There is an undeniably special bond that develops between people and their pets, especially between animals and young children, and while the death of a pet can be devastating to an adult, children are often deeply affected by such a loss. Without readily available outlets for their feelings, the trauma of pet loss can remain with a child for life, and without help many adults feel inadequate and not up to the task. The aim of this book is to provide therapists, counselors, educators, parents, social workers, veterinarians, and physicians with resources to help children cope with the loss of a pet.

Paw Prints is a touching story of a boy and his dog, as they grow and change together. This sentimental story is told from the dogs point of view. Very often a child s first opportunity to learn the responsibility, and rewards, of caring for and loving something is through their pet. Just as often a child s first experience with losing a loved one is the loss of their pet. If your child has a pet, then Paw Prints will help your child learn that animals have many of the same needs and feelings that people have. Pets need to be loved and cared for in a similar manner. If your child has lost a cherished pet, then Paw Prints will provide an avenue for you to help your child focus on the joy the pet brought him or her instead of the loss.
