"For anyone who’s ever owned and lost a dog, this account holds familiar strains of sadness, comfort, and hope."

"As much a story about growing up as about letting go of things that cannot be changed, Watt's book is also a reminder of the profound healing connection that can exist between humans and the pets they love. A tender, heartfelt story."

—Ted Kerasote, nationally bestselling author of MERLE’S DOOR: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog

"Gizelle—big-bodied, big-spirited, inconveniently big at times—is a big-hearted mastiff in declining health who uses a bucket list tour, a loving gift from her human (the author), to quietly wiggle a return gift into Lauren’s own big heart."
—Steve Wolf, author of COMET’S TALE: How the Dog I Rescued Saved My Life
