Even when you say goodbye, the love stays in your heart.
This heartfelt imagining of what happens when a beloved pet dies offers children a caring introduction to the emotions of grief and loss, from a perspective of love and healing.
Shay and their dog Fluffy are best friends. Through the years they are each other's source of comfort and companionship in times of both sadness and joy. When Shay learns that Fluffy is sick and they must say goodbye, they feel angry and scared. But Fluffy offers a gentle reassurance--as she always has--and Shay reflects on the meaningful bond they have shared with their friend and the love for her that they will hold in their heart forever.
