"If you've ever cried over the death of a pet, you need this book."
Amazon reviewer

Recommended highly by pet lovers around the world, Dog Heaven not only comforts but also brings a tear to the eye of anyone who is devoted to a pet.

In Dog Heaven, there are endless fields for running; clear lakes filled with teasing, honking ducks; and loving angel children playing everywhere. There are fluffy cloud beds for sleeping, memory trips back to favorite spots and people, and cozy homes with petting hands. Rylant uses simple, comfortable language and an abundance of careful detail to create a place of warmth and happiness. Rylant paints a warm and affectionate picture of the ideal place God would, of course, create for man's best friend.

The tactile illustration shows an old man with angel wings flying upward holding a dog.
Includes one tactile drawing by artist Ann Cunningham

"Pure, tender, lyrical without being overearnest, and deeply felt."
- Kirkus

"If you've ever cried over the death of a pet, you need this book. Cynthia Rylant offers comfort for any grieving pet owner, no matter what his age. . . It's been over twenty years since I lost my first and favorite dog, and I identified with this book as if the loss had been yesterday. I can't think of a better way to say farewell to a good and faithful friend than to share this book as a memorial."
- Amazon reviewer
