"The author reaches out to those experiencing the loss of a beloved pet. Tom Stechschulte, the longtime narrator of Katz's wonderful tales of Bedlam Farm, becomes the warm and comforting voice of Katz as the author tells stories of lost lambs and roaming cats. The focus is on a fiercely intelligent but overly aggressive dog named Orson, whom Katz had to put down. Stechschulte's solid narration reassures us that we never need to apologize for grief, even if others dismiss the loss as "just a dog." The narrative includes Katz's philosophy of grieving and many stories of pet love lost and life going on. As the owner of an elderly Cavalier King Charles, I found myself frequently tearing up.
