Good Grief: On Loving Pets, Here and Hereafter

Sinopsis :

An unexpected, poignant, and personal account of loving and

losing pets, exploring the singular bonds we have with our

companion animals, and how to grieve them once

they&#8217vepassed.E.B. Bartels has had a lot of

pets&#8212dos, birds, fish, tortoises. As varied a bunch as

they are, they&#8217vetaught her one universal truth: to own

a pet is to love a pet, and to own a pet is also&#8212wih rare

exception&#8212tolose that pet in time.But while we have

codified traditions to mark the passing of our fellow humans,

most cultures don&#8217thave the same for pets. Bartels

takes us from Massachusetts to Japan, from ancient Egypt to

the modern era, in search of the good pet death. We meet


veterinarians, archaeologists, ministers, and more, offering an

idiosyncratic, inspiring array of rituals&#8212frm the traditional

(scattering ashes, commissioning a portrait), to the grand

(funereal processions, mausoleums), to the unexpected

(taxidermy, cloning). The central lesson: there is no best

practice when it comes to mourning your pet, except to care

for them in death as you did in life, and find the space to

participate in their end as fully as you can.Punctuated by wry,

bighearted accounts of Bartels&#8217own pets and their

deaths, Good Grief is a cathartic companion through loving

and losing our animal family.
