    The perfect gift for every dog owner.

    In the early 1940s, famed playwright Eugene O'Neill wrote a moving piece of prose about his dog, Silverdene Emblem O'Neill (Blemie). In The Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog, O'Neill eloquently and compassionately articulates what all dog owners feel as their pet nears the of its life. O'Neill's elegy has been lovingly restored to print and is beautifully illustrated by the award-winning quilt maker Adrienne Yorinks. Yorinks complements the text using twenty-five machine-pieced and hand-stitched quilts with color photographic transfers of dogs. The Last Will says everything that needs to be said to someone you love who is losing or has lost a beloved canine friend.

    • Truly Touching, Beautiful Writing...

      This book is such a wonderful piece of therapy for anyone who has lost their baby of so many years...When our family lost our border collie Kipp to cancer last year, my mother received this book from a friend. When I read it I couldn't help but cry; it's exactly what your beloved dog would have said to you if they could speak to you in words. This book is ideal for those who are still struggling with the grief of their loss as well as if they are (after much time has passed) having a difficult time bringing in a new dog into the home. You can expect a good cry but also a great lesson of love that will absolutely touch your heart and soul from reading this book.
