John Gray will be discussing his book God Needed a Puppy on Sunday, November 18th at 4:00 p.m. at Northshire Bookstore wherein Edgar the Owl and Freddy the Fox show readers of all ages how saying goodbye to a beloved animal does not mean saying goodbye forever.
In God Needed a Puppy John guides children through the grieving process by using friendly animals from the forest to explain the reasons why a beloved pet sometimes has to leave us. He reassures them that this "goodbye" is not forever and offers hope that other furry friends will someday come into their lives.
John Gray is an Emmy award-winning television journalist and columnist in upstate New York, as well as a husband, father and avid pet lover. When John experienced the unexpected death of the family's six-month-old puppy Samuel, he wanted to turn his pain into something positive. He wrote this story to help every child (and grown-up) who has lost a pet. A portion of proceeds will be donated to animal shelters around the country.
