Crossing the Rubicon: Celebrating the Human-Animal
Bond in Life and Death
When Caesar crossed the Rubicon there was no going back;
he was committed. How like the bond we create once an animal
companion enters our lives. We are irrevocably changed. Crossing the Rubicon:
The Human-Animal Bond in Life and Death
celebrates these changes. A collection of stories, poems, interviews
and exercises, the book is helpful to anyone coping with the loss of
a dear animal friend. It is also pertinent to the reader who wants to
help someone grieve their loss or better understand the full meaning
of the physical, psychological and spiritual roles pets play in our lives.
And as the animal messengers in these pages tell us, it is not only our pets
lives that enrich us, but their deaths and their message from beyond death
that affect us as well.
