"Cold Noses at the Pearly Gates" was written to provide comfort and hope to those who have suffered loss of the family pet. It is estimated that nearly 20 million pets are lost or pass away annually in the United States. More often than not, pets are considered bonafide members of the family. Their passing causes the family grief and pain as surely as if the loss was a human member. In the field of Psychiatry, there is no shortage of counselors or books to help the grieving deal with their grief. Invariably however, the thrust is for the griever to "move on" or have "closure". Unfortunately, most people do not want closure when it comes to someone they love. They don't want to move on. They have spiritual questions and concerns. They want answers. They want more. Cold Noses at the Pearly Gates gives them more. Where Psychiatry stops, the author of Cold Noses goes on. Focusing his more than 20,000 hours of formal and personal Bible study, Gary Kurz addresses the big questions that most pet people ponder. He compassionately and expertly guides the reader to a place of understanding, a place of hope and comfort. Since being published in 1996, Cold Noses has established itself as the authoritative work addressing animal afterlife. Recognized by sources of major and animal groups, shelters, and psychiatric clinics across the country as the book of hope it claims to be, it has been used as part of the grief therapy regimen in many of these institutions. This book is a must read for anyone who loves animals and a must stock for libraries and places of business in the pet industry.
