The Legacy of Beezer and Boomer describes Doug Koktavy’s own journey through anticipatory grief when his beloved dogs were dying. During this time, he was engulfed with fear, guilt and hopelessness, but found strength and powerful solutions when he began to listen to his wise dogs. The award-winning book illustrates how we can learn to stay present, cope with emotions, and ultimately find peace in the most difficult situations.
