Remember Me

$15.99

Remember Me? is an award-winning guidebook for owners of dogs who are losing their mental faculties as they age, and the story of a dog and owner who retained their bond through this most difficult situation.

If you have an aging dog, Remember Me? will give you the information you need to weather the difficult condition and give your dog the most fulfilling life possible. In Remember Me?, you will learn:

  • About the symptoms of canine cognitive dysfunction, medications and other interventions that are showing promise in treating the condition;
  • How to adapt your home and habits to keep your dog safe;
  • The many products available to solve the problems of senior dogs;
  • How to make things easier on yourself, physically and emotionally; and
  • The complex question of euthanasia and how to make your own decision about it.

The story of author Eileen Anderson’s small terrier Cricket, who developed dementia, is threaded through the book. As Cricket’s dementia worsened she paced, she circled, she stood in corners, she forgot what she was doing, and at times she lost and found her owner repeatedly. For the last weeks of her life she even forgot how to drink water. As Cricket’s condition deteriorated and needs changed, Anderson learned about the disease and developed methods to care for her dog.

She shares these methods in Remember Me? and her calm, conversational tone is soothing to dog owners who are suffering–sometimes more than their dogs.

Nova was one of my foster puppies two years ago. Today her owner is one of my good friends and dog-walking buddies. But Nova and I were buddies first :) ...

Eye contact from three out of four is pretty good ...

Samson! Finally got a picture of Woody’s BFF with his tongue all the way in his mouth! ...

Woody in winter. Kind of a hothouse flower, this guy. ...

Had a visit from my granddog. It’s been forever! ...

First walk of 2021, last walk with Coco. Let us be happy for Coco! Coco has found a terrific home. ...

A family is coming this week for Coco. Half of me is thrilled. Half of me is not. 😭

It’s a great placement, though. Will post more soon.

our walk was windy this morning ...

In his dotage, one of Otto‘s favorite activities is chasing the mail truck down the fence line and barking furiously as our mail carrier puts mail in our box. Sundays are confusing, but the driver appreciates Otto’s crazy-old-man energy and gave him an encouraging honk, lol ...

“Hey, you with the treats: Look here.” ...

well, the young guy is an up and comer after all #topdogmodel #understudy ...

Gotta find some way to be amused about the endless trail of water drips 😂 ...
