All About Amber: Planning for Our Dog in the Event of Our Passing

Considering the relatively short life expectancies of dogs, most people assume that their dog will pass away before themselves. But what if that doesn't happen? What if you pass away before your dog? All About Amber is an open letter to the people who would take care of Amber in the event Amber's parents pass away before Amber.

The book is written so that in the event Amber's family passes before Amber, Amber's needs and desires would be fully understood by her new family. It is written as a model for others so that everyone has a plan for their dog in the event they pass away first and that the new family is not unfamiliar with the personality and needs of their new family member.
