While he necessarily focuses on the details of his dog and father, he attempts to relate his experience to the similar path we all take with our loved ones at the end of life. He explores why humans feel the loss of a dog so deeply. He recounts the storm of uncertainty he felt as son and physician that terminated in transcendent serenity after the last breath of his father, a complete surprise. Ultimately, it is a memoir which develops the possibility that when we extend the gift of caring to a loved one, canine or human, during the sunset days of life, we might receive a more powerful one in return—an encounter with the depth and breadth of our humanity.
