George Croft has spent approximately thirteen years in the accumulation of this books contents. Those years have been spent in veterinary hospital management, as well as the ownership and operation of a very large pet cremation business. The cremation business dealt with all phases of a pets after care, including grief counseling, the pet's return of ashes in an urn, and many pet owners personal viewings of the entire procedure. Over 145 veterinary locations, their doctors, as well as their staff, have been very involved and helpful in the creation of this book.
All of the stories and events that Jake has written about, did actually happened to either him or his friends. They have been verified as much as humanly possible by George's family, friends, and neighbors, as well as many veterinary personnel.
