When Shiner Died

A Children's Book About Pet Loss

By Rebecca Hauder, R.N., M.Ed.

When Shiner Died is the story of a family pet—a yellow lab—that died. It's a children's book about pet loss and grieving the death of a beloved animal. Two members of Shiner's adopted family tell the story. They are Maggie Roxanne and Luke Zamzow Hauder, ages 6 and 4. When Shiner Died will almost certainly bring tears to adult eyes, and children will identify with the story, as told by their peers.
