Psychopomps, Anybody?

Yesterday reader Mary Foster brought up the psychopomp scene from Of Mutts And Men (found in chapter 9). Here’s what she had to say about it (Of Mutts And Men is now in paperback, by the way):

For those who read Of Mutts and Men: Were tears streaming down your face as you read the scene in the hospice room? I read it once and listened to the audiobook once, and it was powerful and moving both ways. When I go, I hope all my dogs come to “see me across.”

    I’ve left instructions with my family that if I should go first, I want my dogs to view my body so they will have closure and not wonder why I’m not “coming back.”
