About the Book
Told from the perspective of a hospice social worker, Hospice Tails is a baker's dozen of stories about the animal companions of hospice patients and their families.

In these pages you will meet King, an abused pit bull fiercely loyal to his rescuer, Fizzle, a teacup poodle who guarded his human in death as well as life, Io and Oi, two cats who facilitated a beautiful conversation between their owners, and Lightning, a horse who helped a widower find the strength to go on.

Uplifting, matter-of-fact, sometimes funny and never sappy, Hospice Tails will change the way you think about the animals in your life.

"I loved it! I smiled, I cried, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. One of the things I liked most was that it wasn't just a good read. It was also an educational read. Intermixed in the stories is another story, the role of hospice. Debra told of hospice's relationship in people's lives without the reader knowing they were being educated. How great a gift of writing is that? Very great!" - Barbara Karnes, RN, Author of Gone From My Sight
