No one wants to hear the diagnosis of cancer whether it’s for a human, or your furry family member. It’s a numbing and terrifying moment. Caring for Kingsley is a poignant journey into the world of canine cancer. I am delighted this book was written! Having a senior dog myself, and my daughter having a Llhasopoo that looks so similar to Kingsley, made this story feel closer to home.

The emotional rollercoaster of wanting everything to be okay for your four-legged family member is felt through these pages. I wouldn’t know where to start if a cancer diagnosis was given to one of my fur babies. Finding hope in Kingsley’s journey and what his parents do for him is inspiring! If you have fur-babies that are like your children’s to you, this book is a must read! Thank you for sharing this painful journey and spreading your light in the darkness.

A story that will touch the hardest of hearts. I could not imagine a beloved pet and it’s family going through all that Kingsley and his family had to face. The strength they all showed is outstanding. This is a great tale of the love for a pet and what you would do to save that pets life. Heartwarming read!

This book talks about love, loss and some topics which may trigger those with similar experiences.

Alli, her husband and their dog Kingsley are the and the perfect trio, they love life, walks, snuggles on the sofa and spending time with family and at only 8 years old, there is a lot of life left in him, that is until one day when it is discovered that Kinglsey has cancer. Alli and her husband are in shock and disbelief as Kingsley’s behaviour and attitude hadn’t changed at all, but it is all confirmed with a biopsy and some hard decisions have to be made when they are told that instead of years together, they may only have months.

As Alli and her husband come to terms with Kingsley’s diagnosis and the options for treatments and the time they have left with him, they feel devastated, despairing and hopeless, so Alli turns to research, she looks into all of the options, places where he can get treatment and things they can do themselves at home.

This book takes you through their experience from start to finish, it is a diary of sorts which takes you through the ups and downs associated with the diagnosis of cancer in a pet and how it affects the life of the pet and the owners alike. It is informative as the type of cancer, treatment options and other things affecting the emotional state of the family are explained in detail.

This book will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions, as you follow along on this journey of caring for a beloved pet with cancer.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The author of this book captivates the reader instantly with the love of Kingsley, their pet dog. She’s in complete shock that the dog she rescued is found to be suffering from a rare form of cancer. In this story the author walks the reader down a path of grief that is unimaginable, sharing the intense pain she felt having to see Kingsley through the stages of cancer. It hurt me as well knowing how much she wanted to love Kingsley and live with him through the birth and growth of her future children, yet this was taken away long before pregnancy. The pictures throughout the book are so important to the story and I felt like this puppy was my own. This very candid account of a life taken too soon is so perfectly written and leaves the reader with the knowledge of how to survive such a tragedy.

This story really hit home. My pets are my family. I love them like children, and the author does an incredible job of bringing that love to life. A cancer diagnosis would be heart breaking for anyone to go through with anyone they care about. Reading Kingsley’s journey showed me how different the last years could have been had I known that cancer was taking my pet before it was too late. I loved the funny stories of Kingsley in his youth, and then the heartbreak a family goes through trying to make the best decision for your pet. Wonderfully written, and almost painful to read, definitely pick this up if you are looking for a true story to tug your heartstrings.

Alli did such intense research at diagnosis and I could just feel the love showered onto Kingsley as a family memeber , nothing was too much she was determined to find the best treatment and the best care for Kingsley

I cried hard and I cheered for the small wins along the way ….

Thank you for sharing your heart and Kingsley with me ❣️🐾

I have one word for this book, WOW! I loved this book so much, even though it was a tearjerker. For those who do have or have had pets, know they are our babies, even when they come to us unexpectedly. It doesn’t take long for a bond to form and for the love to grow more and more each day! The author shares her heartbreaking, yet somehow rewarding story of Kingsley and his cancer diagnosis. She pours her heart out in these pages and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and was truly inspired!

Caring for Kingsley is an emotional read. When I read the description of the book I knew I needed to read it. I have lost fur babies in the past but just recently I lost one to cancer. While reading this book, I cried because I could feel everything Alli Eldridge was saying. The feelings are rawer because of the fact we cannot speak to dogs and cannot read their minds. Then the question of life and the quality that the animal is living. I really felt Kingsley’s story was true to the emotions and fears of any fur baby mom. I highly recommend this book. There is one small thing make sure you have kleenex close by because you are going to need it throughout the book. Thank you Alli Eldridge for putting feelings into words so wonderfully.

This is a sweet little story about a sweet little pup. Everyone that met Kingsley fell instantly in love and the author makes readers fall in love as well. The story of a family learning and growing through tragedy is a symbol of hope for others and a message about the power of love. If you have ever loved a furry friend, you will understand the turmoil of witnessing their struggle. Although they do not use words, they speak volumes every day. This book is one I will remember for years to come.
