  • Heart-warming and thought-provoking reflections about sharing life with an animal companion


    The relationships we form with animals -“ with dogs, cats, horses, birds, rabbits, and other pets – are full of joys and rewards. A loving human-animal relationship is built on mutual care and concern, responsibility and respect. We find that these companions draw us out of ourselves and show us what it truly means to be alive. They teach us to accept life’™s struggles; to cherish its pleasures; to find purpose and meaning in what we do.


    The stories and reflections in this lovely book will speak to us whether we have an animal companion, long to have a pet, love someone who does, or simply cherish animals and nature.
