This is a great book to share with other animal lovers! I got my first copy off PBS and lent it out to some friends and they loved it and wanted to keep it! I have it back on my wish list now for a present for my pastor! I would highly recommend it to anyone who has ever valued a pet as a family member, best friend, or attending angel! The Andersons have a way of describing the emotion and depth of the connection between humans and animals that you can not only understand but feel.
