Sara Krill lives in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin with her husband Jeff, their beagle Sophia, and their cat Lena. She writes about pets as a way to describe how the animal-human bond can be forged with little effort, and rewarded with endless love and joy. Sara's philosophy about pets is simple. Animals have an amazing, quiet way of filling empty places within the heart - a way no other being can. When welcomed into a person's life, they represent the essence of true friendship and unconditional love.Review:
Before reading My Pal Lou: the Story of Me, I saw dogs as interesting and intelligent, and basically lumped them into two categories dogs who were affectionate and loving, and those who were edgy and a bit intimidating. After getting to know Lou through the pages of this heartwarming book, I saw that a dog can be incredibly unique with traits that endear and qualities that exasperate. In other words, dogs now seem as multi-dimensional to me as people. --Mary Meehan, Ph.D., President, Alverno College, Milwaukee, WI
A must read for pet lovers everywhere. This special story of Lou and the impact that he had on the author s life will leave you laughing, crying, and remembering your own special pets. Ms. Krill carefully captures the healing that can take place when we love a pet. --Barbara Bartlein, RN, MSW, CSP and Author
