Iâ€™ve encountered many non-human creatures on my lifeâ€™s journey. Iâ€™ve owned snakes, turtles, canaries, parakeets, pigeons, dogs, and cats. Iâ€™ve had hilarious encounters with such diverse creatures as a kamikaze bee and a pot-bellied pig who thinks sheâ€™s human. Iâ€™ve studied and observed black bears, eagles, osprey, red-tailed hawks, moose, deer, loons, raccoons, ducks, geese, opossums, skunks, and many other wild creatures. I have found each and every one of these animals to be a unique and wondrous being. Animals have truly brought fullness to my life. Some of them have also brought deep anguish and pain. Each person or animal depicted in this book has taught me something. Some of these lessons have been humorous, some painful, and some extremely sad. Yet I truly believe that my encounters with all sorts of animals have been an integral part of making me who I am today â€“ an avowed â€˜animal person.â€™

Owning and loving an animal is like riding a roller coaster. One minute, you’re on top of the world - laughing, smiling, and playing with your pet. The next minute, you’re plummeting to the bottom, you’ve got a gut-wrenching ache in your stomach, and you know you’re going to be sick because one of your beloved pets is gravely ill or injured.
Yet, I truly believe that getting to know any type of animal, and loving it, is definitely worth this exciting, yet harrowing, roller coaster ride.About the Author:
