· A dog who gave her pup mouth-to-mouth resuscitation
· A budgie who ‘manned’ the reception desk at a pub
· Telecom’s Spot, the feisty little jack Russell terrier
· An oil-freak cat who eased a woman’s pain
· Cows who knew just what to do for a bereaved male.
"Animals play such an important part in the lives of most New Zealanders, and every day I have someone telling me a humorous, endearing or inspirational story of a dog, cat, horse or sheep that has provided a memorable moment. Smarter than Jack is a wonderful record of many similar yarns to illustrate the tremendous bond between New Zealanders and their animals." – Mark Leishman

It will not only change the way you think aobut animals, but also how you view peoples’ treatment of them." – Peter Mason, SPCA National President
