About this title:

Synopsis: This anthology documents the surprising and wonderful ways animals have expressed their love for the people and other animals in their lives. The Wonderful Thing About Pets does not contain clichd stories about orphaned puppies or stray kittens. These stories are unusual, like the iguana that saved it's owner's life; they are humorous, like the hamster who consistently out-picks the pros at football pools; they are touching, like the rabbit who acts as a "seeing-eye dog" to another rabbit; and they have made national news headlines, like the cat who braved a blazing inferno to rescue its kittens.

The author, Gary Burghoff, is the host of the successful public television show "Pets: part of the family." Gary has long been known as an animal activist, and his efforts both on and off the show have recently been featured in People and Time magazines. With illustrations by award-winning artist Greg Dearth, this collection defines the depth and timelessness of the human-animal bond.

From the Inside Flap: The Wonderful Thing about Pets: Remarkable stories about the animals who share our lives

Anyone who loves animals knows there is a special bond that develops between owners and their pets, and even between their pets and other animals. But what they may not know is the sometimes dramatic ways in which that bond can make itself visible. The Wonderful Thing about Pets is a collection and celebration documenting the surprising and wonderful ways animals have expressed their love for the people and other animals in their lives.

The Wonderful Thing about Pets will show you that animals are capable of so much more than you might suspect. The stories are delightful: You'll read about the hamster who consistently outpicks the pros at football pools and the dog who is more miserly than Ebenezer Scrooge. They are heroic: The iguana who saved its owner's life and the cat who made national headlines when she braved a blazing inferno to rescue her kittens. They are heartwarming: You'll meet the rabbit who acts as a "Seeing Eye dog" to another rabbit, and the dog who befriended a lonely and cold field mouse.

All this and much more is brought to you by Gary Burghoff, the Emmy award-winning actor who now hosts the public television show Pets: Part of the Family. His efforts as an animal activist, both on and off the show, have been featured in People and Time magazines. As a devoted animal advocate and talented communicator, Burghoff is uniquely qualified to bring you these amazing animal stories.

Whether you're a pet owner, an animal lover, or merely curious about the special bond between people and animals, The Wonderful Thing about Pets will bring you amazement, laughter, and a better understanding of the intimate knowledge that only animals can teach us.
