Glenda Beall and Estelle Rice have documented that unique companionship offered by our furred, finned, and feathered friends. The community of animal lovers will cheer for the poodle who rode motorcycles, the rabbit that went to college, and all the other remarkable pets in these pages. It’s a pleasure to spend time with these creatures in a book that is funny, poignant, and full of warmth.
--Carol Crawford, poet, writer, teacher, owner of Carol Crawford Editing
The stories in this book are treasures, if for no other reason than their candid, colloquial narrative styles, and their deceptive, offhand images that give rise to the substance and depth of emotional experiences. It takes not only a skilled writer, but a finely sensitive person to write like these authors do. I think they have managed a difficult job with flying colors.
