Have you read any Jon Katz books? I just finished reading his book about his dog, Rose, and I have identified so much with this man. He is teaching me so much about animals.
I invite you to go over and read his blog: Bedlam Farm. I've linked you to a funny post that I really enjoyed. (it's sort of political) If you like it, I hope you will hang around and read more of his blog. I look forward to his daily entries and check my email each morning to see them. His wife, Maria, is an fiber artist and I enjoy reading her blog, too.
Let me know if you visit him.
