Fifty years after the publication of Robert the Rose Horse comes Joan Heilbroner's second Beginner Book—A Pet Named Sneaker, with illustrations by Pascal Lemaitre. A madcap tale reminiscent of The Cat in the Hat, Go, Dog. Go!, and A Fish Out of Water, Sneaker is the story of a pet-store snake who longs for a real home. When he is finally adopted by Pete—a young boy charmed by Sneaker's uncanny ability to twist himself into different shapes—Sneaker not only proves himself a good pet, but proves to be a good student (sneaking into school with Pete and learning to read and write); a good citizen (saving a drowing toddler at a community pool); and a goodwill ambassador for the entire animal kingdom (inspiring the community to open the pool to all animals)! With delightfully understated, wickedly funny illustrations by Pascal Lemaitre, this is a fantastic, funny book that will sneakily get beginning readers reading on their own! This ebook contains Read & Listen audio narration.

When Barkk Barks, Listen! What’s the Right Pet for You? is an amazing story. If you own a pet or are thinking about it, this book is for you. It begins with an amazing dog named Barkk who tells much of the story as all kinds of pets are investigated including dogs and cats, , birds, ferrets, guppies, sea horses, exotic pets, riding horses, reptiles and amphibians, raccoons, barn yard animals and some questionable pets. You’ll discover many kinds: dogs ranging from Airedale to Yorkshire Terriers, Bulldog, Chihuahua, Cocker Spaniel, Dachshund, Doberman Pincher, Poodle, Pug, St. Bernard and more. Plus cats: Angora, Burmese, Oriental, Persian, Russian Blue, Siamese, Siberian and Ragdoll among others. You’ll also be able to consider guppies, ferrets, horses, birds, amphibians, reptiles, exotic and hazardous options plus training and caring for your pet. Pets can become an important part of your life whether single or family, rich or poor, famous or otherwise. They can also be mean, noisy, nosey and pesky. So much depends on how they are raised and treated. They have been known to rescue the fallen, sniff out trouble, sound an alarm as well as bite, scratch, whine and beg. They can be snugglers or loners, friendly or aloof. And some of course are impersonal, anonymous and unassuming. Barkk is the story-teller in this book. He earned his name as well as the right to share his experience with you. He will give you some advice on finding just the right pet as well as tips on caring for your pet. Barkk is not just an ordinary dog as you will discover, nor does he have all the answers. Even if he did, this book couldn’t share all of them. The chapters are short and to the point. You will also be given suggestions where else to turn as there are many wonderful resources. Yet there are not enough that cover all kinds of pets, their care and grooming, their strengths and weaknesses, mannerisms and dispositions. Some pets are more human-like than other animals. They show emotions, respond to commands, can be affectionate and a delight to have around. Here the give-and-take is exceptional, and soon they can be integrated into the family and become loyal companions. On the other hand, there are pets that are not human-like and even though cherished do not respond as other pets do. They are often kept on exhibit, make their owners proud and fulfill quite a different although important role. A rare turtle or an exotic lizard may never become true companions although they can fulfill important functions as pets. There are those who would not regard these as pets, and technically they may be correct, but they can fall into the broad spectrum as a pet (a domesticated animal kept as a companion, indulged and cherished . . . . As When Barkk Barks, Listen! is welcomed into your lives, you will gain entry into the exciting home of the Dorchesters: Dez, Mandy, Val, Anne and Timmy. You will be intrigued as you hear from all of them and their experiences with a generous spectrum of the animal kingdom. They will help you find just the right pet, and if you already have one, you will learn a lot from them. The book is easy reading (Barkk is written for all ages) and the chapters have been deliberately kept brief. Discuss this book with your friends, neighbors, siblings, parents and grandparents . . . Agree and differ but above all, enjoy your pilgrimage into the fascinating world of The Realm of Pets.

Paws and Listen

When starting to communicate with your pets, you might go through some fear,
anxiety or insecurity. It is a good idea to point out to the pets that the fear you
might be feeling is a fear of your own inabilities. Are they going to answer you?

Christmas Pudding and Pigeon Pie are two sparkling comedies from early in the career of Nancy Mitford, beloved author of The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate, here published in one volume with a new introduction by Jane Smiley. In Christmas Pudding, an array of colorful characters converge on the hunt-obsessed Lady Bobbin’s country house, including her rebellious daughter Philadelphia, the girl’s pompous suitor, a couple of children obsessed with newspaper death notices, and an aspiring writer whose serious first novel has been acclaimed as the funniest book of the year, to his utter dismay. In Pigeon Pie, set at the outbreak of World War II, Lady Sophia Garfield dreams of becoming a beautiful spy but manages not to notice a nest of German agents right under her nose, until the murder of her maid and kidnapping of her beloved bulldog force them on her attention, with heroic results. Delivered with a touch lighter than that of Mitford’s later masterpieces but no less entertaining, these comedies combine glamour, wit, and fiendishly absurd plots into irresistible literary confections.

Minutes later, I was banished from my own car by bared teeth and bristled fur, caught in the rain and dripping wet, foiled by the very creature whose cause I had just championed.

In Buji and Me, psychological therapist and animal behaviorist Wendy Kelly shares the principles of a dynamic, life-changing force that occurs when we allow our pets to become our teachers.

God uses people daily to communicate His fragrance and message to us. Too often we don't check to see what aroma or impression we are leaving for others to see, hear, or smell. After visiting someone's home or before checking out of a motel, or when moving, we double check to make sure we haven't left anything behind. Even criminals check to make sure they haven't left any clues at the crime scene to identify them. A story reminded me of this. A robber thought he had committed the perfect crime. He assumed he left no clues behind. But he didn't count on someone remembering how he smelled. The smell he left behind was what helped convict him. Yes, we leave something everywhere we go. Stuart Holden reminded a young man moving from a boarding house of this fact when the young man said, he was just double checking to make sure he wasn't leaving anything behind. "There's one thing you will leave behind, young man, your influence."

We often wonder why we are here, what we are to do with our lives, and why everything is the way it is for us: why we are so constantly in emotional quandaries, why relationships just don’t work out for us, and why we usually go through our days as we often do, in a rut of some kind or another. Follow the adventures of Emma, her feline companions, and her dear friend, Harry Jonathan Spruce, in her quest to solve the problems associated with his family home in Maine which have affected his entire life. This mystery has been psychically dictated and deals with all sorts of phenomena that enable all involved in the story to find out what the LIGHT is and how the changes they make for themselves affect not only everyone around them but the entire planet as well. It illustrates to the characters in a small Maine community how all of them and all of their actions have been connected since the beginning of time, and why this has been so.

A Communion of Subjects is the first comparative and interdisciplinary study of the conceptualization of animals in world religions. Scholars from a wide range of disciplines, including Thomas Berry (cultural history), Wendy Doniger (study of myth), Elizabeth Lawrence (veterinary medicine, ritual studies), Marc Bekoff (cognitive ethology), Marc Hauser (behavioral science), Steven Wise (animals and law), Peter Singer (animals and ethics), and Jane Goodall (primatology) consider how major religious traditions have incorporated animals into their belief systems, myths, rituals, and art. Their findings offer profound insights into humans' relationships with animals and a deeper understanding of the social and ecological web in which we all live. Contributors examine Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Daoism, Confucianism, African religions, traditions from ancient Egypt and early China, and Native American, indigenous Tibetan, and Australian Aboriginal traditions, among others. They explore issues such as animal consciousness, suffering, sacrifice, and stewardship in innovative methodological ways. They also address contemporary challenges relating to law, biotechnology, social justice, and the environment. By grappling with the nature and ideological features of various religious views, the contributors cast religious teachings and practices in a new light. They reveal how we either intentionally or inadvertently marginalize "others," whether they are human or otherwise, reflecting on the ways in which we assign value to living beings. Though it is an ancient concern, the topic of "Religion and Animals" has yet to be systematically studied by modern scholars. This groundbreaking collection takes the first steps toward a meaningful analysis.
