This is a "New York Times Notable Book" of 1994! Highly respected author, philosopher and animal trainer Vicki Hearne offers a treasure trove of animal anecdotes, all written in her unique and poetic style. Through entertaining stories about cats, horses, an ornamental carp, a scorpion, tortoises and other animals, she focuses on how each of these various creatures experiences happiness in its own special way. She discusses lions and language, the naming of pets and considers the process of mourning a loved dog's death.
