Format: Paperback
This is a clever book describing the challenges of owning a pet, any kind of pet, perfectly. It is filled with hilarious accounts of various animals interacting with their environment and each other. This book also touches a bit on the sentimental aspect of owning an animal. Miss Mantle's book is entertaining, well written, and gave me a new understanding and amusement of my own pet.

Ms. Mantle's down-to-earth writing style and her unusual experiences with animals makes this a fascinating read. Emotional without being maudlin, it offers a kaleidoscopic and often humorous perspective on living with wolf-hybrids, dogs, cats, and other animals. Animal lovers will enjoy reading this; non-animal lovers will likely be converted. Her book deftly analyzes pet ownership and its responsibilities and foibles without any sugar coating. Highly recommended!

Anyone who has ever had a pet knows that living with them is not always a cotton candy fairytale! Ms. Mantle does an excellent job of sharing her experiences as a pack leader in an entertaining way. Her stories are easy to identify with. Thanks for showing me I'm normal!

Format: Paperback
In this humorous and touching book about living with a large assortment of pets, author Stacy Mantle had me chuckling out loud to myself more than once.
The book is composed of small essay-like chapters that are an excellent way to relax and end a busy day with a smile on your face. One of my favorite chapters was "Falling Into The Food Chain", where Stacy happens to fall while vacuuming and cannot get up (this is not the funny part...yet). Her pets think that this is quite a fun game, and are seemingly amazed at how "into" the game she is as she crawls to the nearest telephone. What fun!
This book makes a wonderful gift for yourself, for all of the pet lovers in your life, and for all of the people who don't know they are pet lovers... yet.
