Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Sometimes it's easy to find the right gift for that difficult aunt: if she's devoted to her cat or dog, ship her a copy of Animal Blessings. The latest in a line of inspirational books from dog lover June Cotner (she also wrote and edited Graces, Bedside Prayers, and Get Well Wishes), this one, like the others, is slim, compact, and filled with entries that melt into the mind as easily as M&M's in the mouth. The writers range from the great (Whitman and Keats, Eckhart and Dostoyevsky) to children and Anonymous. So too do the entries vary widely. Rarely extending beyond half a page, they move from the humorous ("Say something idiotic and nobody but a dog politely wags his tail") to the sublime (Eckhart's "If I spent enough time with the tiniest creature ... I would never have to prepare a sermon. So full of God is every creature") to the silly ("scratch a dog and you'll find a permanent job"). Given that there are more than 100 million cat and dog owners in the United States alone, this book should fill a niche in many of their lives. And where else can you find Doris Day next to Elizabeth Barrett Browning? --Doug Thorpe

I wasn't sure what to expect from a book entitled, "Animal Blessings." What I found is a true gem. This book is a collection clever quotes, small anecdotes and heartfelt tributes to cats, dogs, horses and other pet animals. Some of them are old favorites; others are new musings on the joys of pet ownership. Each is no more than a page or two. It's a book you don't have to read through in consecutive order. Pick it up and read a page or two at random. Our pets are truly blessings in our lives, and this book is a wonderful way for us to express our love and thanks to them. Have a kleenex ready for the chapter devoted to pets who have passed on.

This is a great book for so many reasons! I bought this as a gift for someone and thought about keeping it for myself. It has wonderful little poems throughout. There is a whole section on the death of a pet as well containing poems, eulogies, and songs. A great book for anyone who has a special pet:)

I have given this book a number of times. To friends who have lost their pets, to friends who have recently acquired new pets and have gotten the same reaction - Thank you so very much! I can't go through it without a dry eye or a smile.

I was given a copy of this book after we lost our dog. I like it so much that I now get a copy for every friend who welcomes a new pet into their home or someone who loses a pet. Sometimes I cry and sometimes I laugh when I pick it up to read. I find myself going back to it every now and then and always find a page or two that brings a smile to my heart.

I purchased this book to use as for a pet memorial. As a veterinarian, sometimes part of my job is helping pets pass on, and I was using this for a memorial to pets that had passed on this past year. I purchased this book to use as part of the memorial. I picked out several prayers and poems and was very happy with this book. The prayers and poems were easy to read and many were a page long. I had several comments from families at the memorial about them liking the prayers and poems that I read. I think this book will serve me in many areas of veterinary medicine and is a great piece to have in my book collection. I could see this being a great addition to any pet lover.

Filled with wonderful suggestions for a variety of pet celebrations, from St. Francis Day pet blessings, to prayers for pets that have passed or are sick. Wonderful thanksgiving prayers for the animals who share our lives, and good suggestions of how to plan and execute a variety of celebrations. I used some of the prayers for a pet memorial service, and some for my personal Pet Blessing commemoration for my pets on the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Variety of non-denominational prayers, and prayers that can be tailored to suit any faith/belief background.
