    I loved this. First caught up by the quirkiness of the first story and then touched and surprised by the stories of women in varied circumstances all intertwined with animals of some sort. A real treat and it's a beautiful volume.

    Meaningful stories

    Megan Mayhew Bergman writes these stories with emotion and charm. Each story has its own feeling and the characters become all too real. I love the way Megan mingles the characters with different animals and how each animal has their own significance to the story.

    A must read for any short story lover and animal lover.

    As I began reading this book, I found myself being put off by the continuing use of the book to promote the author's very obvious political beliefs. I happen to share most of them, but I think  a book shouldn't be used as a bully pulpi. I imagine that with maturity, will come less of a heavy hand, politically. Having said that, I plodded on, because of my lve for animals. And in facat, what ultimately redeems this book is the author's  compassion and advocacy for animals. She gives you the "inside skinny" on the situations of many animals.  If you are about our fellow creatures, this books is worth it. Don't give up on it; hang in there, and you will be glad you did!

    I read the first story and thought it was depressing, read the second story and thought it was just dumb. I thought these were stories where animals played the starring role. The animals are more accessories, and the people are pathetic.
