I am not a big fan of stories where animals talk (maybe thanks to the traumas experienced listening to Dumbo and Bambi as they lost their mothers). So I started reading this with a chip on my shoulder already. But I was soon swept up into the stories and quickly became choked up with the plight of the animals involved. We humans can certainly be jerks, but the author points out that animals don't judge us, despite the poor behavior exhibted towards many of them. They take what comes and are grateful for the smallest kindness, returning unconditional love, Certainly some of the stories are sad, but in the end they will lift you up with the knowledge that there are still many people trying to make up for the members of the human race that haven't a clue about the proper treatment of animals. (Proceeds from the sale will go to animal welfare, also. So this would make a great holiday gift.)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A must read for all animal lovers. Sit back and take a morning stroll along the beaches of Washington state while you listen to the activities of the animals and their human companions along the way. We are reminded through the delightful, sometimes heart-breaking, stories that each being comes to Earth with a right to exist. At the urging of the author, we are asked to become involved in some way to address and promote animal welfare. Somehow, we humans need to be reminded of their rights and ultimately take action to protect our dear animal friends. The watercolor by Ellaine Shannon on the back cover is truly delightful as it adds personality to the characters involved throughout the book.Was this review helpful?

Here is a book you won't be able to put down. Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, always poignant, this collection of beautifully written animal stories is a most rewarding read. I highly recommend this book for all pet owners (adults and children alike) and for anyone who appreciates a well-told, heartfelt story. Another great thing I've learned about this book is that all of the proceeds will go to well-deserving animal welfare agencies. I personally have purchased five copies to give this year as Christmas presents, and I urge you to do the same and help some animals as well.Was this review helpful?

This wonderful compilation of REAL stories about REAL animals sent me on a roller-coaster ride of emotions, for which I wasn't prepared! I cried, I laughed, I ached with hope for some of these innocent furry friends. I am and have been an animal lover all my life and have never lived without the company of Dog Friends. THIS BOOK truly altered my relationship with my own dogs, and all those touching my life. I recommend and encourage anyone who lives with an animal friend, thinks of themself as an 'animal lover' or would like to learn so much more about what these Animal Voices can teach you....JUST TRY THIS BOOK. You will be thanking the author. It's a MUST READ for dog-lovers, and the ultimate gift for their animal-loving family & frends this Holiday Season!Was this review helpful?
