The Compassion of Dogs: True Stories of Animal Courage and Kindnessby Kim Dearth
Cultivated by centuries of loyalty, the compassion of a dog is a connection that goes well beyond the basic pet-owner relationship. It characterizes the ability of dogs to sense the emotions of humans and generate deep and loving responses in the most adverse situations. The Compassion of Dogs is a celebration of the tender relationships that humans and dogs share. Readers will find a fabulous collection of true stories that illustrate how dogs display such emotions as compassion, courage, intuition, and loyalty. These fascinating accounts of the powers of animal-human relationships feature the innate responses of dogs and their aptitude for seizing any opportunity to play humble hero, all the while earning the respect, love, and admiration of all who cross their trail.
