Fascinating

This was an absolutely fascinating book. I have bought 4 print copies to give to friends, and to have in my own personal library. Temple points out the obvious, and the not so obvious. She brings to light some fascinating discoveries about wolves and how they relate to our beloved dogs, as well as pointing out how we can make our canine family members more comfortable. I have learned things I about the agricultural industry that everyone should know - though few of us do, and many of the points she brings up can make you think twice about how you react to all the animals and people around you.

educational

As a vegan, I thought the idea of her "squeeze box" for slaughter animals was disgusting. But then I realized that she is a realist in that not everyone feels the way I do about eating animals. She feels that if humans are going to raise animals for food, then the animals' basic needs should be met. She provides the reader with great advice on husbandry and interactions with dogs, cats, pigs, cows, poultry, horses, even wildlife and zoo creatures.
