Summary

The bonds we share with our pets go beyond words and are often deeper than many of our human relationships. What is the nature of these connections we feel so strongly? Could there be more to our pets' minds than we generally suppose? And what if our influence on them, both in life as well as supporting them through sickness and death, has a far greater impact than we may ever have considered? In this truly original book, David Michie draws together ancient Buddhist wisdom, supported by recent and intriguing scientific findings, to provide fascinating insights into animal consciousness. He proposes that the pets with whom we share our lives are not there by accident. Whether your animal companion has fur, feathers or fins, he offers a treasury of practical tools to enhance your relationship with them in everyday life, as well as during times of challenge. Written with humour and compassion, and including extraordinary true stories from around the world, Buddhism for Pet Lovers reveals how our animal companions may indeed be among our most precious partners. For in helping them, our own lives are incomparably enriched too.
