Soul of a Dog - Jon Katz

Product Description(
Do animals have souls? Some of our greatest thinkers—Aristotle, Plato, Thomas Aquinas—and countless animal lovers have been obsessed with this question for thousands of years. Now New York Times bestselling author Jon Katz looks for an answer. With his signature wisdom, humor, and clarity, Katz relates the stories of the animals he lives with on Bedlam Farm and finds remarkable kinships at every turn. Whether it is beloved sheepdog Rose’s brilliant and methodical herding ability, Mother the cat’s keen mousing instincts, or Izzy’s canine compassion toward hospice patients, Katz is mesmerized to see in them individual personas and sparks of self-awareness. Soul of a Dog will resonate with anyone who loves dogs, cats, or other animals—and who wonders about the spirits that animate them and the deepening hold they have on our lives.

My Thoughts:  This is the second book I've read from this author.  The book is really good and after reading this book I truly believe that animals have a soul.  They are integrated into our everyday lives and give so much without asking for anything in exchange,  except to love and care of them.  I've had dogs and cats over the years and each one of them had their own personality's .   So the big question is do you believe dogs or have a soul?  Read this book and it will give you a little insight into discovering this.

This book is also for 3 of my Reading Challenges......What an Animal, Outdo Yourself, and I Love Library Books.  You can check them out by clicking on the link.
