Recommended Reading: Companion Care
 
 
About

Here you can find a few books on various aspects of companion animal care that I’ve read and enjoyed. Naturally, most of the readings focus on dogs – since I’ve lived with ten dogs and only two cats (as well as a smattering of other animals, including orphaned sparrows, fish, a turtle and one rabbit) during my lifetime.

As always, I welcome your comments, suggestions and feedback. The comments section on this page is open, so leave ‘em if you got ‘em!
