Book Review: Almost Perfect, Edited by Mary A. Shafer

Almost Perfect – Disabled Pets and the People Who Love Them, an anthology of eleven stories of animals with special needs edited by Mary A. Shafer, is more than just a collection of heartwarming pet stories.   I’ve always believed that animals come into our lives to teach us, and the lessons from these wonderful animals with often seemingly insurmountable challenges and their compassionate human caretakers are truly inspirational.   You will learn about courage from a blind Huskie mix who trades the horrible life of a puppy mill for living on a farm.  You will be inspired by the grace with which a paralyzed tuxedo cat finds moments of joy each and every day.  You will be amazed by a Labrador-Doberman mix with a devastating muscle wasting disease who gives new meaning to the term “roll with the punches.” 

These wonderful stories will remain with you long after you’ve read them.  They will delight and inspire you.  You will laugh, and you will cry, and you will get a better understanding of why caring for a disabled pet can be immensely rewarding.

The Conscious Cat is delighted to present  a teleseminar titled Inspired and Inspiring – The Rewards and Challenges of Living with Disabled Pets.  On Tuesday, May 11 at 8pm Eastern,  Mary Shafer will join Barbara Techel, the author of Frankie the Walk ‘n Roll Dog and Frankie the Walk ‘n Roll Therapy Dog Visits Libby’s House to share how their disabled pets have enriched their lives in ways they never could have imagined.  You will get an opportunity to ask questions or share your own stories.  The seminars are free, but long distance phone charges may apply.  To participate in the conference, simply dial 1-712-432-3100.  When prompted, enter conference code 674470

Mary and Barbara are offering autographed copies of their books to one lucky winner each.  If you’d like to be entered into the drawing for the books, you will need to register for the seminar here.

FTC full disclosure:  this book was sent to me by the publisher.
