The Book

Soul500H“Part animal primer, part detective tale, part existential treatise, veterinary behavioral medicine expert Vint Virga’s new book takes us in the minds and motivations of our four-legged friends, and reveals what their actions can show us about ourselves (if we stop to pay attention)… just as apt for the Personal Growth as the Nature section of the bookstore.”   — Animal Sheltering
