I will have to remember that about librarians. My neighbor is a retired librarian, and has a pack of collies. So she'll appreciate it. One thing I am finding fascinating is how social media has become the oral culture for spreading stories, particularly stories about animals. Some are sad, but others are hopeful. And many reinforce the idea that humans and animals are equals. Cathy On Tue, 10 Jun 2014, Dean, Thomas K wrote: > From: yote 54 [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] > > Thank you for your input! Being of Irish extraction, I can appreciate the importance of storytellers, especially in the schools. I also feel blessed to have had animals in my life growing up. Just saw a link where children are reading to shelter cats.

My uncle had a German Shepherd and now I have two. They are so sweet and tolerant of me and so much smarter. > > I used to have horses at the farm that would look on me benevolently and you could tell they knew it was their job to take care of the human. I used to tell people if you are afraid of horses, you probably don't need to work with them, since if you are afraid that, being prey animals, they think there is something to be afraid of. > > It is nice to read comments on a listserv of like minded people. > > > > -- > --
