OUR FAITHFUL COMPANIONS is the class that I would have wanted to take from Dr. Aubrey Fine. His stories show how we learn about people and about ourselves from our dogs how they teach us about caring,compassion, patience, and empathy. The great spiritual and emotional connection that we have with our dogs jumps from his heart and off of these pages. Every day, my own dogs make me smile. In this wonderful book, Dr. Fine – and his own dogs - did just that onevery page.
