HASH(0xa63fdf9c) out of 5 stars Not just sweet and loveable Jan. 8 2009
By Paul Castleman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Almost Perfect is not just another warm and fuzzy collection of stories about pets. It is an important contribution to the millions of people who have pets and to those who are considering adopting one. Just as more and more people are adopting children with special needs and finding the experience a transcendent one of giving and receiving love, so are those who share their lives with disabled animals finding it profoundly heart-opening and spiritually joyful. The authors of Almost Perfect have a remarkable knack for conveying their relationships with these wonderful pets and I strongly recommend this book.

HASH(0xa6813c90) out of 5 stars Five star inspiration May 19 2010
By Desert Diva - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because a friend had a story published in it. My friend lives on a Greek island where, besides being a wonderfully creative author, she has a gazillion pets. I expected to love her story. I did. I also loved every other story in the book. What a great treat. Great gift idea.

I really enjoyed reading "Almost Perfect" The stories were well written and you could feel the love these people had for their pets through the words they used. It really expresses what all people feel when they have had a pet especially over a number of years.My family and myself have had a number of dogs over the years and we were always very attatched to them. When they left this world the grief and sadness we felt is hard to describe.
These stories are different from my situation in that the owners were dealing with pets who had disabilities. Caring for their pets required so much of their time which they gave so unselfishly. These stories sum up what the word "love' really means.We read and hear so many stories about the bad things that us humans can do. This book really lifted my spirits. It shows that there are still plenty of people who live their lives as good,caring individuals. We as a society need to focus more on the "good" people in our world and not get discouraged by the "bad".Reading this book is a great example of how to do that.
