Ode to pets

Ode to pets

Early in my career I discovered the humanizing influence of animals. I used to have a website page called ANIMAL THERAPISTS. You can still see many of those photographs mixed into this newer website. I, like many, have relationships with family pets that feel stronger than many of my connections with humans. Pets have the power to influence our lifestyle and priorities; they seem to find their own niches within our homes.
