Do animals have souls? Do they affect ours? Do they make moral choices? In Soul of a Dog, Jon Katz explores these questions through stories of his border collie Rose. Not one for being petted or cuddled, Rose's integrity and devotion to running the farm are complete. When Jon is sick, Rose is the only one of the dogs who will not leave his side. Here, too, are fascinating looks at his other dogs Izzy, Lenore, and Pearl; his gentle, ethereal donkeys; and a 2,500-pound doughnut-loving steer named Elvis.

This writer thinks he can read animals minds and kills a perfectly healthy dog ... NOT RECOMMENDED TO READ THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE AN ANIMAL LOVER .. I have read every one of his book This man is neurotic ,,He thinks he can read an animals mind.. In every one of his books an animals dispatched after he writes a book about it,, Everything on his farm gets sick, becomes neurotic, and either is euthanized or taken out back and dispatched with a shot gun . All his animals become tiresome, but are milked one more time in death, until a new one is acquired and the cycle begins anew .just to find a new subject for his books,, .Dont believe me read these ..Any man who thinks his animals are telling him to kill them is neuritic.. , Some of these articles are wrote by the border collie association .Click on these…/1872515-jon-katz-s-status-dog-ex………/1872515-jon-katz-s-status-dog-ex……/bedlam-farms-jon…
