When we were offered a chance to read the new book “Love Can Be: A Literary Collection About Our Animals” we couldn’t wait to dive into it. Not only does it celebrate the love we share with animals, proceeds go to animal welfare organizations!
Through beautiful short stories and poems thirty different writers share the experiences they have had with various animals. Of course as a dog lover I was touched by all the amazing dog stories in the collection.
Anyone who has had the joy of spending part of their life with a pet will appreciate and relate to the authors, no matter what the species. The collection includes stories of beloved pets, and even wildlife. There was even a story about a rhino!
I really enjoyed the varied styles of each of the author. It was heartwarming to read the memories they had, and it was also interesting to see how each person chose to express themselves. You might want to keep a tissue handy though, as some of the stories are bound to make you teary.
The collection was complied by The Kirkpatrick Foundation, an Oklahoma-based philanthropy committed to improving the lives and welfare of animals across the country, and the proceeds will be donated to designated animal charities. The book is intended as a limited edition, so be sure to get your copy while you can.
