Pets save their owners.Pets rescue other pets.Cats are great navigators.So are birds.Animals have survived unbelievable tests of endurance.They have been unspoken heroes of wars,and some have been awarded the Victoria Cross.Dogs can do just about anything:Lyric,an Irish setter,saved her owner's life by dialling the emergency services and barking into the phone and Ireland's top sniffer dog found 9million pounds worth of heroin,was then captured by drug barons but escaped back to his handler.Pets have been used to ease the suffering of chronically ill children in hospital.Trained dogs,cats,goats,geese and monkeys have been used to help the blind,deaf,disabled or mentally ill.This book will celebrate and wonder at the marvels of animal behaviour.It will show valuable animals have become in our lives,and celebrate their bravery and intelligence.show more
