Is your pet special? When you talk to it, do you feel it listening and even understanding? Has an animal ever saved your life - physically, emotionally or spiritually? Like humans, animals are spiritual beings. Their many qualities include unconditional love, joy, forgiveness, patience, courage, and gratitude - virtues that are often lacking in our high-tech world. We all know a pet that can anticipate its owners' return home, but did you know that some dogs have the ability to spot cancerous tumours?

Do pets possess an innate psychic ability which gives them powers of perception and even permits them to see into the future? It's time to take a look at what we humans might be missing...and to give our pets the respect that they are due.
