About the Author
Animals have always been an essential part of Anne-Marie Cadwallader’s life and that of her family’s. Animals, as pets or as wild encounters, have given their lives depth and dimension. They have taught them patience and tolerance, kindness and empathy, and have made them humble as they watch their instincts for survival. Living in Southwest Florida has brought them closer than ever to animals, domestic and wild, as they live in a community of dogs of every variety and of wildlife of many varieties. Anne-Marie treasures every moment of connection with these honest souls—even the tiniest gives so much!
