This is a practical, encouraging, and motivational resource that will bring comfort and direction for the parent trying to walk the tightrope of maintaining their own personal spiritual quest and faithfully parenting their children.
Chaser has a way with words. She knows over a thousand of them—more than any other animal of any species except humans. In addition to common nouns like house, ball, and tree, she has memorised the names of more than one thousand toys and can retrieve any of them on command. Based on that learning, she and her owner and trainer, retired psychologist John Pilley, have moved on to further impressive feats, demonstrating her ability to understand sentences with multiple elements of grammar and to learn new behaviours by imitation. John’s ingenuity and tenacity as a researcher are as impressive as Chaser’s accomplishments. His groundbreaking approach has opened the door to a new understanding of animal intelligence, one that requires us to reconsider what actually goes on in a dog’s mind. Chaser’s achievements reveal her use of deductive reasoning and complex problem-solving skills to address novel challenges. Yet astonishingly, Chaser isn’t unique. John’s training methods can be adopted by any dog lover. Through the poignant story of how he trained Chaser, raised her as a member of the Pilley family, and proved her abilities to the scientific community, he reveals the positive impact of incorporating learning into play and more effectively channeling a dog’s natural drives. John’s work with Chaser offers a fresh perspective on what’s possible in the relationship between a dog and a human. His story points us toward a new way of relating to our canine companions that takes into account our evolving understanding of the way animals and humans learn.

She has been chosen, by divine force, to carry out a bizarre paranormal assignment: following her own untimely death, she is given new life, which she can then surrender to spare a child from experiencing death.

For Raven-as it would be for anyone in her place-this is an assignment that is easier said than done, especially as a self-absorbed teenager. But youth is the least of her concerns and is no excuse. Indeed the very fate of her soul depends on her ability to break free from her self-centered tendencies and better understand obedience and the true meaning of selflessness. Can she complete her mission, or is her soul in danger of condemnation?
