In the beginning, God created man and woman. Then He said, “That is good,” but wondered, “What can I do that man will accept and not challenge in the slightest?
What will please him and comfort him and live with him in perfect harmony?
What can I do that will calm him when he is mad or upset, yet be understanding and not really demand much of anything?
Is there anything I can do that will touch his heart day after day, yet constantly be his friend?”
God’s rumination led to the lovely addition of house pets to our daily lives. And today, we have… Fuzzball and Baron.
Baron is a salt-and-pepper Miniature Schnauzer, and Fuzzball is an orange, tiger-striped Tabby—Bill Blair’s pets.
In this book, he looks at the fascinating way man and his pets have evolved over the centuries, along with a closeness and rapport. Did you ever wonder why it is we get so close to our pets and begin to treat them as equals?
Worse, how we expect them to respond like equals when we communicate with these animals?
As “Fuzzball and Baron” shows, oftentimes, our pets are superior in intelligence to their humans—or at least they act that way!
