Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home: And Other Unexplained Powers of Animalsby Rupert Sheldrake
Synopses & Reviews
How do cats know when it's time to go to the vet, even before the cat carrier comes out? How do dogs know when their owners are returning home at unexpected times? How can horses find their way back to the stable over completely unfamiliar terrain?
With a scientist's mind and an animal lover's compassion, world-renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake presents a groundbreaking exploration of animal behavior that will profoundly change the way we think about animals — and ourselves. After five years of extensive research involving thousands of people who have pets and work with animals, Dr. Sheldrake proves conclusively what many pet owners already know: there is a strong connection between humans and animals that defies present-day scientific understanding. This remarkable book deserves a place next to the most beloved and valuable books on animals, including When Elephants Weep, Dogs Never Lie About Love, and The Hidden Life of Dogs.
A thoughtful study of the psychic powers of animals provides anecdotal evidence of animals' telepathic communication, along with thought-provoking analyses of the unique relationships that exist between pet owners and their companions. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.
