Dogs, Cats, Horses, and Other Pets

I can't imagine my life without my critters. For most of us who love animals, pets are way beyond just "pets." They are an essential family member. I remember at one point in our history not that long ago, when there were emergency evacuations, pets had to be left behind. Perhaps it is because people began to refuse to leave without them that now animals are included in evacuations and rescues from disasters.

On this page, you will find books where dogs, cats, horses, (and their wild relatives) play an important role. (I also have another index page for other Mammals.) As usual, a large part of the contents of this page will be coloring books, and since I have so many of just dogs, cats, and horses, I thought they needed a page of their own. I have also included other animals of which many people share their household. I personally have turtles, but other popular pets include rabbits, birds, fish, and assorted reptiles and amphibians. I have index pages for all these individual categories.

If you are an animal lover, you will surely find lots to enjoy on this page and the books listed here.
