            Tom Inglis and his dog Pepe have lived together for seventeen years: endless days of walks and play and the odd bit of chaos. While Tom was experiencing joy and grief and everything in between, Pepe was by his side, ready for the next day. Now, though, they are both getting old. ...Tom is reflecting on the strange but wonderful bond they have developed, but he is not entirely sure what Pepe is experiencing or thinking about, if indeed she is thinking at all. A Dog is for Life looks at the relationships we have with our dogs. It explores why we take on the hassle of caring for these pet animals who rely on us so completely, who can create mess and upset in our lives, and who will probably die before us, leaving us to behind to grieve. We know all of this before bringing them home for the first time, and yet we go on ahead, time after time. As dogs enrich and disrupt the lives of their owners, becoming the constant around which days are scheduled and holidays are planned, what do they make of it all? How well do we actually understand them? And what exactly is that powerful, intangible connection we humans have forged with them? A Dog is for Life is a moving and engaging exploration of life alongside man's best friend. It is a book for everyone who has ever loved a dog.

            An intimate memoir on the work and wonder of ranch life, critiquing the inhumane and environmentally destructive factory farm system and offering sustainable alternatives for ethical omnivores. Although there are nearly 100 million cattle in the United States, these animals are o...ften ignored or dismissed. In Meditations with Cows, Shreve Stockton inspires a more reverential attitude toward these affectionate and intelligent creatures as she shares captivating stories and photos of ranch life. At the center of the narrative is Daisy, the matriarch of the herd. Through the daily ritual of milking, Stockton forges a relationship with Daisy that transcends seasons: When you have a milk cow, you are together every day, no matter the weather, no matter either of your moods. The hind leg of this 1,200-pound animal towers over you as you crouch beside her... both of you aware of the fact that one well-aimed kick could kill you if she wished. Yet, you are allowed to rest your cheek and forehead against her warm belly as you milk... her trust in you entwined with your trust in her, you become family. For anyone who loves animals or cares about the environmental impact of their food, Stockton explores conservation and the important role of cattle in local ecosystems, models the humane treatment of animals, and shows how pastured cattle can be our allies in averting climate crisis. Blending together narrative, science, and thoughtful reflection, Meditations with Cows offers a moving portrait of the rhythms of work, life, and death on the ranch.

            Desperate to connect with his native Galloway, Patrick Laurie plunges into work on his family farm in the hills of southwest Scotland. Investing in the oldest and most traditional breeds of Galloway cattle, he begins to discover how cows once shaped people, places and nature in t...his remote and half-hidden place. This traditional breed requires different methods of care from modern farming on an industrial, totally unnatural scale. As the cattle begin to dictate the pattern of his life, Patrick stumbles upon the passing of an ancient rural heritage. Always one of the most isolated and insular parts of the country, as the twentieth century progressed, the people of Galloway deserted the land and the moors have been transformed into commercial forest in the last thirty years. The people and the cattle have gone, and this withdrawal has shattered many centuries of tradition and custom. Much has been lost, and the new forests have driven the catastrophic decline of the much-loved curlew, a bird which features strongly in Galloway's consciousness. The links between people, cattle and wild birds become a central theme as Patrick begins to face the reality of life in a vanishing landscape.
