Professional Reviews

Susan Chernak McElroy
"Books on ritual and ceremony are far too rare as it is, but rarer still---and so of even greater value---is this unique collection of prayers, blessings, and ceremonies for animals, and for the humans who love and cherish them. I suggest reading this at one sitting, straight through, to completely saturate your mind with the notion of animal ceremony and ritual. Then, go back and savor each image and word. With this book, Diana offers encouragement to all of us who would honor our animal family members at the critical junctures of their lives with us. Comings, leavetakings, births, illnesses, times of special joy---all these are moments to mark with ritual, and Diana gives us all the tools we need to create our own blessings for the animals. What a gift!"

Susan Chernak McElroy, best-selling author of Animals as Teachers & Healers: True Stories & Reflections and Why Buffalo Dance: Animal & Wilderness Meditations Through the Seasons.

Mark Bekoff
"Blessing of the Animals is a most welcomed resource for celebrating the deep reciprocal relationships that humans form with a wide variety of nonhuman animals. Stories, prayers, poems, and ceremonies filled with respect, compassion, and love honor the place that animal beings play in human lives."

Mark Bekoff, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals & editor of The Encyclopedia of Human-Animal Relationships: A Global Exploration of our Connections with Animals.

Katherine Blanc
"Poignant, powerful, yet surprisingly playful, Blessing of the Animals is a heartwarming blend of timeless tradition, sparkling wit, and contemporary celebrations of all animals wild and tame. Highly recommended."

Katherine Blanc, author of Bad Puppy's Guide to Life and Bad Kitty's Guide to Life.
