  • I posted a request to Facebook, asking for people to send me a short audio recording describing an encounter or relationship with an animal. My inbox began to fill and I was moved by the breadth and depth of my friends' experiences.

    There were so many stories sent to me that I am working on Part Two (and maybe Three, Four, etc...). I'd gladly accept anyone's participation. If you'd like to contribute, feel free to send a short 10 to 20 second audio recording (without music) to dave-dot-huth-at-yahoo-dot-com.
