"If you are dedicated or interested in K9, then
you must have at least a small portion of love for a dog. Maybe that love is isolated to one breed or work. But once you truly
love that dog, you learn to love all breeds and types. And the process continues in that if you truly love dogs, you
learn to love other animals. Thus, the complete cycle of our human growth, our soul, if you will, will not complete the journey
of partnership with animals until we have accomplished the journey of loving ALL animals. Unfortunately, almost anyone can
get buy a dog and countless numbers are abused and neglected. But that fails in comparison to all of the other species that
are slaughtered through most horrendous conditions, captured, tortured, and eradicated from life itself. A life without animals
is a life I do not want to live. I want to particularly thank Jane Goodall for her incredible sharing. I have spoken to her
and attended her speaking engagements. I have also had contact with several staff members over a couple of years. Jane is,
without any question, the most respected authority on just about any subject involving animals. Her authority on Chimpanzees
is only the tip of an incredibly, spectacular speaker and a wonderful woman."
