Why Are There So Many Animal Stories?

Several months ago I was watching Mark Nepo on the Oprah Winfrey network (OWN).  I don't remember how the topic came around to animals but evidently Mark asked a Native American elder why there were so many animal stories.  The wise elder responded:


"Animals never forget their original instructions, but human beings do.  So we need animals in our lives to remember the constancy of love, to be present, to be immediate to heaven here on earth."

How true is this? Can you relate? I sure can.

Maddie's favorite activity in the world!

Along those lines Rev. Ed Bacon, also on the OWN network commented that animals "have this power to show us our true selves."

Where on earth would we be without the animals in our lives?
