Edmund blasts across the yard against my calls to come in. He gleely runs off and I chase him across the grass only to find a unique butterfly or a sky filled with stars. As soon as I stop and admire, Edmund promptly comes to my side and rubs against me.

Do you ever wonder if there is more to your pet's behavior than meets the eye? Sometimes their antics are more than just random behavior. Can we learn something about ourselves by watching them?

I believe so and Climb that Fence take that Leap is a compilation of personal, inspirational animal stories and the life lessons I gleaned from them.

After enjoying these stories, hopefully you'll enjoy more quality time with your furry friend and know what it takes to Climb that Fence and Take that Leap!

I found this short read to have cute antics and deep insight.  I wish some of the bits would have had more relating to the animal correlation, but overall it was a nice read.  I too am an animal lover and found it easy to relate.  
It would be interesting to hear more stories from Johnsey's youth on the farm as well.  Perhaps that will be another book.


  1. I'm positive we can learn heaps by watching them.


  2. Sounds like a great read.
