BOOKS: Author-Marc Bekoff
Located in Boulder, Colorado, Marc Bekoff is one of the few authors on dog intelligence that makes “intelligent sense”. Working from a dog philosophy point of view, his dog books are well worth reading if you come from the stand-point that dogs are certainly capable of feeling, thinking and working problems out.

“I believe that all living organisms have souls and are souls. Regardless of what they look like, how they behave, or how similar to us they are, they have and are souls. Many people think that only humans have souls but then can’t tell us what they mean by the phrase “have souls.”
Perhaps we can get out of this loop by claiming that animals are souls, for souls are intangible – not physically graspable, if you will. Souls are part of the life force or spark itself. Perhaps even vegetation has it own sort of soul – who knows? Let’s not close the door on any possibilities. All life is kin.” ~ Marc Bekoff
