Pick up a Denver Post this Sunday for my story on animal ethics expert Temple Grandin
I recently had the good fortune of interviewing Temple Grandin, Ph.D., a leader in the field of animal ethics. Passionate and articulate, Dr. Grandin expressed opinions on topics ranging from coyotes in Greenwood Village to dog clothing to circuses.
The author of 10 books and an internationally sought-after speaker, Temple Grandin is particularly impressive given that she is autistic.
Please pick up a Sunday Denver Post and look for the centerpiece of the Books pages in the Arts & Entertainment section. Dr. Grandin's most recent book, "Animals Make Us Human," spent four weeks on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list.
Raising a pound puppy and adopting another certainly taught me a lot about love and life, humanity and divinity. The photo courtesy of The Denver Post shows my late-great friend Copper taking it easy in my secret garden. I learned a lot about dogs--and other critters wild and domesticated--from Dr. Grandin's new book. If you're an animal-lover you'll appreciate the book and the upcoming interview.
