About the Book

This narration of a life experience and the deep love shared with two special canines of the wolf persuasion comes from the heart. In sharing the story, the author hopes to connect with those who have known the amazing relationship that humans can have with animals of another species, and also awaken others to both appreciate and respect the uncanny sensitivity and intelligence that other species do possess.

People would often ask me with a startled look on their face, “You mean you have real wolves?” I would simply say, “Actually they have me.”

ALWAYS, I WAS AWAKENED
BY THE GIFT
OF A SONG
• • •
I LEARNED TO PLAY AGAIN
LIKE A HAPPY CHILD
UNINHIBITED, CAREFREE
• • •
THEY WERE IN THEIR ELEMENT
RUNNING, PLAYING
BUT
MOST OF ALL,
THERE WAS THE DANCE….
ON A CRYSTAL DAY, I CAN STILL SEE THEM
• • •
AND SO, YOU GO
AS WITH THE TRAIL OF SMOKE
WHISPERING FROM THE CANDLE
AS IT GOES OUT WITH
THE LIGHT AND LOVES OF MY LIFE

“I look forward to holding it (the book) in my hands, and through the book for others to know and love these two great hearted beings.”
—Susana Andrews


About the Author

Even though the author had obtained a Bachelor of Science degree, specializing in Medical Laboratory Science and worked in that capacity for most of her career, one of her favorite aspirations had always been writing, primarily in the form of poetry. Her inspiration usually stemmed from her quiet hikes and walks in the high desert and mountains that she loves, where she always enjoyed the natural world and wildlife that surrounded her.

When she found herself able to devote more time to her creative side by writing, she decided her dream of writing a book may finally be realized. She had the perfect subject matter in her beloved canine companions, E-Sup and Daza, and felt she owed it to them to tell the story of her life with them because of the love and many gifts they had shown her.

To write the story became her passion as she embarked on a very emotional journey through the days spent with them, wrapped in the close relationship that the three of them shared.
