Pet, Plant and Person Photographic Portraiture by Janet Keen


If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty and gratitude then animals are better off than a lot of humans. 
James Herriot.

 and Teddy

The eye is the window of the soul, the mouth the door. 
The intellect and the will are seen in the eye; the emotions, sensibilities and affections, in the mouth.
 The animals look for man's intentions right into his eyes.
 Even a rat, when you hunt him and bring him to bay, looks you in the eye. Hiram Powers, American sculptor (1805 - 1873)



Flowers always make people feel better, happier and more helpful, they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
Luther Burbank.




Trees and plants always look like the people they live with somehow.
Zora Neale Hurston





Goats possess individual character, intelligence, and capacity for affection which can only be matched by the dog. 
 Having once become acquainted with them I would as soon farm without a dog as without a goat. –David Mackenzie, Farmer in the Western Isles




Meet Murdoch




Dogs are not our whole life but they make our life whole. 
Roger Caras


Time spent with cats or dogs is never wasted.
Sigmund Freud.

Until one has loved an animal, a part of ones soul remains unawakened. Anatole France.
