Made for Each Other
By Meg Daley Olmert

Oxytocin isn't just for breast feeding anymore. Meg Daley Olmert's fascinating journey into the scientific, evolutionary, and historical factors that help to explain our love for animals is a must-read for anybody who has ever asked themselves "Why can't I resist those sad, puppy-dog eyes?"

Olmert explains the chemical process behind the bonds we form with animals, as well as the positive -- even therapeutic -- benefits both species confer upon one another.

While this is indeed a complex topic, the book is a page-turner, accessible to anybody with an interest in animals. It also makes for for an interesting and uplifiting holiday gift!


An Odyssey with Animals: A Veterinarian's Reflections on the Animal Rights & Welfare Debate
by Dr. Adrian R. Morrison

Professor Morrison’s odyssey with animals began in his childhood, but it took an abrupt and alarming turn in 1981. That year, Dr. Edward Taub, another neuroscientist, was accused of animal cruelty and Morrison made the momentous (and courageous) decision to testify on Taub’s behalf at his trial. That testimony brought him to the attention of extremists who opposed animal research and to a position of leadership among researchers for his willingness to speak out.  Even as radicals trashed his laboratory, harassed his neighbors and colleagues, and accused him of torturing the cats used in his research, he persevered to become a leading spokesman for biomedical research and for good animal welfare practices in laboratories.

Odyssey is partly a story of Morrison’s role as defender of animal research and partly a thought-provoking self-examination of his own perception of the human-animal bond in all of its forms. However, the core of the book is a wonderful glimpse into the laboratory and the dedicated researchers who make medical progress possible. Although others have written of Taub, John Orem, Thomas Gennerelli, and Morrison himself, none have done so as insiders who can speak with authority on the canons of research and the character and dedication of those who do the work.

Two fun volumes for the home library and for gifts!
