How can we live in greater harmony with ourselves, our animals, and the world around us? How can we communicate better with our animals and improve the quality of life for all? What happens to people and animals when when we die, and how can we focus on the quality of the death experience as well as the quality of life experience? These are some of the questions Joanne asked in her book Animal Teachings from Hayley's Angels Methods.

When it comes to communicating with animals, I offer this example from my own life: My dog Velvet recently came barging into the bedroom, lay on the floor, and refused to leave. Velvet has free reign of the most the house and the backyard but not the bedroom. If it were up to me Velvet would also have free reign of the bedroom too, but relationships always require agreements that meet the needs of everyone. So with this in mind, not only did Velvet barge into the bedroom, but she refused to leave without me leading her out by the collar. While Beth was asking why this was happening, I realized it was because Velvet was telling me that she badly wanted for us to take her on a run. She had not been on one for a couple weeks and the weather that day was ideal for it. We were short on time, but I agreed with Velvet to take her on her walk. In exchange, I wanted from her a quick bath first because she spent some time rolling in the dust and was covered in dust and dirty. She wanted to run out in the Rillito riverbed but because of time constraints, we took her to a nearby area where she and Jane Doe, my other dog, could be let off the leash for a bit. After letting off some steam, the dogs were happy and good, and they didn't try to come and occupy the bedroom. The kind of animal communication that Joan speaks of in her book is along these lines.

She also speaks of controversial issues such as birth control for animals and people, medicine, living for a better world, and many other fascinating subjects. She advises people to know the personalities of the animals in their lives and recognize that many pets' behavioral problems are actually caused by humans. She even touches on the idea that people and their pets often show striking similarities in their ailments.

Joanne also seems to blend humanism with animal rights, two concepts that are too often more like and oil and water when in fact, both are necessary. She believes that taking good care of our animals is a major ingredient in the improvement of society. It is good to love both humans and animals. I can say that I've seen animals teach people lessons of compassion, caretaking, and other valuable living skills. I've also seen communities judged by how they treat their animals—some serious food for thought.
