Allen and Linda Anderson are founders of Angel Animal Network and authors of 15 books about the spiritual qualities of animals. In Allen’s most recent book A Dog Named Leaf, he tells the story of adopting a traumatized Cocker Spaniel with emotional and behavioral challenges. This troubled dog Leaf eventually transforms into a spiritual partner for Allen and eventually saves his life. Allen talks with Dr. Mercy about his spiritual belief system, his methods of communication with dogs, their paranormal capacities, and lessons for human development. He asks the question ‘are you a better person because of your dog?’ Listeners will enjoy Allen’s gentleness and humor.
