Homer by Gwen Cooper
"I loved Gwen Cooper's "Homer's Odyssey" and, like many, felt like Homer was one of my own pets. I laughed and cried with Gwen at Homer's exploits. It was one of the most joy-filled books I'd ever read, covering the first 12 years of Homer's life w..." Read more of this review »

“My philosophy when it came to pets was much like that of having children: You got what you got, and you loved them unconditionally regardless of whatever their personalities or flaws turned out to be. ”
Gwen Cooper, Homer's Odyssey
tags: pets

“So I didn't adopt Homer because he was cute and little and sweet, or because he was helpless and needed me. I adopted him because when you think you see something so fundamentally worthwhile in someone else, you don't look for the reasons - like bad timing or a negative bank balance - that might keep it out of your life. You commit to being strong enough to build your life around it, no matter what. In doing so, you begin to become the thing you admire.”
Gwen Cooper, Homer's Odyssey

“Love is love, whether it goes on two legs or four.”
Gwen Cooper
