Picky the Marvelous Chicken was not Ma’s idea of a good pet. She only agreed to keep the chick for a couple of weeks – three at the very most! – until her daughter could find a home for it. The young chick, however, did not like to be left alone, which is how she began spending her days snuggled securely in Ma’s apron pocket and, later, following along as Ma did her work. And to her surprise, Ma found that Picky responded to her gentle care in some very unexpected ways.
Young readers will delight in the endearing antics of Picky the Marvelous Chicken and her loving, patient caregiver.$2.99–$19.99
Dr. Ellicott has always been a lover of animals, especially dogs. She loved all the ones in her possession, starting with Bingo, then Shelly, then Teddy, then Andrew, and now TEKO! She loved them all and had a place in her heart for each of them! TEKO, who had traveled from North Carolina to a New Jersey shelter, was asleep when Dr. Ellicott first saw him. The sign on his cage said TKO (Total Knock Out). When they first met, he was a “gentleman” and acted like a “gift from heaven”! He always wanted to please and followed commands well. He is extremely intelligent and has a phenomenal memory for people and places. His empathy is profound. He seems to read her emotions. Dr. Ellicott discovered that TEKO wanted to be a service dog. She needed help with balancing and directions. She was recovering from progressive heart failure, said to be caused by he having had Lyme disease. TEKO, by nature, appeared to be caring for her difficulties.

This book is a work of love. Love for a cat named Aphrodite. We adopted her the minute we saw her come out of the hiding place where her feral mom and dad were temporarily staying…under our neighbor’s back porch. It was love at first sight. We adopted the whole family and they stayed with us until her mom and dad (Hera and Zeus) crossed over that Rainbow Bridge. Sixteen years later, Aphrodite is still with us, and although she has some health issues, is still going strong. I hope you enjoy her story (as told to you by Aphrodite).
