I've always loved owls. Ever since I was young, I've found them to be fascinating birds. I'll admit to being a little jealous of Harry Potter and his relationship with Hedwig. How I thought I would love to have an owl.
Today, while waiting for a prescription at Wal-Mart, I saw a book entitled Wesley the Owl. The cover also had the description "The Remarkable Love Story of an Owl and His Girl". Intrigued, I put it in my cart and started reading.
It is such a sweet book. I know now that I wouldn't really like having a pet owl as they are so much more work that I would have ever dreamed. However, I do think the rewards are huge for sharing your life with such an intelligent animal. It's an easy read, and I recommend it. Take a look at the link, then go read this book.
And even though I don't think I could raise an owl, I find them even more fascinating now.
