This book, by Toronto lawyer and estate law practitioner, Barry Seltzer, and Texas Tech University School of Law professor Gerry W. Beyer takes you through a step-by-step process for making sure you can provide long-term care for your pet. Fat Cats and Lucky Dogs will interest pet owners in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and other countries whose legal system is based on English common law.
