I want to thank you for not hiding your light under a bushel. It is because of you I wandered into the wonderful world of animals on a deeper level. I talk to the animals who are around me all the time because of your book. As I dedicate my time to speaking on behalf of the animals, to the people of my church, understanding their world better because of what you have shared can only increase my ability to speak for them. Thank you so much, again, for choosing to move your life in this direction. It has blessed all of us who know you, or of you. L.S.
WHEN ANIMALS SPEAK
Deep, life-changing revelations communicated directly from the animals.
Discover who animals and other forms of life really are;
how they understand themselves and others;
how they feel about humans and life in general;
how they choose their paths in life and death;
the depth of their spiritual understanding and purposes;
and how they can teach, heal, and guide us back to wholeness as physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual beings.
Regain the language natively understood by all species.
Laugh as you experience other species' refreshing and sometimes startling points of view about living, humans, and you.

I have been reading your book, When Animals Speak. Each time I sit down with it (I'm savoring it, so it's taking me awhile) my vibration level gets so high…. I feel at peace with the world and all it's beings. C.M.
Thank you for letting me rediscover the ability to talk to animals. I have always known there was something I was supposed to do, to know, and now I know. It was like opening a window and letting the air into my heart. S.N.
ANIMALS IN SPIRIT
How do we say goodbye when it’s time for our beloved animal companions to pass?
Where do they go when they leave Earth, and how do we ease the loss and help them transition to the other side?
In her newest book, Penelope shows how to explore and transform the often traumatic experience of losing a cherished animal into a positive, uplifting experience for animals as well as their human friends. With true stories and insights from people and their animals about dying, death, and beyond, readers will learn how to release feelings of loss and separation and instead stay connected to their animal friends in spirit.
Informative and comforting, Animals in Spirit shares the process of dying from animals’ viewpoints. You will learn:
- how animals may choose their paths in life and death
- how to work through guilt and grieving
- when to consider euthanasia
- what happens after animals leave this world
- the messages departed animals have for us
- and reincarnation—meeting animal friends from life to life.
Based on the audiotape, Animal Death: A Spiritual Journey, published by Pegasus Publications, 1991.

Your book helped me understand the animals perspective on life and its transitions more clearly and helped me to process a lot of my pain. When I read your account of losing Pasha in another of your books, it was like you were speaking directly to me and conveying everything I felt. I could identify with every word. Words will never express my gratitude to you for taking the time to write down all of your learnings. K.C.
Despite dealing with death, this is not a sad and depressing book at all, in fact it is quite uplifting and makes your heart feel warm. P.H.
I had been tending to my elderly, sick Irish Setter, Cinnamon, for several months. Having experienced the loss of furry family members in the past, I dreaded the inevitable time when Cinni would have to leave this earth--either naturally or with a vet's assistance. It was a constant struggle for me, which possibly translated into an unnecessary struggle for Cinnamon.
I purchased your book, Animals in Spirit and it has opened up a world of understanding, faith, and joy. Though my Christian background doesn’t promote reincarnation or the spirit of animals, my personal belief, since childhood, has embraced the unique energy within each living thing and the possibility of reincarnation. Your book helped validate a few events with pets that have left Earth and pets that are still physically here.
I made the fateful appointment today to assist our Cinni's transition from the physical plane. Though many tears have been shed in the last few months, your book reminded me that I should invest my time and energy in enveloping Cinni with love. Much love and words of comfort and gratitude were shared with her. I reminded her of how much we all love her, what a great job she had done, that she would always be with us, and that she could come visit any time. There were no 'good-byes' only 'see you soon!' We kept Cinni constant company and made sure she was warmly enveloped in her blankets and showered with kisses and gentle caresses. The vet was gracious to allow us to spend as much time with her as possible. Her departure was peaceful, quick, and (I never thought I'd be saying this!) uplifting.
Though I expected to cry (and continue crying for days), I feel an overwhelming sense of peace and joy...a joy that can only be described as pure, honest, and unselfish. Of course I miss her, yet I feel that as if I have been able to move directly to the "acceptance" phase of the grieving process in a rather healthy way. The understanding I gained as a result of reading your book helps me rejoice in Cinni's departure instead of wallowing in tears, which would make her transition much more challenging for her. I am grateful knowing that she will always be a part of my life, that we will soon meet again, and that she may even one day be back to teach me new things. Penelope, I am grateful that you have shared your insight and stories through your book. I cannot adequately describe how helpful your book has been during this challenging time. My hope is that others will also use your book to help find peace and comfort during their time of loss and grief. A.R.
