Amazing Animals

As an animal lover, I think that a well-written animal character that plays a strong part in the story can bring warmth and charm to it, as well as deepen the characterizations of it's human counterparts. This list is for books that had one or more animal characters (this may include mythical animals such as dragons) that stood out to me in some way. Also included are main characters whose careers are dedicated to animals (e.g. veterinarians, trainers, etc.)
