Someone asked me, how did I come about doing this kind of work? I told them the story about Soupbone and about how I fell in love with him and felt the need to protect him for the rest of his life. They said to me, don’t you need to teach this, so the next generation knows how to do this? So I thought back to my Lady Oliver Cheesecake recipe, and how we had people lining up at Zabars for hours just to get a taste. I never gave my secret recipe to anyone. But I realized that my other recipe, the one I used to cook up the Pet Protection Agreement® pet trust was one that I needed to share with the world. So now I want to pass down my legal expertise to the next generation. In fact, in my next book, You Love Your Pet? Keep the Good Life Goring With A Pet Trust, there will be a full tear-out form of the Pet Protection Agreement pet trust." - Rachel Hirschfeld
