Read full description of the books Chicken Soup for the Soul: What I Learned from the Dog - 34 Stories about Overcoming Adversity, Healing, and How to Say Goodbye:A touching, inspiring, helpful and engrossing book with 101 true life stories of invaluable lessons, the writers have learned from the dogs in their lives-who are not called man's best friend for nothing-anyone who has lived with dogs and opened up to their lives and loyalty will attest to this..
As a dog lover, who has from birth always had and lived with dogs, this was a book I could strongly relate to and enjoyed every minute of it.
Some of the stories made my heart sing and some I could relate to what I've observed in my own dogs such as the older dog running from bowl to bowl to make sure the newcomer could not eat from either one. Some are humorous-dogs often have senses of humour too Dealing also with every breed there is from Chihuahuas to Labrador and boxers and mastiffs.
Breathtaking stories of dogs saving their owners and their children from falling trees and crazed intruders, knowing beforehand from instruction what had to be done, Stories of how dogs took their owner through bereavement and surviving cancer and chemotherapy. some of these dogs prove how dogs have a strong spiritual dimension. Often these dogs are brought to us at the right time as if by divine intervention
A lot of these stories brought tears to my eyes. Tenderly written accounts of people losing their dogs to old age and illness (a sad fact of life that the lives of our dogs are only a fraction of ours) , tragic accidents. and in one case killed after rescuing it's owner from a bear.
Many of these true life tales are written by professional writers and journalists, but they are all moving and wonderful to read, and most of all indeed insuring 'chicken soup for the soul'.
