Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Dog's Life ~Book Review & Giveaway~

Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Dog's Life
101 Stories about All the Ages and Stages of Our Canine Companions

By: Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hanson and Jennifer Quasha
Foreword by: Wendy Diamond


It's a dog's life. This collection of 101 new stories focuses on all the memorable ages and stages of our lovable canines' lives. Starting in puppyhood and covering a range of middle and senior years to the twilight and end when our dear friends leave us, this book captures the entire experience of living through the natural life cycle with our dogs. All dog lovers will laugh, cry, and recognize themselves and their furry friends in these heartwarming and inspiring stories of puppy antics, teenage rebellion, adapting to an aging dog and, finally, having to say goodbye.


I love these Chicken Soup for the Soul Books!! They are so great to read, with all the inspirational stories. I love that you can sit down and read a few pages or the entire book depending on how much time you have. This book is great for dog lovers as it is a reminder of the joy and companionship our dogs provide. This shares the love, laughs and one of a kind stories about our furry friends. In this book you will find adventures with your exuberant puppies, living through your dog's amusing and challenging "teenage" years, enjoying the bittersweet senior years and recovering from loss. As I read this book, I laughed and cried. Late last summer we lost our beloved Magnum who wasn't just our dog but our friend and a member of our family. We had him for 9 1/2 years and as I read some of these stories they reminded me alot of him and the joy he brought to our lives. We now have a puppy and some of these stories are lessons for me. I think Dog lovers will really enjoy reading this book.

This book may be purchased through Amazon.
