Dogs are such incredible creatures. Yes, we have all come upon a first timer one who just doesn't get it and acts like a 2 year old their entire doggie life, but most of us dog lovers know how special dogs are. They really are amazing animals. You can see the intelligence in their eyes and I am always amazed at how smart they are. They really are like people.
I have never understood people who say they don't love dogs/animals? How can you not? What is there not to love? I think if you can actually say, you don't like dogs, it says a lot about your character.
What I Learned from the Dog is a compilation of stores from people like you and me who absolutely love their dogs.
Some of the stories are funny and made me chuckle, smile, and remember my little dog Zoe who was my 4.5 pound baby bf (before kids).
Some of the stories just made me sob! Especially the stories by Ann Sheridan called My Chemo Hero. Ann adopted an 8 week old puppy who was rescued after being sealed in a box in a snow bank (who does things like this?). After hearing that the puppy would be put down if not adopted Ann took that puppy home and fell in love. 10 years later that puppy Bimbo was diagnosed with lymphoma. Ann and her husband opted to give Bimbo chemo. Bimbo was a perfect patient, fearless and optimistic. A few months later Ann was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Helping Bimbo through chemo Ann was ready and aware of what would happen to her. She was educated and optimistic. She and Bimbo journeyed through chemo together. Bimbo took her last breath in her 3rd remission.
Ann wanted to share her experience and wrote a book for children called Dogs Get Cancer Too where Bimbo teaches the youngest of cancer patients to discuss their fears. She also founded an organization called Bimbo's Buddies. What a loving tribute to an amazing dog who helped it's owner as much as they rescued her.
This is just one of the 101 stories you will find in this book that will affect you in ways you can't imagine.
In fact, I think it's even more important for non-animal people than it is for dog owners. If you want a good example, Natalia Lusinski's story "Peanut" is from the perspective of a non-animal person. It's not about praising dog lovers and patting themselves on the back like they're a little club. It's about not knowing how to deal with dogs at all, and then coming to understand what it's really like to take care of one and how that makes us more thoughtful and happier people.
I like this book because it's for everyone. "Peanut" is a great example of what dog ownership can do for non-dog owners. And I look forward to reading Natalia's stories in other Chicken Soup books, because I think she sets a good example, dog stories aside.
So buy this book and set yourself and your friends on a path towards adopting a needy pet, becoming a happier person, and reducing animal cruelty in the world.
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'.
