Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Dog's Life...Review & Giveaway!

To go along with the release of their new book, Chicken Soup for the Soul:  My Cat's Life, there is a new release for dog lovers as well....Chicken Soup for the Soul:  My Dog's Life.  As I just mentioned, I am a BIG animal lover and growing up we always had a family dog.  My husband and I got a dog when we first moved in together and she passed away last spring.  When the kids get a little older we are planning on getting another dog and we have already talking about it excitedly.  Dogs were such a huge part of my childhood and I can't wait for A,W and R to again know the joy a furry family member can bring.  So, obviously I am a dog lover which is why I was so excited to read Chicken Soup for the Soul:  My Dog's Life.  Here is a synopsis from this new release...


101 Stories about All the Ages and Stages of Our Canine Companions
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.

This book was such a joy for me to read.  I loved reliving the puppy years through these stories and it made me so excited to introduce a new puppy to our home.  I giggled over the silly antics and commiserated with the process that is training a new pup!  I really, really related to the sections about living with an older dog and, of course to the saying goodbye section.  I was so emotional reading these parts as we had so recently gone through all this with our girl, Zara.  Oh, boy, bring on the tissues!  As always, the Chicken Soup books are wonderful reads that will manage to get right into your heart.  I highly recommend this one to all the dog lovers on your list!  Pick up your copy today on Amazon...

My favorite breed is the Scottie, I always wanted one as a little girl and I have since shared my life with two of these wonderfully loyal and stubborn little dogs!

We have a houseful of dogs. My personal dog is a min pin. He is a 9 1/2 y/o named Puppy. My previous dog was also a min pin so I guess I am partial to them. They were both rescue dogs.
