From Chicken Soup for the Soul: What I Learned from the Dog

Thank You!

We owe huge thanks to all of our contributors. We know that you poured your hearts and souls into the thousands of stories and poems that you shared with us, and ultimately with each other. We appreciate your willingness to open up your lives to other Chicken Soup for the Soul readers. And we loved hearing about your fabulous dogs!

We could only publish a small percentage of the stories that were submitted, but we read every single one and even the ones that do not appear in the book had an influence on us and on the final manuscript.

Two long-time Chicken Soup for the Soul editors—Barbara LoMonaco and D’ette Corona—read all the stories and poems that were submitted for this book and created the manuscript. This book could not have been made without their expertise, their input, and their innate knowledge of what makes a great Chicken Soup for the Soul story. Barbara is our webmaster and also a fabulous editor, and D’ette is our assistant publisher and chief organizer and also a great editor. We also want to thank Chicken Soup for the Soul editor Kristiana Glavin for her assistance with the final manuscript and proofreading, as well as Leigh Holmes, who keeps our office running smoothly.

We owe a very special thanks to our creative director and book producer, Brian Taylor at Pneuma Books, for his brilliant vision for our covers and interiors. Finally, none of this would be possible without the business and creative leadership of our CEO, Bill Rouhana, and our president, Bob Jacobs.
