From Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Dog Did What?

Introduction

We are so pleased to bring you our latest collection of stories about dogs, and this time with a special guest, Miranda Lambert, writing the foreword. In addition to being one of the most popular and well-liked entertainers on the planet, Miranda has been an incredibly dedicated and effective spokesperson for animal welfare and for the benefits of working with and adopting rescue animals. She is a big supporter of the American Humane Association and we are happy that the royalties from this book will go to the Association to further its good work.

Chicken Soup for the Soul makes every effort to support the work of shelters and to promote adoption of dogs and cats. We use rescue dogs and cats as models on the packaging for our pet food, and we have been contributing to shelters for years. With this book, through the generous participation of Miranda Lambert, we undertake our biggest effort yet to financially support the welfare of animals.

You will read many stories in this book about the love and devotion between dogs and their human families. You’ll read about dogs that save lives, dogs that demonstrate surprising intuition about the needs of their humans, and dogs that teach people important life lessons. You’ll read about the wonderful volunteers and professionals who have found new meaning and joy in their lives by adopting, fostering, and working with pet rescue organizations and shelters. You’ll also read dozens of really funny stories about the mischievous things that our little rascals do. It seems like every dog owner can’t help but smile, even when relating his or her dog’s most dastardly deeds!

Most importantly, the stories in the book make the point over and over again—shelter dogs and abandoned dogs are fabulous! They add so much value to your lives, and you have saved them from a grim future. So enjoy these stories from your fellow dog people, make some new stories of your own with your dogs, and remember to adopt those abandoned dogs . . . and don’t forget the older ones. Senior dogs really need you too.
