Animals bring out the goodness, humanity and optimism in people and speak directly to our souls. This joyous, inspiring and entertaining Chicken Soup collection relates the unique bonds between animals and the people whose lives they've changed. Such as the dolphins who helped a paralyzed woman heal when doctors offered little hope; the dog who brought life into a failing marriage; the kitten who helped a mother mourn; and the flying squirrel who taught a man the power of laughter.

Packed with celebrity pet-lore, Chicken Soup for the Soul relates the unconditional love, loyalty, courage and companionship that only animals possess. Just like our furry, feathered and four-legged friends, this enchanting book will bring a smile to any pet lover's face ... and it's housebroken!

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "The "Chicken Soup" series is truly a favorite of min. It consistently delivers stories that are meaningful and relatable. This particular collection of stories aims at those of us who have included as part of our families, a furry, feathered or even scaly companion. There are endless funny tales, but as always, real tear jerkers too! Our pets can be friends, caregivers, healers and heroes. These stories celebrate our experiences with pets and will have you totally engaged. These special relationships have infinite rewards. Keep the Kleenex handy.

I LOVED this book! All the short stories were amazing, some made me laugh and others made me cry (almost).

A collection of stories written by vets, famous people and regular people too. A great book for any pet lover especially an aspiring vet.

'"Do you have pets?'"
'"yes-a cat and a dog."'
'"Do they have pedigrees?"'
'"No, we took them out."'
