There were some really cute stories in this book. A couple were boring, but the rest were very entertaining. I enjoyed reading this book, which didn't take me too long to finish. My friend Lisa from Kmart bought me this book for Christmas, because she knew how much I loved reading and my dogs. I understand the appeal of reading Chicken Soup for the Soul books now that I know that they all aren't religious books. For some reason, I thought they were religious. Where they religious books at one po ...more

Light book. Read it in 2 days. I cannot believe how many writers are out there. Must be the need.

It was fine until I got to the story about the dog who died under the Christmas tree and NO ONE CARED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really? Your 9 year old beloved dog dies, and you find him dead under the tree on Christmas morning. Then you decide to distract the kids, and haul him out to the bed of the pick up truck where he'll freeze rock solid and deal with it TOMORROW?? All the time lying to the kids and acting like nothing happened? I would be a bucket of tears. There is no way I could hide that. Crappy do

I received this book as a gift from my Grandma Sassy last Christmas, the grandma Sassy for whom my dog is named. While possibly unbelievable to those who have never owned a dog, these short stories are completely relate-able for anyone who has! There were times I sniffled, times I laughed, and times I nodded my head thinking, “Yup, been there!”
It’s been a long time since I read a Chicken Soup for the Soul book. I was surprised by the content of a few stories that used some vulgar language and we

The collection of dog doings is much better than others I have read.

Like people, dogs have that way of presenting their personalities and it is for humans to adapted to.

A well trained dog will make no atempt to share your lunch. He will just make you feel so guilty that you cannot enjoy it.

If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.

The averge dog is a nicer person than the average person.

and so on ....

I was not able to find one essay , of the 101 in the collection, that I did not benefit fr

I didn't finish this one and it took me forever to get to where I actually stopped. (Page 255) It doesn't hold my attention and I found it difficult to read this when I kept thinking about all the other amazing books I could be reading instead of sleeping through this one. 2 stars and not 1 because the dogs were cute.

I Laughed and was Amazed

Some of these stories were touching, others were hilarious, but they were all about humans love for canines and their dog's love for them. My favorite is the funny names people came up with for their dogs. In my opinion, the winners were Nuisance, Yainex, and Dammit Dog.

If you like or love the chicken soup books than you will like this one too. I can not imagine a dog lover not liking this book. It has it all the tears, laughs and astonishment, you feel when stories of animals are told.

I love all of the Chicken Soup books that relate to dogs, and this was no exception. It is advertised as a collection of humorous accounts of our canine companions, and while I wouldn't say there were a whole lot that made me laugh out loud, they were an enjoyable read while exercising at the gym.

Some cute stories for some light reading. Some of my dog stories are funnier.

Rating 3.5. Some of the stories were great fun, others were a little blah.

First ever Chicken Soup for the Soul book I've read; some of the stories were funny, some sad, and some just incredible. I don't see myself reading this again but overall it wasn't too bad of a read.
A schmaltzy book full of "funny" stories involving dogs. Some were cute, but I'm pretty sure my dog has done funnier/cuter things in his sleep. Meh.
