Overview

Some of the simplest, yet most powerful lessons we learn are often taught by the least likely of our family members - our dogs! We can learn something from them every day if we just open our minds and our hearts to the valuable lessons they are trying to teach.


What do we learn from our dogs? Everything. Our dogs make us better people. If we rescued them, they rescue us back. If we’re sad, they comfort us. If we need to have more fun, they show us how. They are our protectors, our role models, and our best friends. You’ll laugh a lot, tear up at times, and nod your head in recognition as you read these tales about the wonderful experience of sharing life with a dog. Lessons learned from our dogs come in many forms, from the hilarious to the heroic. You’ll enjoy a wide variety of entertaining stories in these 11 chapters:

• Be Ready for Adventure
• Be a Friend
• Step Outside Your Comfort Zone • Be Open-Minded
• Find Your Purpose
• Find Your Inner Strength
• Live in the Moment
• Miracles Happen
• Get On with Life
• Saying Goodbye with Gratitude
• Sometimes You Just Have to Laugh

And your purchase of this book will help support the important work of American Humane, creating a better life for dogs everywhere.
