Inspiring Stories

I enjoyed these individual stories about these dogs. I had heard of some of them before, like Ricochet, Faith and Chaser, who all have their own full length books as well. I liked how at the end of each story, the author includes a short description of the breed. This was a short fun read and is ideal for the audio format since it can be stopped and started without a loss of continuity of the story line.

Poor narration. Random facts

Narrator is poor. Stories could be so much better if written well but the stories will have random sentences thrown in.

Could be better

The narration is dry, textbook reading, unemotional and detracts from the subject matter. the series would be improved with better editing. specifically by moving the suffix information on the dogs breed to the beginning of the story for context. with the enormous amount of dog breeds, this book has several pitbull stories. more varieties would have been appreciated.

Some beautiful dog stories

This is a lovely collection of short stories of extraordinary every day dogs changing the lives of those around them. Im not a dog owner, but I am an animal lover and quite a few of these stories made me cry, mostly with happiness and joy.
