Sometimes It’s Amazing How Smart Dogs Are

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with a little Chicken Soup for the Soul inspiration for you from our latest bestseller, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Magic of Dogs.

And then sometimes they’re so surprisingly smart, which is what I’m going to talk about today in two stories from our new collection of dog stories. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
