When Dogs Really Want to Have a Purpose

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today we’re talking about dogs and the way that so many of them love to have a purpose. When they can’t do their jobs they get antsy, and their humans need to find them something new to do, a new way to contribute. We have lots of stories about working dog in our latest dog book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Magic of Dogs, and I’m going to share two of them today—about dogs who were so committed to doing good that their humans had to make sure they could keep going to work every day.
