The Perfect Dog

Rated 5.00/5 based on 4 reviews
This is one of my most stolen stories. It was first published in Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul. Since then, it's been resold to a missionary, to an Israel school, and to a school in China, teaching English. I think you will enjoy this heart-felt short-short story, based on a true happening.

About Jan Peck

Welcome! I'm an award-winning children's book author. I've also written for magazines, including Boys' Life, Highlights for Children, Humpty Dumpty and Turtle magazines. I'm an organic gardener and a past cook for Auntie Em's, a vegetarian health-food restaurant in Cowtown. My latest traditionally published picture book is The Green Mother Goose, co-written with David David. Have fun reading some of my fun and touching stories here!

I loved the picture - so ugly she's cute. I'm glad she found her loving family, and taught us all a Life lesson in the process.

Sweet, simple story with a wonderful message for kids of all ages. Even if you're not a dog love (but especially if you are) your heart will go out to "The Perfect Dog."

It just goes to show: There's somebody for everyone, out there in the big wide world. This is a delightful quick read that gave me a lovely warm-and-fuzzy feeling -- despite the lack of hair! LOL

The Perfect Dog is one of the best short stories I've ever read. Jan Peck has a gift for telling a story in wonderfully edited prose. Every word that needs to be there is there, and not one word more. Use that style to tell a heartwarming story and you have the recipe for a classic. It's no wonder this story is known WORLDWIDE.
