Welcome to Issue 11 of The Dog Tales, a biweekly email from Dogs I Meet full of inspirational dog tales from around the world.
Every two weeks I will be sharing my favorite dog stories and tales from some of the dogs I meet and photograph each day. I hope you enjoy them.
We also love to share inspiring dog stories with our readers. And because we believe that every dog has a tale we'd love to share your dog’s story.
If your dog has a tale to share then just fill in this form with your details and a minimum of 4 good quality photos. We'll post the stories we use on our website, facebook and instagram using the hashtag #dogshowandtale so be sure to follow it!

We have all thought 'if only I could understand what my dog is thinking'. But perhaps you can.
