Summary This paper is about dogs and stories. As a communication studies academic and owner of a certified therapy dog, I noticed that something interesting happens when people interact with my dog. In some (most) cases, the simple act of patting and talking with the dog triggers the desire to share stories from their own ‘pet history’ – starting with simple catalogue of the animals they have owned, next, moving on to accounts of the life events that have occurred with and because of these pets and finally, sharing how they felt as a result.
