We’ve all had those days—especially lately!—when nothing goes our way and it seems like we keep bumping into new challenges at every turn. That’s why we scoured hundreds of the most adorable real-life animal stories that have appeared in Woman’s World over the years and compiled them into this special collection of happy “tails.” From heroic household pets to healing farm animals to hope-filled rescues, each short story is guaranteed to erase your worry and lift your spirits.

the power of unconditional love

For the past 13 years, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to edit hundreds of inspirational real-life stories—and it may come as no surprise that many of my favorite tales have featured heroes with, well…tails!

The morning had started out so normal…so peaceful…as 44-year-old Paula Godwin took her 6-month-old puppy, Todd, and his 3-year-old furry brother, Copper, on their daily hike in the hills near her home in Anthem, Arizona. But as they walked along the trail, enjoying the warm sunshine, Todd suddenly bolted toward Paula’s foot. In a split second she saw why, and her breath caught: A huge rattlesnake was inches away from her, coiled to strike “No!” Paula screamed to Todd, as he jumped forward, horror icing through her veins. Right as the snake lunged, Todd put himself between it and Paula, and the rattler sank its venomous fangs deep into the puppy’s face. Todd yelped in pain as Paula snatched him up, called for Copper to follow and began running back to her car. “Hang on,…
