I bought Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul today—we have both of their other pet books—and I opened it up just now to the first story, which opens with "Albert Payson Terhune, the famed dog writer of the 1920s and 1930s who authored the Lassie books..."

No, no, NO. Dear God, how can you publish a book and not check your facts? Albert Payson Terhune wrote the Lad books (and at least a dozen other books about dogs, mostly about collies). Eric Knight wrote Lassie Come-Home, which is the only Lassie book unless you count the Whitman novels and Little Golden Books and a few paperbacks based on the television series and movies.
