The 29-year-old writer said Faris was actually a great source of inspiration behind her latest venture — a podcast called “The Dog That Changed Me” was launched in combination with Pedigree.

“[Anna] has an incredibly successful podcast. I have great admiration for all the work that they have done, and she is certainly an expert on it,” Schwarzenegger recently told Us Weekly, referring to Faris’ “Unconditionally” podcast. “Learning from her is a great gift. I have such great people in my life that I am able to learn from all different areas of life and she is definitely someone I look up to in the podcast world.”

She told Fox News the idea for the series was a joint effort between themselves and the pet company. The podcast, according to Schwarzenegger, serves as “a platform for people to talk about their dogs and the decision they made to adopt animals — and what made a difference in their lives.”

The nine-episode, limited series features a number of star-studded performances, also. Actress and singer Mandy Moore, “Friday Night Lights” alum Minka Kelly, singer LeAnn Rimes and actress Haylie Duff, among others, are a few of the notable guests. Schwarzenegger also interviewed Dan Lasko, a U. S. Marine Corps veteran who shares “how are the dogs have really helped him to transition into a normal life back home,” she said.

“Of all the guests on the podcast are people who are incredibly passionate about animal rescue and the spread of knowledge about the dog adoption [they] all had experiences with animals that changed their lives and taught them much about themselves and life in general,” she continued.

Schwarzenegger, who has her dog Maverick in 2013, according to the podcast also serves as the perfect way for her to “continue to spread awareness about dog rescue and animal adoption.”

“He is a tremendous blessing in my life; [he] opened my eyes to the world of animal rescue that I am not fully aware of it,” she said of the pup, who turns six on Christmas. “It was never my intention to save Maverick in that time, but he came into my life at the perfect time and ended up with a great decision.”

“[He taught me a lot about myself, responsibility and unconditional love,” she added.

As for a favorite moment in the making of the series, Schwarzenegger was not able to choose just one.

“I think I have a special moment of every person to the interview. The first party that we have released has incredibly moving and incredibly heartwarming stories — in every interview that we laughed a lot, we cried,” she said of the “amazing” experience. “I hope that everyone who to it is moved by the ability of these animals to touch our lives.”
