More Herriot stories about the dogs he encountered as a veterinarian
This is a collection of stories about the memorable dogs Herriot treated during his career. Some are funny and some are heartbreaking, but Herriot is a terrific writer and you can't help but get emotionally involed.
This is a heart-warming collection of stories by the author of "All Creatures Great and Small". It's about people and pets:
About the little dog who pines away after the loss of his best friend, whose life is saved by a puppy;
About a great Boxer whose noxious gas makes him untenable in the home of his highbrow owner- who loves him too much to give him away... and about the surprise solution to the dilemma;
The story of the miraculous recovery a blind boy's guide dog who picks up a poisoned 'treat';
... and many others-
about lap dogs, working dogs, mongrels- and the people who live with them and love them.
This is a worthwhile book if you like to read aloud to your kids..
(and, yes, I have read some of them to my husband!)
Its pretty simple, if you love dogs: then this is a classic must read. Each short story in this book is sweet, heartwarming, and at times heartbreaking. It will remind you of your love for dogs...and why they are man's best friend.
