Helpful Score: 2

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!)
