James Herriot's Favorite Dog Stories


Description for JAMES HERRIOT'S FAVORITE DOG STORIES by James Herriot:

"When I decided I wanted to be a vet," James Herriot wrote in his very last completed piece of writing---"I knew that I wanted to be a dog doctor, so I could spend all my time with dogs." As everyone knows, James Herriot became much more than a dog doctor. But no animal was dearer to his heart, and no animal provided him with more heartwarming and wonderful tales, than man's best friend.

Now, for the first time, ten of James Herriot's most beloved stories about dogs are collected in one gorgeous illustrated edition: JAMES HERRIOT'S FAVORITE DOG STORIES. Here is Jack the sheepdog, rescued from neglect by a doting---and dotty---mistress; her is Brandy, a mutt who's only happy (and healthy) when he's digging in a dustbin; here are Border collies, Dachshunds, even Tricki Woo, the memorable Pekingese. And, as always, in these pages the celebrated Yorkshire vet brings to life these animals' human counterparts, painting them with warmth and humor in equal measure. Brought to life by the vibrant watercolors of Lesley Holmes, this collection of tales is a welcome gift from one of the greatest storytellers of our time---James Herriot.
