Meet Fredrick. He has had a long journey from the west coast town of Astoria Oregon to the mid west area of Anamoose North Dakota.
You would think the little fellow would be worn out from the long road trip, but no he is full of energy. Just today he has chopped down two tree's and made a huge pile of fire wood, taken a walk in the woods, a ride on his snowmobile and now he is checking out the cookbooks to see what kind of tasty concoctions he can come up with.
Fredrick does seem to like it in North Dakota.

James Herriot was a Yorkshire veterinarian and wrote great stories about his practice.
In this book Jock the sheepdog, rescued from neglect by a doting-and dotty-mistress; here is Brandy, a mutt who's only happy (and healthy) when he's digging in a dustbin; here are Border collies, dachhunds, 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.
