My turn the page Tuesday book this month is James Herriot's "Favorite Dog Stories" I have been reading it to residents at work. They love dogs & children so I thought this would be a book we all would enjoy.
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.
