Herriot's collection of fifty short stories perfectly captures the unique personality of every dog and highlights the quirkiness of many pet owners. Herriot begins with a fairly long and amusing introduction about how he became a vet before going on to share the most memorable anecdotes from his Yorkshire practice in the 1930s. He tells of "Judy the nurse dog," who cares for all the barnyard animals; of abused or abandoned dogs who find new and loving homes; and of dogs who contract distemper or leptospirosis, fatal diseases against which vets now routinely inoculate. It's a volume containing humour, heartbreak and fascinating veterinary history.
