James Herriot's Dog Stories161
As a little boy, climbing through the lochs and mountains of Argyll with his Irish Setter Don, all James Herriot wanted to be was a 'dog doctor' so he could care for man's best friend. In this classic collection of stories, we are introduced to some of the dogs who won a special place in the country vet's heart - from Tricki Woo, the little Pekinese suffering from 'flop-butt' to Clancy the dog who nobody would go near and Gyp, the sheepdog who only ever barked once in his life. They're joined by lovable dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes, celebrating the limitless affection and loyalty of our closest companions. Filled with magical storytelling and from the treasured author of All Creatures Great and Small, James Herriot's Dog Stories is told with his usual wit and human compassion - the perfect gift for dog-lovers everywhere.

The tales can be read and re-read . . . what shines through all the stories is that dogs give us enormous pleasure. * Sunday Times * James Herriot provokes a chuckle, or a lump in your throat, in every chapter. * Daily Mirror *
James Herriot grew up in Glasgow and qualified as a veterinary surgeon at Glasgow Veterinary College. Shortly afterwards he took up a position as an assistant in a North Yorkshire practice where he remained, with the exception of his wartime service in the RAF, until his death in 1995. He wrote many books about Yorkshire country life, including some for children, but he is best known for his memoirs, beginning with If Only They Could Talk. The books were televised in the enormously popular series All Creatures Great and Small.
