Publisher's Summary

This enchanting program collects some of the Yorkshire vet's favorite stories about one of his favorite animals, each tale as memorable and heartwarming as the last. Christopher Timothy, the star of television's All Creatures Great and Small, and acknowledged "voice" of Dr. Herriot, lovingly narrates this new collection of the good doctor's canine encounters. Here are tales of golden retrievers and sheepdogs, beagles and dachshunds, purebreds and crossbreeds, and just plain mutts - and, of course, Tricki Woo, Mrs. Pumphrey's memorable Pekinese. Each tale is suffused with the humor, wisdom and humanity of one of the greatest storytellers of our time: James Herriot.

all James Herriot's stories are TERRIFIC

His stories may go back over 70 years, but I cherish each and every story. I laugh, I cry and I learn. Everyone should enjoy such stories.

I have a stack of very long books to read. They seem a bit overwhelming for me to start at this time of year. Therefore, I turned to some of my favorite short stories that have always helped me unwind and they leave me feeling good.

This book is a collection of stories about dogs. The dogs range from Border Collie farm dogs to spoiled Pekingese. This is a memoir so we have Herriot’s personal viewpoint of this large animal veterinary practice that has small animal care. Herriot states he enjoys the small animals the most but in his day the large farm animals were what his training emphasized and was his main income. I always enjoy Herriot’s delightful stories.

The book is three hours. Christopher Timothy does a good job narrating the book. Timothy is a Welsh actor and played Herriot in the BBC production of “All Things Great and Small”. He is an award-winning audiobook narrator
