This beautifully illustrated book contains ten of the favourite dog stories written by James Herriot, the world's most famous vet.

Leaping into life from the page of this enchanting book is the story of Jock who has a battle on his paws to keep his position of top dog, and Brandy who cannot resist inspecting he dustbins.  There are tender stories of neglected dogs given new homes, new hope, like Roy the golden retriever, and stories about the important part a pet plays in the life of an elderly person.  The book includes three stories about Tricki Woo, the pekinese who has been one of the great Herriot favourites—in the books, on television and in the films.

In a new and delightful introduction, James Herriot tells about his own dogs—from Sam the beagle through to bodie the border terrier.  Lesley Holmes has caught not only the very special character of each of the dogs in her illustrations but also the beautiful Yorkshire landscape where the stories are set.
