The very special magic of James Herriot's storytelling shines throughout this classic collection of stories about the animal he loves the most. Here are some of the dogs who have won a special place in the country vet's heart -- dogs like Tricki Woo, the little Pekinese suffering from 'flop-butt'; Clancy the dog who nobody would go near; and Gyp, the sheepdog who only barked once in his life. They're joined by lovable dogs of all shapes and sizes in a wonderful collection of stories, which will be enjoyed by all dog-lovers and James Herriot fans alike. '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
