The Animals in My Life: Stories of a Country Vet

Front Cover
Howell Book House, Jan 1, 1996 - Biography & Autobiography - 211 pages
Heartwarming, hilarious, heroic -- and all true!

The Animals in My Life is a wonderful book by a veterinarian with a rare gift for conveying with wit and sensitivity how he feels toward the animals he has encountered in his life and in his practice. This collection of twenty-five stories will appeal to readers of all ages. Some stories are deeply moving, such as that of Flipper, a misshapen mongrel who becomes a mascot at a home for disabled children. Other stories will evoke tears of laughter, especially when Grant Kendall meets up with his least-favorite creature, the cow.
