    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 goodThis 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 storiesI read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible 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

    No one does animal stories like James Herriot He writes from than 50 years’ experience as a veterinarian in rural North Yorkshire but with such lovely prose that you almost— almost—wonder if he missed his true calling This was the real Yorkshire with the clean limestone wall riding the hill’s edge and the path cutting brilliant green through the crowding heather And walking face on to the scented breeze I felt the old tingle of wonder at being alone on the wide moorland where nothing stirred and the spreading miles of purple blossom and green turf reached away until it met the hazy blue of the sky Rather than limit himself to one calling or the other Herriot took the two—animal doctor scribe—and merged them to produce something uite wonderful the charming veterinary tales he wrote in his later years If you’ve read his memoirs the stories in this book will be familiar—but I was pleasantly surprised to find this is much than just a regrouping of old stories for a couple of reasons First the introduction that precedes these stories stories that Herriot himself handpicked for the collection is the last piece of writing he ever completed Slipping into those words felt like sitting down with a dear friend Herriot recalls that his love of dogs began in childhood when he discovered the joys of watching his Irish setter Don scent rabbits on the hillside and sleep in front of the fire “whiffling little noises” as dreaming dogs do Second the hardcover edition is filled with beautiful watercolor illustrations of dogs and of Darrowby the fictional name of the town where Herriot practiced I don’t read a lot of illustrated books these days and lingering over these pictures I thought Why not? I should take a number from Alice and demand books with pictures The watercolors capture a cross bred greyhound whose master pushes him around the countryside on a pram a sheepdog who only barked once and a pampered Pekingese named Tricki Woo whose owner describes his ailments in mysterious terms like “going flopbott”A favorite passage As the years passed I often pondered on the beneficent providence which had decreed that an animal which had spent his first twelve months abandoned and unwanted staring uncomprehendingly into that unchanging stinking darkness should be whisked in a moment into an existence of light and movement and love Because I don’t think any dog had it uite so good as he did from then on Escaping to Yorkshire with Herriot is a breath of fresh air I hope to return there soon Received through a GoodReads First Reads giveaway

    Owen I LOVE IT My favorite dog was Tricky Woo I just liked the story—the storIES—of Tricky Woo I think it would be weird to be a vet I don’t want to remove body parts Mom Owen was gifted this book from one of his great grandmas It’s a compilation of dog stories from the Yorkshire veterinary practice of James Herriot The stories are all heartwarming making this book a nice cozy read for an animal lover

    Back in the 70s my mom and I read All Creatures Great and Small together the first book in James Herriot's warm and funny series about the life of a country vet in Yorkshire We loved that one so much that we continued on with the next three books All Things Bright and Beautiful All Things Wise and Wonderful and The Lord God Made Them All in the series also We both got such a kick out of them Some of the stories were funny some were sad others completely entertaining The one thing they all had in common was that they were written by a masterful storyteller Reading this small book of the author's favorite dog stories brought back many happy memories of time spent with my mom reading those stories and sharing something together that we loved I wish she could have been here with me to read these stories again She would have loved that and I would have too
