A collection of tories in Herriot 's book does the job of getting the reader emotionally involved.

It was almost like a zen exercise to sit in the quiet with a cuppa, dog at my feet and read th story or two before bed or early in the orning.

I ca n't recommend them highly enough nor say how much joy they gave me upon first reading them and that they are still capable of giving.While I love the first 2 in the " semi-biographic " group the most ( and rated them 5 stars) his other works are just as worth reading.

As Byron said of his beloved Boatswain, dogs possess " ... all the virtues of Man without his Vices. " Als this is suppose to be an ode to Herriot 's Dog Stories, not just dogs per se, but I do believe part of loving this book is being quite particular to canine company.

On my darker days, I try to remember the Mrs. Donovans of this world and I am grateful to James Herriot for documenting the existence of such extraordinarily ordinary and beautiful characters, human and canine.
