Fun book for animal lovers. I especially enjoyed the stories about cats and dogs. Writer is a caring and sensative animal lover with a great sense of humor.

Do you love animals more than anything in the world and have thought that you'd like to be a veterinarian? Wells, a practicing veterinarian in a rural Rocky Mountain Colorado clinic, delivers a humorous and insightful look at his life and work with a wide range of animals. He recounts his rigorous education and on-the-job training as a vet commencing in rural eastern South Dakota. His 36 stories range from treating circus animals to miniature pigs to yaks, along with a host of cat, dog and horse anecdotes. Anyone who loves animals or has enjoyed James Herriot's books will love these short, down-home stories filled with heartfelt emotion and laugh-out-loud incidents.
