Home James Herriot James Herriot's Dog Stories. James Herriot's Dog Stories, . As I look through the pages of this book I have the impression of a wheel turning full circle. As a child, I was fascinated by dogs and had a burning ambition to be a dog doctor, then I spent a lifetime treating the ailments of cows, horses, sheep and pigs, yet here I am, in my twilight years, bringing out a volume of my dog stories. I feel that an explanation rather than an introduction is necessary.
Herriot, please come! He's going flop-bott again!" I hoisted the little dog onto a table and very quickly sorted out his problem. It baffled me that the Peke was always so pleased to see me. Any dog who could still like a man who grabbed him and squeezed his bottom hard every time they met had to have an incredibly forgiving nature. But Tricki never showed any resentment; in fact he was an outstandingly equable little animal, bursting with intelligence, and I was genuinely attached to him. It was a pleasure to be his personal physician. Often I drove off with a hairy form galloping alongside and the dog would usually give a final defiant bark after a few hundred yards to speed me on my way. But Jock was different. He was really dedicated. Car chasing to him was a deadly serious art which he practiced daily without a trace of levity.

The stories are all riveting - some poignant, but many laugh out loud funny (such as the tales of Mrs. Pumphrey and her Pekingese dog, Tricki Woo - hysterical!). I LOVE James Herriot's book and read them over and over again. They make me feel good, even the stories that make me cry. I haven't met anyone who doesn't love his books.

Don, a beautiful sleek-coated Irish setter, was my first dog and I learned from an early age the pleasure that one gets from watching a dog-whether scenting after rabbits on the hillside, or indicating quite plainly that it is dinnertime, or sleeping in front of the fire, whiffling little noises, perhaps at the rabbits in his dreams. When I decided I wanted to be a vet, I knew that I wanted to be a dog doctor, so I could spend all my time with dogs
Christopher Timothy, the star of television's All Creatures Great and Small, and the acknowledged voice of Dr. Herriot, lovingly narrates this new collection of the good doctor's canine encounters. Here are tales of golden retrievers and sheepdogs, beagles and dachshunds, purebreds and crossbreeds and just plain mutts and, of course, Tricki Woo, Mrs. Pumphrey's memorable Pekinese. Each tale is suffused with the humor, wisdom and humanity of one of the greatest storytellers of our time: James Herriot.
