James Herriot's Dog Stories
This is one of my personal favorite books. It's sort of an autobiography or a collection of short stories. James Herriot is a real vet who lived in Yorkshire, England around the 50s and later years. He wrote this book and many other good books. This book is a collection of short stories involving dogs. They are all true. Lots are funny, some are sad. Almost all are heartwarming. He's a funny man and strange things happen to him. (Including being an uncle to my favorite dog in the book, Tricki Woo.) This is a very good book, one you can curl up and read for hours. There is some language, (the S-word 1 or 2 times, God's name in vain, and the word bloody, which is a curse word in England, plus the b-word referring to a female dog) Most of these words, however, are just regular words in their world. I am NOT saying these words are acceptible, but that they are not cuss words to them. So I would advise reader caution on this one, but if you can mark those words out, it's a great book.
