A wonderful account of the coming of age of a vet. Jeff Wells has written an honest and poignant account of vet school and his early years in practice. Dr. Wells shows equal parts compassion to both animal and human in his often humorous but always kind stories. May you be so lucky to have him as your vet and even luckier to call him your friend. <i>Susan Richards, author of Chosen by A Horse and Chosen Forever</i></p> What a treat it is to read tales from the tail-bearers. In this most welcome book we not only learn about animals in need, but also what it is like to be a veterinarian with a heart. This will be a better and more compassionate world if we listen to the stories animals tell us, for they are smart and passionate beings who have a point of view from which we can learn a lot about them and ourselves. <i>Marc Bekoff, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals, Wild Justice, and Animals at Play</i></p> Anyone who has a pet will absolutely love this charming and humorous collection of personal experiences with animals. Jeff Wells is a veterinarian with heartfelt regard for both animals and their human companions, a compassion and respect too infrequently experienced in today's world. His poignant stories recall the tales of another veterinarian, the legendary James Herriot. <i>John A. Hoyt, President Emeritus, The Human Society of the United States</i></p> [H]umorous and insightful . . . [Wells's] stories would be suitable--and should be required--reading in even the most sophisticated veterinary school programs. <i>Publishers Weekly</i></p> Another winning veterinary memoir deserving of space next to the immortal James Herriot and his heirs. <i>Booklist</i></p>"
