The very special magic of James Herriot’s storytelling shines throughout James Herriot's Dog Stories; this classic collection of stories about the animal he loves the most.

Here are some of the dogs who have won a special place in the country vet’s heart – dogs like Tricki Woo, the little Pekinese suffering from ‘flop-butt’; Clancy the dog who nobody would go near; and Gyp, the sheepdog who only barked once in his life.

They’re joined by lovable dogs of all shapes and sizes in a wonderful collection of stories, which will be enjoyed by all dog-lovers and James Herriot fans alike.

The tales can be read and re-read... what shines through all the stories is that dogs give us enormous pleasure.
