Publisher's Summary

This enchanting program collects some of the Yorkshire vet's favorite stories about one of his favorite animals, each tale as memorable and heartwarming as the last. Christopher Timothy, the star of television's All Creatures Great and Small, and 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.

    "Fascinating"

    These are fine stories from a Vet who really loved and understood his job. The only disappointment was that "Jingo and Skipper" wasn't included in the anthology.

    "all James Herriot's stories are TERRIFIC"

    His stories may go back over 70 years, but I cherish each and every story. I laugh, I cry and I learn. Everyone should enjoy such stories.

    Story
    "You will never tire of hearing these stories!!!"
    If you could sum up James Herriot's Favorite Dog Stories in three words, what would they be?

    Dog lovers dream


    What other book might you compare James Herriot's Favorite Dog Stories to and why?

    The Miss Julie Series by Ann B Ross because they are so entertaining that one can't stop listening


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Timothy – was your favorite?

    That's hard I like Tricky Lou? the rich ladies little overweight dog. But I am also partial to the Border Collie stories. They are my absolute favorite dogs to read about or to watch


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!! And I started it over and listen 2 more times. I will listen again after I finish Herriots next book All Things Great And Small


    Any additional comments?

    I just love the narrator and his accents. I feel as if I have been to that part of the UK

    Mostly using audiobooks when my concentration is so bad that I can't read text. Or sometimes when I feel the need to practise my [listening] english even more. I'm not very picky when it comes to stories, so can listen to practically anything – and have a knack to find SOMETHING in each story that I like. *smile*

    "Good stories for all dog lovers"

    As a dog lover I can't help but love James Herriot's stories, he is a good writer and obviously a good vet – he knows what's truly important when treating a dog and dealing with their owners. He lets us into a bit of his world – getting to know these amazing dog personalities, as well as their humans.

    The narrator did a truly great job, his read was a great listen.

    The only thing that was off to me was the music that at times popped up in places that felt completely random and at one point inappropriate.

    Other than tht a great listen! And I will most likely listen to it again at some point.
