The Egyptians loved them and it is probable that they were a happy part of family life in Stone Age caves. I noted, too, that they were thought to be descended from wolves or jackals.

The James Herriot's books are wonderful!! Animal lovers everywhere love him. I have read everyone published, and give them as gifts to anyone I know that has pets.

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!). The James Herriot's books are wonderful!! Animal lovers everywhere love him.

Only 8 left in stock (more on the way). They are short stories, taken from his books about being a vet in rural Yorkshire England during the Pre & post-war (WWII) era of the last century. It is as much about the dog owners as the dogs & is read by actor Christopher Timothy, using the local dialects of North Yorkshire. I never get tired of hearing these stories - great gift, and great for car trips & commutes!

This is a must for all dog lovers! -- As the title says, a collection of James Herriot's favorite dog stories, with an intro by the author. They are short stories, taken from his books about being a vet in rural Yorkshire England during the Pre & post-war (WWII) era of the last century. It is as much about the dog owners as the dogs & is read by actor Christopher Timothy, using the local dialects of North Yorkshire. I never get tired of hearing these stories -- great gift, and great for car trips & commutes! I also love the other James Herriot collections of Favorite Cat Stories, and Favorite Animal Stories. 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 have the CD collection, but no doubt you can get downloads now.

I wrote this same review for James Herriot's Cat Stories: I am a big fan of James Herriot's books and have most of them in my collection. His stories are heart-warming accounts of love, compassion, and kindness to our furry friends. However, this is not a new book of stories. What the publishers have done is take various dog stories from his previous books (All Creatures Great and Small and others) and created a book specifically with dog stories. Same with James Herriot's Cat Stories. So, if you want to give a book specifically to a dog lover, this would be a nice gift. If you are looking for a new collection of stories, look elsewhere.

If you have any passion for animals at all, you will devour this book. It's so sweet and wonderful -- a masterpiece of 20th century literature.
Mr. Herriot was truly a gifted writer. His heart could be felt in every word -- he deeply cared for the animals he doctored over the years. Aside from the endearing tails (pardon the pun), he masterfully described the European countryside, the people who belonged to the pets, the pubs he frequented and his everyday astonishing feats of medical marvelry. Yet he was so humble and down-to-earth. His stories are either tear-jerkers or pant-wetters. More than once I found myself nearly crying during study period at college because I was laughing so hard.
Some of my favorite shorts were "The Card Over the Bed", "Tricki Woo", "Granville Bennett", "Have a Cigar" and "Mrs. Donovan" -- the latter being my favorite. (Mrs. Donovan was a crone who patrolled the streets of Darrowby trying to cure people's animals quite often causing strife for Mr. Herriot.)
The very best thing about this book, aside from it being a quick and easy read, is that the stories are broken up so that you can put it down at any time and come back to it without fear of having lost your place.
James Herriot was the master of animal literature. Never have I encountered a more tasteful writer who so accurately depicted the behavior of dogs. I am a huge animal lover having two cats and a dog of my own. I found amazing similarities between the antics of the dogs showcased in this book and my own golden lab, and reading it made me want to cuddle him closer.

This is one of my Christmas tradition books. Every year, I read this book or the James Harriot's Favorite Cat Stories. My old book finally reached a point where it started falling apart. So I purchased this replacement. Each chapter is an individual story so are perfect for bedtime reading. They are all wonderful stories. Especially if you have children who love animals. I will say that not all of his stories have happy endings, but they ALL have real endings. These are real stories from his life. You can tell from his writing that he loved his job and the animals he met.

This is the third time I've purchased this book - I keep giving it away. I first read this book several years ago. It was my first by James Herriot, and lead to my reading everything else he's written, plus the TV series and films, plus the audio books read by Christopher Timothy who played James Herriot on the screen. Having just finished reading it again, I can honestly say it is just as fresh as ever.

This book is a collection of all the dog stories from James Herriot's other books (All Creatures Great and Small, etc.) into a single volume. Wonderful, heart-warming, and at times, bittersweet, this is a must read for anyone who likes animal stories. And best of all, Herriot added commentary to the end of each story, so you get to read his thoughts on the story after all these years.

Because Herriot was a veterinarian in Yorkshire, England, the language is rich with the local color. Some of the terms may be unfamiliar to Americans, but don't let that stop you. Aye (yes) you'll get used to it.

Bought this as a gift for someone who loves dogs. I have not read this particular book, but I assume it is a compilation of the best dog stories from all of James Herriot's books and those I have read. 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.

The James Herriot's books are wonderful!! Animal lovers everywhere love him. I have read everyone published, and give them as gifts to anyone
I know that has pets. Just gave the Cat Stories to my granddaughter and she is "hooked" too.
These stories are also on DVD's. So there is something for everyone. James Herriot is unequaled to any animal author I have read! It is fun to know these adventures are true. Start your children young on these books....
I grew up with these stories on cassette, and Christopher Timothy's mellow voice put me to sleep many many nights, as well as entertaining me on long car rides or during "quiet times". I was thrilled to find these CDs, and with more stories than I ever had on cassette! As someone who also reads the books, I can say that these are faithful accountings of Herriot's adventures, though they aren't word for word. Timothy's voice acting is excellent, going back and forth from character to character and accent to accent without hesitation. And as with all Herriot's work, the stories are charming and real and full of hope and good. I'm a very happy customer.
