Monday and Tuesday was Westminster, which I watch every year, and to continue the celebration of animals, today's post will be about James Herriot. James Herriot was Alf Wight, who was a country vet in Yorkshire starting in 1940. The stories are real, with animals and clients Herriot worked with during his country vet days. Some will make you laugh and some will make you cry (seriously, you will need tissues!). They are great books, and I highly recommend them for all animal lovers.
These books inspired me as a kid, and until middle school, I wanted to be a vet. 7th grade hit and after dissecting everything, including a fresh cow's heart, I almost broke down when I told my parents I didn't want to be a vet anymore :( I still read these books but needless to say, I'm not a vet.
