THE MAN WHO LOVED DOGS
James Herriot was a famous doctor for animals. He was born in Scotland
in 1915. He grew up with a pet dog named Don. Wherever he went, Don went
with him. They would often hikesintosthe mountains. After Herriot graduated
from high school, he made up his mind to be a vet, especially for dogs. He
went to college, but soon found out that to be a vet just for dogs was impossible
during that time. Mostly, vets helped heal horses, cows, sheep and pigs. As
he loved animals, he continued his education. After he graduated, he found a
job in Yorkshire, England. It was a beautiful part of England. Herriot loved
the beautiful countryside, but treating large animals was very hard work. Be
fore long, Herriot noticed that people in the country also had dogs as pets.
They were never treated when they became sick because the vets wouldn't heal
them. Herriot started treating the dogs. At first other vets laughed at him, be
cause he wasn't working on“real”animals. However, the owners of the dogs
were very glad that Herriot would help their pets. They regarded their pets as
members of their families. Herriot knew exactly how they felt when they saw
their sick dogs become well again. He himself kept two dogs, Hector and Dan.
They would go with him in his car every day as he went to the farms to heal
Later in his life, James Herriot wrote a lot about his experience as a country
vet in Yorkshire, England. He wrote ten books, all about animals. He even
wrote a book, just about dogs, James Herriot's Dog Stories. No matter how
much he loved all kinds of animals, he loved dogs the best.
