Vet on Call
I often thought as a child that I would like to be a vet when I was all grown up, but I think I would have found some aspects of the job too distressing, never mind the length of time it takes to qualify! I suppose it must have been all those hours of watching James Herriot as a child or maybe it was the many trips to the vet when I was a child with various pets who were in need of some expert care. So it is no surprise at all that I loved the Vet on Call book by Mark Abraham, it is a tale of how Marc (having been told by his father to make something of himself) decided to set up an emergency out of hours service. As you can imagine it is packed full of a host of stories some funny, some sad, and we thoroughly recommend it as a great christmas read! The Nativity chapter will have you laughing out loud.Dougal was very impressed when we came back with our own copy earlier this year when we got to meet Marc at the Kennel Club launch of his 1st book. Marc has kindly donated a signed copy of his book which we have all ready to send out to one lucky winner. Some of you may recognise Marc from the telly where he has appeared on BBC Breakfast News, ITV's This Morning and Day Break, Sky's My Pet Shame amongst many others. Or if you are a tweeter you no doubt will have taken part in his Guess the breed challenges. You can check what Marc has been up to and read all about his latest projects on his website as well as getting loads of handy hints and tips about Canine Care on his iPhone app. How to Enter: 1.
