    the life of a veterinarian in the country

    Many of you have undoubtedly read, as we have, the books by James Herriot in the "All Creatures Great and Small" series about life as an English country veterinarian in Yorkshire. They are very enjoyable reading that is, unfortunately, marred by a fair amount of profane and vulgar language. Herriot did edit some of his stories in versions for children. Dr. Robert T. Sharp is a country veterinarian in Hillsboro, OH, which happens to be my hometown. My mother sometimes took her cats to him, and my wife Karen remembers at least once while we were visiting there that she went with Mother to his office with the cats.
    While spending a few days in Hillsboro a few years back, my aunt and uncle told me about a book that he wrote, so I dropped by his office and purchased a copy. He came out and signed it for me personally! I wondered if it was limited to local interest, but it is published by a national publisher. The stories are warm, humorous, and very interesting. Being a native of Hillsboro, I was able to recognize many of the places and even some of the people, even though names had been changed to protect the innocent (and guilty), such as "Bill Lukhart" (Dr. Bill Lukens), the previous vet from whom Sharp purchased his practice; Doris (Rooney), the local cab driver; and "Jim Harris" (Jerry Hague), owner of a car dealership in town. I would not have known it if they had not told me, but the goat in the "Escapegoat" story was from my uncle's stock farm.

    A Must Read For All Animal Lovers!

    Not since since James Herriot's 'All Creatures Great and Small' has come a book that will make you laugh, and cry! Dr. Sharp has a gift for writting, the wittism to put it to page and the love and knowledge of his profession to share it with us all! I recommend you read this with your favotite 'furbaby' cuddled up next to you! Once I picked this book up, it was hard to put down. If Dr. Sharp is reading this review, please, please, take out the time to write another!
