Overview

“The mother in the floor-length skirt with her hair pulled rigidly back from her face said, ‘Don’t be ridiculous. There are no dogs in heaven.’”

For the millions of dog owners, cat lovers, horse riders, and even guinea pig enthusiasts in America, here’s a delightful collection of almost forty tales by veterinarian Robert T. Sharp that relates the joys and misadventures of being an animal doctor in small-town U.S.A.

Join Dr. Sharp as he tells charming comic stories, such as nervously preparing to inject a hypodermic needle into an ornery an dangerous one-ton Holstein bull; becoming famous in the community for his uncanny ability to capture skunks, earning the nickname “skunkbuster”; and caring for a courageous injured kitten who survived amputations of both right legs, somehow learned to walk, earned the name “Lefty,” and was taken in by two little girls who loved him.

With humor and compassion, No Dogs in Heaven? portrays the lovable and not-so-lovable characteristics of human and animal nature, all infused by a devoted veterinarian’s belief that yes, indeed, there are dogs in heaven.
