Dr. P. J. Miller is back! Following his first installment, Cute Poodles, Sweet Old Ladies & Hugs, Dr. Miller has compiled another volume of truly awesome veterinary tales. Come along for the ride again as Dr. Miller delivers stories that feature colorful clients, endearing pets, his own beloved bulldog, and a hurricane. All the sassy hospital staff that readers came to love are back, including that special staff member who seems to work by her own particular standards of professionalism (you know the one). In Designer Dogs, Awkward Hugs & Pigeons, Dr. Miller goes behind the scenes of his veterinary practice to provide a true insider’s view into life as an animal doctor. Dr. Miller employs the same unique style of humorous storytelling that readers loved in his first novel. Hidden behind the humor, Dr. Miller gives a deeper glimpse into how emotional and strong the human-animal bond can be. A must read for any aspiring veterinary professional or animal lover.
Who hasn't wondered what a animal doctor does. I personally am a little more invested because my daughter really wants to be one when she grows up, so this was the perfect read for me. I loved the use of comedy from Miller, it had me laughing throughout. I liked the authenticity of his writing, you can tell he knows what he is writing about and is able to portray the job in a way that people like me, who are not doctors can understand. Wonderful stories and examples of experiences along with great feel good parts!
