Book Review-Tennessee Tails, Pets and Their People-Kathryn Primm, DVM

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

This book is not what you would normally expect when you consider the author is a veterinarian. What it is--the heart warming and sometimes heartbreaking stories of some of her patients and their owners. The pets and people's identities are fictitious, not so the stories. Katherine Primm is not only a caring vet and human being-she is a great writer who will immerse you in these stories involving you and drawing you right in to the laughter and predicaments only a person who owns a pet will truly understand.

If you have ever owned a pet then I urge you to read this short book. It took me less then an hour to read but I plan to re read it several times--it was that good.

There aren't animal abuse stories in there are there? I don't know if I can handle that. Animal abuse is something that breaks my heart.

I love heartwarming stories about animals. I really hope this is what it's all about. Pets can be so loving. They always just love the affection you give them and usually return it themselves. I'd love to read what this is all about.
