Book of the Week February 17-24 The Pup's Tale

Because I have so many titles, most readers know only a fraction of my work. Book of the Week is an experimental page for interested readers to learn more about individual titles.

The Pup's Tale is number 6 in the Pet Vet series.

Trump, the Jack Russell Terrier, lives with Doctor Jeanie of the Pet Vet clinic. Dr Jeanie is an expert at helping ailing animals, and she explains everything to the owners. But who can explain to the animals themselves? Trump, of course! Trump inherited the mantle of A.L.O. (Animal Liaison Officer) from the previous incumbent (Whiskey the cockatoo) when Dr Max retired, and she is very good at the job. She has her paws full with Tiny, though. Tiny is a chocolate labrador pup whose mother couldn't look after him. It was a bleak outlook for Tiny until Trump had a bright idea. She couldn't raise him herself, but she thought she knew someone who might!

The Pup's Tale, which I co-wrote with my husband, Darrel, is probably one of the most heart-warming of the Pet Vet series.

  1. I must say your covers are inspired. This one would jump straight of a bookshop shelf onto someone's lap!
