A graduate of the Royal Veterinary College, London, I, (Bob Hart), do solemnly swear that I am a veterinarian with more than forty years experience in academia and private practice in the UK and USA. I am also an experienced husband of many years. My wife, Veronica, and I are active members of the Florida Writers Association, and several theater companies. This means we have to keep up the appearance of being semi-literate.
Having been laughed at by clients and patients over the years, I thought to share the experiences. Had I not done so, my wife, also a writer, would have written about me out of spite--well I am sure it would have been loving spite! She writes 'Murder Mystery Plays', and I would be sure to be the victim--it's how she gets rid of her frustrations.
Hart's Original Petpourri, Vol 1, Miscellany, will be followed by Vol 2, 'Cageliners", a series of vignettes about pets, vets and owners. Veterinarians often line their cages with newspaper which can be easily disposed of when soiled (it's also cheap). There are those who say that this should be the fate of the paper these little stories are written on.
