Dr. Hart's Original Petpourri
Fact, fancy, trivia and whimsy about pets, vets, and owners
This book is a 40,000 word personal collection of fact, fancy, trivia and whimsy about pets, vets, and owners. It is a grab-bag of material to enlighten, amuse entertain and perhaps educate. It is designed to be dipped into, browsed, or read at leisure.
Petpourri is a 'corruption' of pot-pourri,from the French pot, thick stew or porridge, and pourri, rotten. So I suppose you could describe it as a thick rotten stew of animal stuff! Tasty and filling.
There are over 450 entries, including poems and limericks, proverbs, sayingsand quotations, Crossed-Wire Conversations between veterinarians and clients, and rare findings like mouse condos, cat detectives, animal pub names in London, and why a veterinarian invented the pneumatic tire.
"If you've ever wanted to know more about the loveable creatures we call 'pets' look no further! An amazing collection of whimsical trivia and real facts... lots of fun for animal lovers." Jack Hanna, Director Emeritus Columbus Zoo, and Host, TV's "Into the Wild."
