Monday Mumbling - A Boy and His Dog
Okay, maybe not necessarily HIS dog, but a dog, or a cat, or a gerbil, or horse. Inspired by Kris' comment last week about vets, I thought I'd mention some of my fave vet books. There's something about a guy who loves and animals and wants to take care of them that makes you go all smooshy inside.
So some of my fave vets have been:
In A Sure Fire Cure by Kate Steele, shy repressed vet Dean is swept off his feet by horse-rancher Scott, while dealing with a nasty politician father, and a stalker (sorry Chris, this is older, so stalker were new then LOL).
Once Upon a Veterinarian by Drew Zachary found vet Ben and cop Tim meet on a case of pet poisoning and have a bit of trouble getting together, no thanks to Ben's obliviousness to his female partner's no so subtle sabotage of his relationship.
Newly graduated vet student Wally, tags along with his friend Phillip when he goes to visit rancher Dakota in Andrew Grey's Shared Range. A cute story of a closeted rancher finding love.
Florist Jude finds vet Rex, new to town when he needs help for his cat in Shawn Lane's Twice in a Lifetime. Another sweet one with Jude a bit nervous about starting a new relationship.
Man and Wolf by Kate Roman has wolf-shifter Rob meets vet Jamie when his dog falls ill and there is instant attraction, combined with a government conspiracy that Rob has run from, a psycho animal control officer and a funny little dog they adopt.
So, any favourite vets I've missed? I'm sure there are. Do you find a guy with an animal makes you just go "awwwww"?
