How Animals Saved My Life: Being the Supervet
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

THE NO.1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER It has been 30 years since Noel Fitzpatrick graduated as a veterinary surgeon, and that 22-year-old from Ballyfin, Ireland, is now one of the leading veterinary surgeons in the world. The journey to that point has seen Noel treat thousands of animals - many of whom were thought to be beyond help - animals that have changed his life, and the lives of those around them, for the better. If the No.1 Sunday Times bestseller Listening to the Animals was about Noel's path to becoming The Supervet, then How Animals Saved My Life is about what it's like to actually be The Supervet. Noel shares the moving and often funny stories of the animals he's treated and the unique 'animal people' he has met along the way. He reflects on the valuable lessons of Integrity, Care, Love and Hope that they have taught him - lessons that have sustained him through the unbelievable highs and crushing lows of a profession where lives are quite literally at stake. As Noel explores what makes us connect with animals so deeply, we meet Peanut, the world's first cat with two front bionic limbs; eight-year-old therapy dachschund Olive; Odin, a gorgeous five-year-old Dobermann, who would prove to be one of Noel's most challenging cases - and of course his beloved companions Ricochet, the Maine Coon, and Keira, the scruffy Border terrier who is always by his side.

Terrier Memoirs

Terrier Memoirs paints a mosaic that these players, cheerleaders, coaches, trainers, and friends of football were universally affected by the presence of and participation in Boston University Football. They came from all walks of life, were unified as a team toward common and lofty goals, and emerged as educated men prepared to begin their professional lives not just with lessons from the classroom but those on the field of competition. Their stories are personal, comic, heartbreaking, and poignant. They speak of accomplishments where it could be argued that were it not for football and the opportunity it provided in obtaining an education, their professional accomplishments may never have come to pass. Their stories are proof that football indeed has a value on college campuses and should be considered an investment, not just a cost.
