The Bull in the Darkness and the One-Eyed Dog

Scenes from the Life of a Country Veterinarian

Robert T. Sharp

About this book

Dr. Robert Sharp tells remarkable, highly readable, and true stories of a country vet’s encounters with animal patients of all kinds, their equally unusual if not unique owners, and the flavorful rural settings they inhabit. The Bull in the Darkness and the One-Eyed Dog is a collection of his most memorable country animal cases—many funny, some almost unbelievable, and some thought-provoking.
