Book Signing at Common Good Books

The book signing at Garrison Keillor’s bookstore, Common Good Books, was a great deal of fun!  Thanks to everyone who came to learn about the book and the first year of my veterinary clinic in Minnesota.  It was wonderful and fitting  that so many dogs and such varied breeds would participate in the celebration.  Thanks as well to the terrific booksellers at Common Good Books: Claudette, Jean, Martin and Sue.  Your Minnesota hospitality was genuine and very much appreciated.   Here is a picture from the event.  If you are in St. Paul, be sure to visit Common Good Books in the Cathedral Hill area, just downstairs from Nina’s.  I left autographed copies of the book at the store.                                                              


On Wednesday, we will continue discussing pancreatitis in cats.
