The Pet Doctor - Episode 197 Newfoundland’s James Herriot

September 11, 201444 min
Every aspiring veterinary student and legions of pet lovers all over the world have read the adventures of the British veterinary surgeon, James ‘Alf’ Wight, more commonly known as Dr. James Herriot. Where the Yorkshire Dales had Dr. Herriot, the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland Canada has Dr. Andrew Peacock.

Dr. Peacock is a veterinarian who has had to do it all from delivering calves in a blizzard, breakneck relocation efforts of caribou, dealing with Bingo playing polar bears to trying to decipher the unique dialect of the locals. Dr. Peacock was extremely gracious and invited me into his home near Carbonear, Newfoundland where he captivated me with tales from his upcoming book, Creatures of the Rock.
