Adult Nonfiction SF426.2 .D84 2009
Summary: Animal lovers of all kinds can read how a decades-long feud between two enemies who use each other's dogs to hurt each other culminates in a dramatic courtroom battle where they unwittingly end up helping each other and how a call on an elderly woman to surrender twentythree cats provokes a surprising revelation. The police chief forces the animal control officer (ACO) into a presentation at the local high school-for students with behavioral problems. After a few awkward moments, the ACO finds herself at ease. Drawn to these engaging teenagers, she realizes that sometimes what you are meant to do in life is not always something that you choose. Sometimes it chooses you. In the tradition of James Herriot's "All Creatures Great and Small", John Grogan's "Marley & Me", and Lisa Duffy-Korpics' "Tales from a Dog Catcher" is an unforgettable look at the lives of everyday people (and animals) who, whether by accident or design, come into contact with the sad, comical, and often profound world of an animal control officer.
