Arriving in 1970s’ London as a fresh-faced Canadian, Bruce Fogle assumed that because he knew the language, he would understand the English. As a graduate of the world’s best veterinary school, he also thought his profession would come naturally to him. He quickly learned not to make assumptions. Beginning his career at the prestigious Woodrow & Singleton surgery in the heart of the Knightsbridge, it was frequented by Britain’s most distinguished pet owners and also cared for the exotic inhabitants of the Harrods’ ‘Zoo Department.’ This rich and funny memoir, set against the vibrant backdrop of 1970s’ London, explores the unique bond between pets and their owners.
