that new book!
DESIGNER DOGS, AWKWARD HUGS & A PIGEON
Dr. Miller is back! He has compiled another volume of truly awesome veterinary tales. Come along for the ride again as Dr. Miller delivers stories that feature colorful clients, endearing pets, his own beloved bulldog, and a hurricane. All the sassy hospital staff that readers came to love are back, including that special staff member who seems to work by her own particular standards of professionalism (you know the one). In Designer Dogs, Awkward Hugs & a Pigeon, Dr. Miller goes behind the scenes of his veterinary practice to provide a true insider’s view into life as an animal doctor. Dr. Miller employs the same unique style of humorous storytelling that readers loved in his first novel. Hidden behind the humor, Dr. Miller gives a deeper glimpse into how emotional and strong the human-animal bond can be. Another must read for any animal lover.
Dr. P.J. Miller was born and raised in the heart of New York City, midtown Manhattan. He did his undergraduate course work at University of Florida, and majored in Animal Science. In his third year at UF he was accepted early into the prestigious Royal School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh Scotland. Edinburgh, famous for cloning Dolly the sheep, is one of the oldest and most highly recognized veterinary schools in the world. Dr. Miller graduated from Edinburgh in 1999. He has been practicing veterinary medicine in Central Florida for over twenty years. Dr. Miller has been the owner of his own practice for over a decade. He lives with his wife and two children in Central Florida. He loves all animals, obviously, but is partial to bulldogs, Chihuahuas, and cats that act like dogs. Like most transplanted New Yorkers, he's still looking for that perfect slice of pizza.
