Keister is on the way to nowhere and yet the starting point for the way back to everywhere. Duncan secretly uses the family transport business to distribute goods that don't appear on the manifests of his trucks, and his wife gets a dog. In the meantime the Shire Clerk tries to keep control.

Tales from the Dog-catcher who captures your heart. A "must read" for anyone with an interest in animals of any kind. Critter Capers offers a collection of short stories and gentle humour easily shared and enjoyed by a broad range of age groups, from early teens to adult. Over his 2+ decades as an Animal Control Officer Wittek's "career leap" was anything but dull, with duties ranging from the simple collection and adoption of stray and abandoned pets, to the rescue of animals whose curiosity and lapse in judgement trapped or otherwise jeopardised their safety. In Western Nevada, due to its often rural nature, animal control also includes dealing with a variety of wildlife -- the occasional bear, cougar, or deer--that try to choose city life over their native mountains and foothills. With the humour and compassion that made Wittek an outstanding animal advocate, Critter Capers shares with readers many of the adventures and misadventures that he encountered on a day-to-day basis.

Dog-catchers seldom get their due, and they do more than catch dogs. "Animal Control Officer" doesn't quite catch the full meaning of the job either. Other animals besides dogs can be involved-pigeons, ferrets, goats, cats, monkeys, snakes, squirrels, rats, and the occasional Bighorn Sheep. More than a few surprises happen in the course of a normal workday or night. At least they did in the 1980s when Linda Mack, Animal Control Officer Two, patrolled the streets of Seattle. Linda was not raised by wolves, but their descendants were always family. Living and working with dogs and with other animals was more enjoyable than a barrel of monkeys. Besides being fun, More Than a Dog's Talerecognizes that animals are medicinal, and good dog medicine can't be beat as a natural remedy for many of the bumps and maladies of real life. More Than a Dog's Tale is a collection of stories by the Seattle dog catcher who has a top tier IQ, and a heart that's even bigger than her mind. Animal lovers be forewarned! You won't be able to put this book down. You'll fall in love with every manner of animal, and the dog catcher who saves them, and saves herself. Within these pages are true stories of rescue, of love, and of what matters in life. -Kit Kirkpatrick, Certified Memoirist
