Andrew Peacock ¾ 8 Read

Read Creatures of the Rock ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF A James Herriot for the 21st century recounts his adventures as a newcomer to Newfoundland When Andrew Peacock made the move from Ontario to Newfoundland he thought he was kicking off his career as a newly ualified veterinarian with an adventure in a temporary location It was certainly an adventure a whole series of adventures but there was nothing temporary about it He practiced in Newfoundland for nearly 30 years and is still living there In fact he has lived there so long the locals are starting to think of him as one of them Creat. Yes indeed Andrew Peacock s Creatures of The Rock is very much similar in both set up and general feel to the well known and much beloved memoirs of veterinarian turned author James Herriot or rather Alf Wight except that instead of a locality in rural England rural Yorkshire to be exact Creatures of the Rock presents and features the author s experiences as a veterinarian in rural Newfoundland which he originally assumed would only be a temporary assignment an adventurous learning experience before settling down in some metropolitan urban small animal practice but it ended up becoming a permeant sojourn of than thirty years and still counting so permanent in fact that even the locals are now starting to consider Andrew Peacock and his family as one of their own and no longer simply tolerated interlopers from OntarioAnd while many of the anecdotes recounted in Creatures of the Rock are of course and by simple nature and necessity standard rural veterinarian type of fare such as having to attend to ailing animals around the clock and during inclement weather because Creatures of the Rock is set in Newfoundland and Andrew Peacock was in many ways the only ualified veterinarian for hundreds of miles some of the presented scenarios are of course uniue to the province like having to free an entangled trapped humpback whale from fishing gear or dealing with a polar bear that decided to pay a visit to a local bingo hall Now as far as the storylines itself as far as Creatures of the Rock holds up as a personal memoir although I have indeed and in fact found Andrew Peacock s narrative much enjoyable and while the likely similarity to James Herriot s own veterinarian memoirs had already endeared Creatures of the Rock to me before I even commenced my perusal it is also and yes a bit unfortunately the noticed differences between Peacock s and Herriot s writing style and modes of expression that have made me only consider but a high three star ranking for Creatures of the Rock For although the author s engagingly presented anecdotes and episodic scenarios are entertaining and sometimes even rather thought provoking they are really and truly usually just a bit too brief in general a bit too lacking in descriptive narrative detail for albeit that with James Herriot his diverse anecdotes always or at least usually contain a combination of description dialogue and personal musings Andrew Peacock s featured and described episodes do rather often than not present but a bare bones type of exposition adeuately rendered perhaps but sadly also often lacking in much and sometimes even in my opinion necessary additional superfluous details and information and certainly NOT usually in any way enough for me to have both my academic and my cultural historical interests satisfied and thus almost always after having perused an episode of Creatures of the Rock leaving me hungering for and feeling a trifle frustrated A fun read a uick and easy read both heartwarming and with much entertainment value but for me personally Andrew Peacock is still just scratching the proverbial surface so to speak with his Creatures of the Rock and there is just not enough description expansion not enough provided information and details on the animal patients Peacock is treating on the owners the caretakers of said animals even on his own family for me to have absolutely and totally enjoyed to have completely loved Creatures of the Rock with no reservations and no caveats for potential readers as I am sorry to say that while Andrew Peacock s veterinarian memoirs are akin to the James Herriot books the author very definitely and sadly is no James Herriot Hegel on Action off his career as a newly ualified veterinarian with an adventure in a temporary location It was certainly an adventure a whole series Painting Popular Duck Decoys: 16 Full-Color Plates and Complete Instructions (Dover Books on Woodworking and Carving) of adventures but there was nothing temporary about it He practiced in Newfoundland for nearly 30 years and is still living there In fact he has lived there so long the locals are starting to think L'Amant de Marguerite Duras of him as The One Footed Fairy and Other Stories one Asterix to the Rescue of them Creat.

Recently memoirs have been all I wanted to read After reading A Mother s Reckoning Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy by Sue Klebold the mother of a teenaged mass shooting perpetrator and The Education of Augie Merasty A Residential School Memoir a residential school memoir I decided for something a bit less traumatic Creatures of the Rock A Veterinarian s Adventures in Newfoundland is the light humorous memoir of a now retired provincial veterinarian in Newfoundland Each thirty six chapters relate a noteworthy event ranging from difficult calf births and horse wounds to whale rescue and caribou relocationWhat emerges right away from this book is the author s love for Newfoundland Born in Ontario he had initially agreed he and his wife would work in rural Newfoundland for two years and then move on to further adventures However the couple fell in love with the place and still live there three decades later Peacock repeatedly praises the landscape from the beautiful valley between two rocky ridges North River to the breathtaking drive to the Cape Shore region His enthusiasm is very contagious and definitely makes you want to see Newfoundland for yourselfBeside the beautiful scenery the reader gets a glimpse of Peacock s veterinarian experience and of farming practices in this remote province Amongst the many births euthanasias and wound caring it s the stories about cow milk that struck me tremendouslyIn order to be economically useful a cow must produce milk at a level that puts great strain on her body Dairy cows commonly run into health problems caused by this unnaturally high production of milkThese diminutive cows the Jerseys are pushed to make so much milk relative to their body size that they can lose a lot of calcium they need to keep their bodies healthy and to maintain normal brain activity Without enough calcium cattle can get very sick and even dieThe goal with individual cows is for them to have a calf and then produce milk for about three hundred days The cow then gets a break for about sixty days before she is expected to have another calf This works out to a cycle of about one full year a cow s pregnancy lasts around nine months leaving her three months to get pregnant after deliveryI am not sure that this is what Andrew Peacock intended but I have not been able to drink any cow milk since I read his book This book might have done to me what vegan activists never managed toThis being said I wouldn t say Creatures of the Rock was an exciting read While there is definitely value in Peacock s experiences the narrative is very lacking It often feels dry and cold with a focus on the technical aspects of his interventions He often breaks any possible tension in a story by stating that a calving issue will wait till the end of his amateur hockey game or a suspicion of dog abuse a few days While several stories were insightful especially the one about a little boy facing the awful choice to euthanize his cat many others weren t that impressive At times I felt frankly boredOverall Creatures of the Rock is an easy entertaining read perfect to accompany a vacation or a long week end It is always fascinating to have a peek at other people s experience and other places However it is not the most thrilling book as the writing unfortunately lacks of stamina and some stories may leave you with an underwhelming feeling
