James Herriot.
 This story has been written by James Herriot. The
subject of this story is a pet dog which is spoilt by its
owner. The owner indulges her dog so much with food
and other comforts that the dog has become
overweight and cannot even walk properly. Finally, the
dog has been taken to a veterinary doctor who treats
the dog without using a single medicine.
 The dog is left with all other dogs so that it can play
and get the much needed physical exercise. After a
period of enough physical activities, the dog loses
much of its fat and becomes hale and hearty.
 Apparently, this is a simple story with simple subject.
But if we try to read between the words, the story has
much significance for our life as well.
 You will see many kids who are overweight and spoilt
because their parents just try to meet every demand of
the kid. The kid develops into a couch potato which is
not good for his life.
 Tricki was a small dog and was excessively loved by his
mistress, Mrs. Pumphery.
 He was greedy & loved food, but no exercise.
 As a result he became fat & Mrs. Pumphery believed
that he became lazy because he suffered from
malnutrition.
 Mrs. Pumphery was a wealthy woman. She loved her
dog too much.
 She gave him some little extras between meals to build
him up, malt, cod-liver oil and a bowl of Horlicks at
night.
 She gave him lot to eat but no exercise.
 Once he became ill & she was worried & made a frantic
call to Harriot who was a vet.
 James already had given suggestions regarding Tricki’s
balanced diet. But she never followed it.
 He was a vet. He was shocked to see Tricki hugely fat,
like a bloated sausage with a leg at each corner.
 He advised her to cut down on the sweet things.
 He expected call came within a few days & it
happened.
 He was called by Mrs. Pumphery as Tricki refused to
eat.
 He told her that Tricki needed immediate
hospitalization for keeping under observation at his
surgery for a fortnight.
 There he gave him no food no medicine but plenty of
water.
 Gradually he mixed with other dogs & started playing
with them.
 He had a lot of exercises & fun at the surgery.
 He was completely recovered & transformed into a
hard muscled dog.
 James Harriot treated the dog without medicine or
surgery.
 She was happy & filled with gratitude.
 She thanked Harriot & said it was a triumph of surgery.
 Mr. Pumphrey was a rich and emotional lady who has a
cute pet called Tricky. She loved him so much that she
overfed him. Tricki had put on a lot of weight which
made him lethargic. When doctor Herriot saw the fat
dog like a bloated sausage he was shocked. He made a
plan and told Mrs. Pumphrey that Tricki needed
treatment for a ailment which was possible only in
hospital. The doctor knew that Mrs. Pumphrey would
not be able to keep the dog on a proper diet.
 When the greedy dog went to the hospital he had to
remain hungry if he was slow to approach for food. He
was given food at fixed intervals. Soon he shed off a lot
of his body weight and became quite active.
When Tricki was at home he was pampered by Mrs.
Pumphrey. He had a luxurious life when he was served
with cream cake chocolate and horlicks. But when he
came to the doctor he became all right. When Mrs.
Pumphrey saw her active dog she thanked the doctor
and felt that it was a triumph of surgery.
 She was wealthy woman. She loved her dog too much.
She gave him some little extras between meals to build
him up, malt, cod-liver oil and a bowl of Horlicks at
night. She gave him lot to eat but no exercise.

James Herriot's story of an overweight dog named Tricki

  • 2.  This story has been written by James Herriot. The subject of this story is a pet dog which is spoilt by its owner. The owner indulges her dog so much with food and other comforts that the dog has become overweight and cannot even walk properly. Finally, the dog has been taken to a veterinary doctor who treats the dog without using a single medicine.  The dog is left with all other dogs so that it can play and get the much needed physical exercise. After a period of enough physical activities, the dog loses much of its fat and becomes hale and hearty.
  • 3.  Apparently, this is a simple story with simple subject. But if we try to read between the words, the story has much significance for our life as well.  You will see many kids who are overweight and spoilt because their parents just try to meet every demand of the kid. The kid develops into a couch potato which is not good for his life.
  • 4.  Tricki was a small dog and was excessively loved by his mistress, Mrs. Pumphery.  He was greedy & loved food, but no exercise.  As a result he became fat & Mrs. Pumphery believed that he became lazy because he suffered from malnutrition.  Mrs. Pumphery was a wealthy woman. She loved her dog too much.  She gave him some little extras between meals to build him up, malt, cod-liver oil and a bowl of Horlicks at night.
  • 5.  She gave him lot to eat but no exercise.  Once he became ill & she was worried & made a frantic call to Harriot who was a vet.  James already had given suggestions regarding Tricki’s balanced diet. But she never followed it.  He was a vet. He was shocked to see Tricki hugely fat, like a bloated sausage with a leg at each corner.  He advised her to cut down on the sweet things.
  • 6.  He expected call came within a few days & it happened.  He was called by Mrs. Pumphery as Tricki refused to eat.  He told her that Tricki needed immediate hospitalization for keeping under observation at his surgery for a fortnight.  There he gave him no food no medicine but plenty of water.  Gradually he mixed with other dogs & started playing with them.  He had a lot of exercises & fun at the surgery.
  • 7.  He was completely recovered & transformed into a hard muscled dog.  James Harriot treated the dog without medicine or surgery.  She was happy & filled with gratitude.  She thanked Harriot & said it was a triumph of surgery.
  • 8.  Mr. Pumphrey was a rich and emotional lady who has a cute pet called Tricky. She loved him so much that she overfed him. Tricki had put on a lot of weight which made him lethargic. When doctor Herriot saw the fat dog like a bloated sausage he was shocked. He made a plan and told Mrs. Pumphrey that Tricki needed treatment for a ailment which was possible only in hospital. The doctor knew that Mrs. Pumphrey would not be able to keep the dog on a proper diet.
  • 9.  When the greedy dog went to the hospital he had to remain hungry if he was slow to approach for food. He was given food at fixed intervals. Soon he shed off a lot of his body weight and became quite active. When Tricki was at home he was pampered by Mrs. Pumphrey. He had a luxurious life when he was served with cream cake chocolate and horlicks. But when he came to the doctor he became all right. When Mrs. Pumphrey saw her active dog she thanked the doctor and felt that it was a triumph of surgery.
