Patron Saint of Lost Dogs

Nick Trout, a veterinarian, writes a delightful story for pet-lovers.  Estranged from his father, the vet pathologist Dr. Mills, returns to his hometown after a fourteen year absence.  His father's much beloved veterinary practice, which he has left his son, is now debt-ridden and about to be taken over by the bank.  Dr. Mills had hoped to sell the business and flee back to his southern retreat, ignoring the past and its memories. Now he’s forced to either give up the business or make an effort to see patients in order to keep it at least temporarily afloat.  That might involve getting too close for comfort.
