Buddy was taken to the vet because he was unwell. The little boy had no idea what a vet did and his mommy explained to him that a vet was an animal doctor. Buddy slept all way to the vet's office. When they reached the vet's office there were many other dogs waiting there and Buddy wanted to play with them. The vet weighed Buddy, looked in his ears and mouth, and listened to his heart. The vet said Buddy was fine but he needed to be more active, play more, and run more with other dogs. While they were leaving, the vet gave Buddy a treat. On their way back home, the little boy's mother took him to a rescue center for dogs so that they could get a playmate for Buddy. The little boy was extremely happy because he got a new dog for Buddy and him to play with.

Our Dog Buddy and His Visit to the Vet by Colleen Baxter Sullivan is an adorable story and is a real treat for all dog lovers. Children are introduced to the concept of the vet, an animal doctor, in an interesting way that makes it easy to understand. Rachel Flannery brings the author's words and the characters in the story to life and makes them palpable to readers. The sentence structures are simple and easy for young readers to understand, and the plot and the characters are real and relatable. The story is a good experience for kids and can be used for storytelling sessions by parents and tutors to discuss topics children enjoy and give them useful information.
