In early June, David and I went down to Cranborne Dorset to meet up with Luke Gamble and chat with him about his latest book The Vet:The Big Wild World. We met him in his tiny surgery Pilgrims where he first struck out on his own - we also met up with some of the WVS gang - Chris, James and Linda. Both Chris and James and one other person were squeezed into a back room because Linda was squashed in the front into the most amazing oldie worldy bookshop that I could have spent hours in just perusing the books there! However we were there to do an interview!!
Luke took us to the back of the surgery to a very large shed where WVS and Pet Air started but which now housed medical donations, to be sent around the world to vets and charities working with the local people helping and educating them in look ing after their animals.
During our conversation (with input from Angel, Luke's 7 month old ridgeback puppy) I came to realise that Luke is somewhat a visionary about animal care and how to involve people. He has an ocean full of enthusiasm and tremendous determination.
