Short Synopsis
Ever By My Side is a very personal memoir told through the lens of all the pets Dr. Nick Trout has had in his life.

Full Synopsis
New York Times bestselling author Nick Trout has captivated audiences with his books that take us behind the scenes into the heartwarming—and sometimes heartrending—world of veterinary medicine. In a perfect follow-up to his first two books, he turns his lens inward and offers a funny, moving, and thoughtful, memoir about the animals he's had all his life. Nostalgic, warm, and insightful, Ever By My Side is about the power of animals to shape our lives, to teach us, and to bear witness to our struggles, triumphs, hopes, and fears.

"Listeners will laugh . . . cry . . . cheer---and be inspired to hug their dogs within an inch of their lives." ---AudioFile

"A tender tribute to the author's father." ---Kirkus

"Pet owners will be instantly captivated, empathizing and amused by Trout's stories of dog antics, feline aloofness, and the indescribable joy of sharing one's life with the animals." ---Publishers Weekly

"Trout's comic but sincere tone will appeal to pet lovers, but his willingness to share his annoyance or disappointment with the various foibles of past pets...makes this a human story."---Library Journal
