At one time or another, most every one of us has said aloud that we’re going to write down all the hilarious and absurd stories about our life and publish a book. Few of us follow through on that promise.
Meet Dr. Chuck Keiser, an Inter-County Energy Cooperative member and veterinarian from Danville. His book Muddling in Muck: Reflections on 31 Years in Veterinary Practice is a delightful read. It is illustrated by close friend Dr. Colin Raitiere, director of Palliative Care at Heritage Hospice, Danville.
The book was written as a fundraiser with all proceeds going to the Boyle County Humane Society.
You do not need to be interested in the veterinary field to enjoy this book. Dr. Keiser delivers 27 humorous human interest and animal-lover stories of his life’s work in this small but powerful 64-page book.
“The stories are all true. The names have been changed to protect the innocent and the guilty. The wonderful part of these stories is that any one of them could have been told by virtually any veterinarian who practiced in the last 50 years,” says Dr. Keiser.
