As I watch the National Geographic Wild Channel, I am totally impressed by a 74 year old Veterinarian in Northern Michigan! This man, his wife Diane, son Charles, plus their crew, all contribute to keep God's animals healthy! Dr Pol has the energy of child, the mind of a genius, also the old fashion ideals of Family first. As the Doc drives down the dusty road, in his ole' jeep, his gas tank falls off, he calls home for his other jeep, not missing a beat! As his son rolls up, they both head to a Dairy farm to deliver a calf in danger. As they run to the barn, Dr Pol pulls off his shirt, getting down to business! This is a Incredible family to watch, very captivating, also Dr. Pol , his laughter, his kindness, his knowledge encompass every emotion you may have!
