Dr. Hartfield, a veterinarian, is the daughter-in-law of Rodney Hartfield, owner of Breckenridge’s Pit Stop Bar-B-Q, where the book signing was held. Copies of the book will be available at Pit Stop, as well as on Dr. Hartfield’s website, www.doctorhartfield.com, and on Amazon.com.

The book is the first in a series about a veterinarian and the animals she treats. Her next book, “Pistol the Horse,” will be out soon. Future books will feature a goat, a cow, a dog and a cat.

“I think kids like it because it’s colorful,” Dr. Hartfield said Friday about her first book. “It’s based off of a true story. All of my books are based on true stories.”

“Rosie the Pig” is illustrated by Sarah Haug, Dr. Hartfield’s sister.

A native of Bridgeport, Texas, Dr. Hartfield lives on a ranch just outside of Cushing, Oklahoma, with her husband and eight horses, 30 cows, two bulls, 20 dogs, three cats, two goats and one pig. She is a 2016 graduate of Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences and cares for large breed animals at a clinic in Cushing.
