Greye says: The front flap of this book describes it as "a celebration of the special relationship between human and dog", however I didn't get much of a sense of that relationship in this poetry collection. Many of the poems involved the writer having conversations with one of her dogs, where she talks to the dog and gives voice to what she imagines it would say to her in return. Others discuss commonalities between the human and canine experiences. If you are a dog lover, you will have experienced that emotional connection between yourself and a dog. I don't doubt that the author has had those connections with her dogs, but it didn't translate into the poetry. I was not stirred by the simplistic structure and wording of the poems. Overall, this collection fell flat for me. kates1904 says: It's said that joy is the noblest act. If that is the case, then dogs are truly noble creatures. This is a book for dog lovers. Admittedly, these are easy poems. They don't serve to challenge one's con...ception of truth or form or beauty. They celebrate our favorite four-legged friends with a dog-like exuberance: simple and pure. They are candy: small, sweet, and easy to swallow. And while I don't question the importance of eating a heavy full course meal, it's nice to treat yourself to some candy every now and then.MoreLessShow More Show Less
