This is a rather pretty little hardback. Just 88 pages. It tells the story of two children caught in a snow drift, and taken in by a dog.

I have always liked Irish Wolfhounds – long legged and full of character. This relates the story of the poet, and his relationship with his dog, and the dog’s relationship with the children. Its about love. How someone can be with us, even when they are gone. This is a poignant little volume. It contains a small amount of poetry and is a moving story.

At the moment the book is a reflection of my life, in away. I know that someone I cared about and lived alongside and with me for many years is no longer here. I find, however, that she is also with me, as the poet is with the dog, in this small volume.

Its a rather special.
