Overview

This is a collection of more than forty unforgettable essays, poems, and short pieces of writers' remembrances of their faithful dogs. Each piece is a loving tribute to man's best friend. Among them, E. B. White paints an eloquent and humorous portrait of his dachshund in the essay "Bedfellows," while John Updike weeps for his family's young friend in his poem "Dog's Death." James Thurber's three contributions joyously praise dogdom, and Daniel Pinkwater releases his malamute, Albert, into sleep. Great poets such as Lord Byron, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Herrick, and William Wordsworth immortalize their dogs in verse, and "Blemie" O'Neill, Eugene's dog, serves his last will and testament. Each selection conveys the faith and companionship that has made the master and dog relationship legendary. Old Dogs Remembered is not a collection of laments for lost pets, but a celebration rich with emotion, sentiment, and humor.
