      An excellent collection. I need to read more of Mathis's work.

    • Christina Borgoyn says:

      a great sense of healing this collection does through the lyrical voice of dog.

    • jen says:

      InterestingNot the type of poetry I typically read, but the voice was compelling if often unclear and the collection together formed a cohesive story.

    • jen says:

      Some of this was interesting. Other parts were pretty strange. I liked some of them I actually didn't notice at first that the dog was speaking.

    • Leonard says:

      I read several, but not all the poems in this book. I read the rather lengthy title poem, but was not moved or very impressed.

    • AmyKBell says:

      Her poems entwine nature and her Self with pretty rigorous control and a lack of sentimentality that I found inspiring and lovely.

    • Phyllis Katz says:

      Great collection of poems
