Rex and the City

by Lee Harrington

Villard (June 26, 2007)

272 pages, paperback $11.88

This is a book you will love if you have a dog and won’t bother to finish if you don’t. But using how a dog is treated by each member of a couple is a wonderful metaphor for their relationship. My own is below.

The Answer

My wife claims our Coon Hound is deaf,

but the dog is so focused on sniffing out

imagined prey that unless you sneak up

behind her and grab her head, nothing

else exists. For me is that paying bills,

writing stories, wondering why my kids

don’t call? No, my black and tan, fixated

friend, some of us are Jack Russell

Terriers, jumping up and down, barking

at the wind.
