For all those who have loved and lost a beloved canine companion, here is a dog's life beautifully remembered.
In The Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog, famed playwright Eugene O'Neill movingly articulates the ache all dog owners feel as the end of a special dog's life approaches. His timeless elegy, written in the early 1940s about his dog, Silverdene Emblem O'Neill—known as Blemie by those who loved him—eases the pain of this sad parting with poignant reminders of the joy and happiness only a loving and loyal dog can provide. This lovely edition is illustrated by the award-winning quilt maker Adrienne Yorinks. Her 25 original hand-stitched quilts portray the life of one special Border Collie and perfectly complement the text with their mood and magic.
A contemporary classic of essay and art, The Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog is a treasure no dog owner should be without.
