520    "Beloved by her readers, special to the poet's own heart, 
       Mary Oliver's dog poems offer a special window into her 
       world. Dog songs collects some of the most cherished poems
       together with new works, offering a portrait of Oliver's 
       relationship to the companions that have accompanied her 
       daily walks, warmed her home, and inspired her work. To be
       illustrated with images of the dogs themselves, the 
       subjects will come to colorful life here. These are poems 
       of love and laughter, heartbreak and grief. In these pages
       we visit with old friends, including Oliver's well-loved 
       Percy, and meet still others. Throughout, the many dogs of
       Oliver's life emerge as fellow travelers, but also as 
       guides, spirits capable of opening our eyes to the lessons
       of the moment and the joys of nature and connection. Dog 
       songs is a testament to the power and depth of the human-
       animal exchange, from an observer of extraordinary vision"
