The Hundefraulein Papers: Poems

Taking their rare tone from an unusual occupation, these poems explore the author's post as a dog sitter during a five-year period in Sambro Head, Nova Scotia. Inspired by the countless English setters the poet looked after, the ocean-side doghouse she maintained, and the many and varied houseguests of her employer, this collection is by turns extravagant, intense, and celebratory. Combining the concepts of dog and nanny in its wistful title, this anthology brings together a variety of whimsical elements, reflecting on a unique and memorable experience on the Canadian shore.
