Where to begin? I’ve been fortunate to write about hunting and hunting dogs as a columnist for Contemporary Wingshooter (at the same time that I was doing a column on animals for Tricycle: The Buddhist Review!) for a long time. Colter: The True Story of the Best Dog I Ever Had, and Brown Dog of the Yaak: Essays on Art and Activism, are pretty dogcentric. I wrote a long poem for Amy Hempel’s anthology, Unleashed, and have published a fair bit in Bark Magazine. My breed of choice is the indomitable and irrepressible German shorthaired pointer, and a story in Field & Stream this spring (2013) details the good fortune by which I came to this particular dog.
