Marius, Satchel, and I 003

Satchel, a ten-year old Australian shepherd, was adopted as a pup by BAWP TCs Kimberley Gilles (’87) and her husband Tom Dunlap (’93).  Satchel wrote his human step-siblings when they were at college, letters that Tom, a writer himself, teacher and tutor, has collected and transcribed.  Should you think that a dog’s prose is childish, consider how well you would render his sophisticated sense of smell.
