While memoirs aren't usually my thing, I love how Emily Carr took one really interesting period in her life and explored that in some depth. Who would have thought that Emily Carr was also a dog breeder? Her writing was engaging and your really came to understand how strongly she felt about her dogs.

It was fun to read about Emily's relationships with her dogs. I loved her sketches and all the vignettes; funny, sad, and bittersweet.

My only complaint is that the book is too short! I wanted to read more about Emily and her Bobtails.
At 96 pages, this book charms without trying to be charming. The prose is beautiful, without unnecessary adornment, caring without being sentimental, and wise in its observations about life without preaching. I am always looking out for a 'sleeper'--a book relatively undiscovered and special-- that I can give my best friends, aged aunties, young moms, children, that is not trite or trendy or filled with the obvious. The sketches by the author reveal both depth of feeling and simplicity.

A delightful little book. Emily Carr was a most amazing woman, artist, writer and dog lover. And independent in a time that it was hard for women to be so. I would have liked to have known her.
Im loving learning more about my favourite artist and my hometown!

Emily Carr (December 13, 1871 – March 2, 1945) was a Canadian artist and writer heavily inspired by the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast. One of the first painters in Canada to adopt a post-impressionist painting style, Carr did not receive widespread recognition for her work until later in her life. As she matured, the subject matter of her painting shifted from aboriginal themes ...more
