Chapter Summary

Visitations are another name for coincidences in dog memoirs. Jon Katz is the author of a series of animal memoirs and his recently published Dog Days continues the story of how he and his wife established Bedlam Farm in upper New York and continue to suffer through the joys and sorrows of rural life. Dog memoirs constitute one of the primary narratives of the drama of spiritual life in the United States today. Mark Doty's Dog Years is an extremely accomplished dog memoir. Doty decides to adapt Beau, a Golden Retriever, as a companion to his dying partner, Wally. The memoir functions not only as the owner's autobiography. In addition, it effectively becomes the dog's biography.
