A Starving Dog; The Dog's Book of Virtues; Puppy Love; Boys, Dogs and Mothers; Dog Heaven

Dedicated to all the wonderful animals that have enriched and enlivened our time on earth. Each movement is set to a text that portrays a smorgasbord of ideas: the essence of dogs, their role in our lives, comparisons to people, and our passion for them. May be performed a variety of ways, perhaps with spoken words and an additional flute playing the soprano part.
