Farewell to the Dog
The blue dog was interred in Drumcliff Churchyard on 2 November, 2012. He was barely three years of age. A virus smacked him, hard, from behind - and that was that. It is for this reason that the final issue of The Bow-Wow Shop, the tenth, is smaller by comparison with the rest. How could we possible go on without our mascot and companion? This issue contains work by Matthew Sweeney, John Hartley Williams, Barry Schwabsky, Fiona Moore, Philip Morre, Jeremy Reed, Jason Heroux, Sue Hubbard and John Birtwhistle. Thank you to all our readers.
