Grant Peeples Reads Old House Dog’s Grave Poem

grantpeeplesatdixieI was cruising through Facebook this morning and a little blip on the right side of the screen that shows new posts caught my eye.

It was Grant Peeples sharing a reading of Robinson Jeffers’ 1941 poem “The House Dog’s Grave (Haig, an English bulldog)” done as a YouTube video. The accompanying collage of photos of dogs that have passed adds the gut punch to Grant’s solemn reading.

Although Jeffers is mostly associated with Western life, this is as Southern a poem as you can get.

Good Stuff! Enjoy.
