'Calling the Collie' - A Poem for Ne'er-Do-Well Dogs

Ted didn't mind inspiring this Christmas card, for Christmas just gone ... 

... though he thinks 2014's card is verging on defamation  ... 

... and as for this poem by the iniquitous Colin Brown, well, it's downright libellous!

'Calling the Collie' is from 'Inking Bitterns' - a book of poems and pictures for wild places, illustrated by Dru Marland - which is published in association with Poetry Can and available from Gert Macky books and good independent bookshops - in Bristol, this means Durdham Down Bookshop, Standfords, and Foyles, price £5.
