Michael Gawenda is one of Australia's best-known journalists and writers. Rocky is his small furry dog of indeterminate breeding, a mutt in other words. Rocky and Gawenda have been in a relationship for more than two years, since Rocky was eight weeks old and Gawenda just a bit older than that. They are best friends who are engaged in a conversation about dogs and love and memory and the meaning of work and the passing of time. Their relationship has matured in some unexpected ways. Rocky taught Gawenda how good it is to live in the moment. It is not clear what Gawenda has taught Rocky except that human beings can be moody and capricious and lost in their own thoughts. This record of their relationship is funny, joyous, sad at times, and full of delightful surprises. It is a celebration of the love that developed between a dog and his human friend.
