Outsider, Breck Young
This eclectic issue of The Mind’s Eye explores the tangible and symbolic bonds that people have with dogs. Submissions include poetry, fiction, science fiction, essay musings, artistic works, photojournalism and more formal academic research/papers.
The loss of one’s beloved dog companion is so psychically traumatic that many dog owners swear they will never again have a dog because the hurt is just too great. And yet, many do because dogs teach us so much about our own selves and the world in which we live. This has been the case for thousands of years. In this issue of The Mind’s Eye, we examine these bonds from a variety of perspectives.
