Persephone Update 13
The first Persephone I read and reviewed this week was Flush by Virginia Woolf, which Danielle of Leaning Towards the Sun has also read and reviewed. The second title I read was A London Child of the 1870s and you can read my thoughts here and compare with Christy's opinion.
Danielle's photograph of her golden cocker spaniel, Tucker, reminded me that during the scene where Flush is unceremoniously shorn of his full coat (a symbol of his pedigree breeding) to rid him of an infestation of fleas, I thought of my parents' springer spaniel, Laddie. As a recent measure to assuage his suffering in the heat, Laddie had a drastic hair cut and is photographed below looking accusatory; I thought I would share.
