On the surface, Fetch is the simple story of an old man taking his old dog out to play one last time. It was motivated by the unexpected death of Pope’s dog, Rusty. “I was really blind-sided,” Pope says. “I guess the grief that came with his passing was the flip side of how much I loved the little fellow. Like many artists, the way I deal with high emotion is to make art.” The book has touched a sympathetic chord with people who have lost a beloved pet. It is also receiving an enthusiastic response from veterinarians around the country.
Told in striking black and white etching with a touch of red, This 48 page wordless story follows a man and his dog as they go out to play for the final time. What happens next is a surprise and a delight. Fetch… a story with no words that you will want to read again and again and share with those you love and those whose hearts have been touched by the love dogs so freely give.
