Old Toffer's Book of Consequential Dogs by Christopher Reid

I've rounded up a rowdy assembly Of my own Consequential Dogs
As counterparts to Eliot's mogs.
Mine are a rough and ready bunch: You wouldn't take them out to lunch…
But if they strike you as friendly, funny, Full of bounce and fond of a romp,
Forgetful of poetic pomp, I trust you'll take them as you find them
And, at the very least, not mind them.

Meet Dobson the Dog Detective, Flo the Philosophical Foxhound, and Frazzlesprat, a dog who would really rather be a cat and a host of other humorous hounds.

First published in 1939, T. S. Eliot's best-selling, much-loved collection of practical cat poems, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, has become one of the most successful poetry collections in the world.

Written by award-winning poet – and like Eliot himself a fellow former editor of Faber and Faber - Old Toffer's Book of Consequential Dogs is the first companion volume to Eliot’s original volume. Originally conceived by Eliot himself, Old Toffer's Book of Consequential Dogs includes a selection of paired poems about all manner of memorable ‘pollicles’ (Eliot’s companion name to his ‘jellicle’ cats) that are as witty, varied and exquisitely compiled as Eliot's cats.
