To continue our multi-part series on the epic adventures of the MFA summer, we pick up with second-year poet Callie Plaxco, who spent the summer researching the origins of her recently adopted dog, Willie Nelson Plaxco. After taking a trip with Willie up to Yellowstone, Callie began to learn strange and surprising things about her canine friend. Here are some captioned photos about her miraculous trip, and at the bottom, please follow the link to a long, lovely poem inspired by her discoveries and written specifically for this blog.

What a trip, Willie! Thanks for sharing! And now with no further ado, please follow the following link to read—
