This short episode is told through the eyes of a young boy growing up in rural New Zealand. For the Love of Dickie will easily transport the reader back in time to their youth and pull at the heart strings of those of us who clearly remember our desire to own a puppy. The isolation of living on a farm where few people visit and the belief systems we retain form our childhood also evokes heavy sentiment. This is a pungent look at a young Father who dares to reflect back in time to when he was a boy and how his decisions of today are influences by happenings of so long ago.
