Episode 53 - Mazeppa the Wolfhound: Part One: The Story of Mother Luhki and Nana by Raymond N. Dombkiewicz

100 minutes

Somehow we're reading another Christian-leaning, dog related book with strange authorship. We really don't know how this happened again. Thanks to longtime friend of the show Elisa for recommending this one!

Content Warning: In addition to our usual barnyard language, we've got: inter-species breastfeeding and menstruation (brief mention). Apparently we were wrong about inter-species breastfeeding and it turns out it's actually fine for mammals to just do that for each other. Uh, neat?

The person listed as the author isn’t actually the author, but a compiler/editor of sorts. Yet, there's also an additional person credited as his editor AND the actual author was also assisted by one of his children, so we’ve got about 4 people responsible for this thing:

1. BG Michael “Runt” Makepeace: Man who wrote memoirs and also took notes and pieced together what he believes was an encounter with an immortal dog breeder who has an immortal dog best friend.

2. Raymond N. Dombkiewicz: Listed as the author, but actually a friend of Michael Makepeace who re-wrote the original stories/notes from Makepeace into a larger "epic."

3. Sheron Mariah Steele, PhD: Copy editor, also possibly a bond villain.

4. Abigail Rebecca Makepeace Chafee: Michael Makepeace’s daughter who added to his notes and interviewed people about the potentially immortal dog breeder and immortal dog.

The authorship question and inter-species breastfeeding is just the beginning. It gets even wackier.
