My Grandfather, My Grandmother and Doggie
Written & Illustrated by Mah’koos (Micheal) Merrier
Things were different growing up in Northern Alberta in the 1950s. There was wood to chop if you wanted to stay warm and cook, ducks to hunt if you wanted to eat, and kerosene to fetch if you wished to have light. No television or computers. No phones. But there was also fun and lots of love. So Moshom, Nokum and Doggie raised Little Cub to become Mah’koos to fulfill his calling.
