The Gompa dogs
“… and so we sit here listening to the haunting strains of Legend of the White Stupa, paying homage to Sir Edmund. Like the mountains mists, he has passed from our sight. And it is with heartsore realization we see the mists swirling around the Gompas. Will they too fade, only a heartbeat on the icy winds … symbols of a time and place lost in antiquity?

For years Debby has been in possesion of a large number historical documents pertaining to the Gompa dogs, including Mr. D’Aoust’s drafts for several books. He died in February of 2014. Eccentric and unconventional – both Gerald and his writings below – I share them with the intention of insight. For all of Gerry’s flaws, he did indeed bring this unique group of dogs into the Western Hemisphere.
