Der Hund mit dem gelben Herzen

Sitting in Grandpa Schulte’s dark shed are a stray dog and two children, Prinz Neumann and Lotta. The children ask the dog what his name is and where he comes from. The dog begins to tell them his story, for he knows that if he tells it he’ll get chicken skin to eat and a place to sleep in the shed. Dogs who tell stories even get petted – and what more could a stray dog want? So he tells the story of the great inventor G. Ott and his best friend Lobkowitz. It’s the story of the invention of the world, which is also the story of the rupture of the greatest friendship of all time. It’s also the story of the lost garden from which he himself ran away in order to find Lobkowitz and bring him back at last to G. Ott.
