1. Describe the situation Father Tim faces at the beginning of Chapter 1.

Father Tim feels lonely and burned out with his current job, and doesn't feel like he is helping people. He thinks it is time for him to move on in the ministry, so he writes a letter to the bishop explaining himself. The bishop writes back and states that he would like Tim to think about leaving a while longer.

2. How does Tim come to have a black dog? What is special about the dog?

The dog starts to follow Tim around until Tim allows the dog to sleep in his garage, and then his home. The dog is special in that he cannot be trained, except that when Tim reads scripture, the dog sits still and listens. The dog is also very large - "the size of a Buick," as described by Emma.
