I am reading W. Trevor shortstory on a blind piano tuner. Below is a description of his wife since he has no vision.
"Bat Conlon had the forehead of the Merricks’ retriever, which was stroked every time the Merricks’ Broadwood was attended to"
I guess "retriever" means "dog" ? If so what is action when "Dog Stroke"? Or Retriever is a part inside a piano. It is because Broadwood is piano manufacturer.
Please could someone answer. Thanks!
If Bat Conlon is the blind piano tuner, this is a description (of Bat) by his wife; it's not a description of his wife.
I'm not sure if it was Bat's forehead or the retriever which was stroked though.
