Separated from his mother, Dooms was only three or four weeks old and unable to feed or care for himself.From the time Xan could remember, Dooms was always there, a much-loved member of the family. When Xan was seven years old Dooms died, leaving Xan and his parents with a huge sense of loss. To ease their sorrow, Xan's mother, Carol, suggested they put together a scrapbook of her photos and his drawings and tell the story of Dooms. Xan spoke into a tape recorder and Carol typed the story. "How It Was with Dooms" is the result.
