Reference:
Cove: Sense 2: “nook in cliff: a small semicircular recessed valley in the side of a hill or cliff” – taken from Encarta Premium 2009: Encarta Dictionaries

 

Notes:
The author, not a native speaker of English and not quite familiar with the word “cove,” had to research it in her dictionary. Please pardon her stupidity? You could ignore the reference above. But indeed, she planned to use that sense of the word instead of one that signifies a small bay on the shore of a sea or lake. She might also continue the story later, if enough people are interested in it and she has both the muse and inclination (and time) to write.
The story is again inspired by how Philosopher at Large depicted the relationship between Beren, Lúthien and Huan in her own works, sprinkled with the author’s own imagination. Thus Huan in this story is the worldly incarnation of a Maia who has chosen to inhabit an earthly body instead of living as a spirit or in a forsakeable body like Melian, Ossë, Uinen, Olórin (in the Year of Trees), or Arien (before she steers the Sun). His speech between the quotation marks is not to be taken literally, however. He is still a dog, and the words are the author’s best interpretation of all  the noises he makes.
The difference in seasons between the two worlds is deliberate, by the way, and the author would like to leave the nature of the world-shifting means to the guesses of her readers.
