Abandoned Dog

Written by: Robert William Service | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 They dumped it on the lonely road,
 Then like a streak they sped;
And as along the way I strode
 I thought that it was dead:
And then I saw that yelping pup
 Rise, race to catch them up.
You know how silly wee dogs are.
It thought they were in fun.
Trying to overtake their car I saw it run and run: But as they faster, faster went, It stumbled, sore and spent.
I found it prone upon the way; Of life was little token.
As limply in the dust it lay I thought its heart was broken: Then one dim eye it opened and It sought to like my hand.
Of course I took it gently up And brought it to my wife Who loves all dogs, and now that pup Shares in our happy life: Yet how I curse the bastards who Its good luck never knew!
