WINTER TALE - a true story

A true story

abandoned pit bull
his owners have moved away
just an empty house
he’s been left outside to freeze
sits and stares in disbelief

the dog doesn’t know
whether to whine or to bark
decided to bark
he would summon his master
and he loudly pleads for hours

some men come at last
they are from the pet control
neighbors have complained
oh pray he’ll be adopted
not unjustly put to sleep

Dave Austin

    It is beyond my comprehension how some people can be so cruel to animals. A nicely written Tanka, Dave, although it is such a sad story. T.J

    I do wonder at the 'madness' of humans as I see it, let me give a different angle for a moment the cartoon character Sylvester the cat, tried his hardest to get Tweety.' so he was bashed, and labelled a bad ole cat.' but that's his 'job description' why do people want un-normal traits from animals, and as mentioned above why get a dog and not have time for it?

    When we see people abandoning babies in large numbers in eastern countries, this becomes understandable and forgivable.

    Very sad.. Why do people have animals if they cannot look after them..

    I don't like pitbulls, however this is sad..... I was in love with one years, years ago... I did not abandon him. I had to give him away... I've seen what they can do... but they are also the most loyal dogs ever... I feel bad for this pit bull. I too hope he will be adopted. Praying God he will..maybe you can call In family members to help him.... hugs... Happy May 1st... Linda
