Dog Stories, Prose

And Poetry




Written by: A Lover of All Animals


A dog sits waiting in the hot midday sun

Too faithful to leave

Too frightened to run.


He's been there for days with nothing to do

But sit by the road

Just waiting for you!


He can't understand why you left him that day,

He thought you were stopping to let him out to play.


He's sure you'll come back and that's why he stays

But how long can he suffer? How many more days?


His legs have grown weak,

His throat's parched and dry,

He's sick now from hunger

He falls with a sigh!


He lays down his head and he closes his eyes...

I wish you could see,


How a waiting dog dies.
