"People who let their dogs and cats have litters in order
to show their children the 'miracle of birth' should come
witness the 'miracle of death' performed in the back rooms
of animal shelters all over the country."
--Phyllis Wright, Humane Society of the US
The families dog was bought for a guard,
Chained to a post in a chilly backyard,
Housed in a shed that was airless and dark,
And every few weeks had a run in the park.
When boredom set in with no fun and no work,
One day it broke loose and went quietly berserk.
Pa couldn't fathom just why it went wild,
As it flattened his wife and then bit his child.
The police were called in to sort out the mess,
And the whole sorry tale was revealed by the press,
The Rescue Society was really annoyed,
So, the dog was rehomed--and the owners destroyed.
