The Family Dog


The family's dog was bought to 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 whole sorry tale was revealed in the press. The Rescue Society was really annoyed. So, the dog was re-homed, and the owners destroyed.
