    The Cattle-Dog's Death

    The Plains lay bare on the homeward route,
    And the march was heavy on man and brute;
    For the Spirit of Drought was on all the land,
    And the white heat danced on the glowing sand.

    The best of our cattle-dogs lagged at last,
    His strength gave out ere the plains were passed,
    And our hearts grew sad when he crept and laid
    His languid limbs in the nearest shade.

    He saved our lives in the years gone by,
    When no one dreamed of the danger nigh,
    And the treacherous blacks in the darkness crept
    On the silent camp where the drovers slept.

    ‘The dog is dying,’ a stockman said,
    As he knelt and lifted the shaggy head;
    ‘’Tis a long day’s march ere the run be near,
    ‘And he’s dying fast; shall we leave him here?’

    But the super cried, ‘There’s an answer there!’
    As he raised a tuft of the dog’s grey hair;
    And, strangely vivid, each man descried
    The old spear-mark on the shaggy hide.

    We laid a ‘bluey’ and coat across
    The camping pack of the lightest horse,
    And raised the dog to his deathbed high,
    And brought him far ’neath the burning sky.

    At the kindly touch of the stockmen rude
    His eyes grew human with gratitude;
    And though we parched in the heat that fags,
    We gave him the last of the water-bags.

    The super’s daughter we knew would chide
    If we left the dog in the desert wide;
    So we brought him far o’er the burning sand
    For a parting stroke of her small white hand.

    But long ere the station was seen ahead,
    His pain was o’er, for the dog was dead
    And the folks all knew by our looks of gloom
    ’Twas a comrade’s corpse that we carried home. read more »

    Jogging with Oscar

    When I take my dachshund jogging, boys and widows gawk
    and stop tossing balls or lopping limbs off shrubs.They call
    and point at long, pot-bellied Oscar trotting like a rocker horse,
