Duke’s Better Life By Nina Caldwell Age 10 Duke was a dog In pitiful condition Tried to smile Nobody even looked One mistake Cute dogs on both sides Beat up, rough breed Tender sweet heart Nobody noticed Until one day One rainy day They came Two people That loved him as their own One even cried He knew they love HIM Now the cute dogs Were passed by That pitiful, beat up Duke was finally loved To Duke, this is him, This is how I first saw him. *Duke was adopted on Sunday, May 23rd. Duke suffered multiple wounds from being attacked by another dog. Animal control brought him in after having been to the vet for treatment. He is a wonderful, friendly and handsome boy.
