I thought more often about the fact,
why dogs have such a short life,
and came to the conclusion, 
that this occurs from compassion with the human race;

if we lose a dog after ten or twelve years,
how large would be the pain,
if they would live twice as long ?

The rich man's guardian,
the poor man's friend,
with his master always faithful united.
