The emaciated dog was so lonely, it sought company
by looking into a puddle. It had been there seeking
food and shelter, but had been chased away even by those
who had lapdogs. It heard steps, an old man walking slowly
bent down opened a paper bag and fed it bread crumbs.
The dog thought “apparently he thinks I'm a duck,
that's ok, I'm so hungry and lonely it will have to do.”
