The book is told from the standpoint of a loyal household pet, a dog . The story begins with a description of the dog's life as a puppy and her separation from her mother, which to her was inexplicable.
Gut wrenching. We are but a part of nature and not above it.
I loved it!!!!!!

I love this book it was my favorite and I finished it in a couple of hours not to mention it's an awesome book I didn't stop until the book was finished because of how awesome this book is.
A sad tale
From what I understand, Twain was an outspoken opponent of vivisection, or doing painful medical experiments upon live animals. He gets this message across in a powerful way in this short story.

I mean who is that cruel
A glimpse that makes you think.
I remember reading somewhere that the book Black Beauty showed how many horses were being mistreated. I think that purpose might be here too. Many of us who have animals can't imagine them being mistreated but that doesn't mean that every animal has a good life now, or had a good life back then. A sad read that makes you think.
Short but impressive.

Poignant. A little heart breaking. Food for thought!
Great truth! Only a human would be so conceited to think they are above all other living things. The irony will be when they destroy everything including themselves.
