Cruel Secrets of Death.

I have lost, within these last few days, a little bull-dog.

He had just completed the sixth month of his brief existence. He had no history. His intelligent eyes opened to look out upon the world, to love mankind, then closed again on the cruel secrets of death.

    1. Perhaps it was the loss of the dog that came as a cruel experience for the author – easy to get confused by grief. I would hate to think my dogs faced anything cruel after death – they deserved nothing less than ecstasy.
