The media is abuzz with stories about dogs saving abandoned babies, in different countries as far as Kenya, Brazil, Thailand and India. There are instances of fake stories, too. But the spirit of these four-legged angels is 100% genuine. The so-called ferocious, feared stray dogs respect life.
Here is a nonet dedicated to the venerable souls —
Abandoned with cold-blooded apathy, on the striped road crossing
the girl who had turned blue in the cold
revealed a core of steel with her cries,
attracting attention of dogs with a soul.
They cried for help till
able hands reached out
to rescue her.
