Epitaph to a Dog
by
Sir William Watson


His friends he loved. His fellest earthly foes
--Cats--
I believe he did but feign to hate.
My hand will miss the insinuated nose,
Mine eyes that tail that wagged contempt at Fate.




Inscription on the Monument of a Newfoundland Dog
by
Lord Byron

 

 Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who
possessed Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferocity,
and all the Virtues of Man,
without his Vices.
This Praise, which would be unmeaning
Flattery if inscribed over human
ashes is but a just tribute to the Memory
of Boatswain, a Dog.
