— Get out! And say thank you, not put to sleep! the car door slammed shut, the car sped off into the distance.
On the side of the highway left the dog. In the twilight he seemed large, big-boned — in fact, it was just a five month old puppy Central Asian shepherd. The kid gave chase, but his strength was too little to catch up with the car.
Hardly rearranging clumsy paws, panting dog walked slowly along the highway. Where to go? Where is the house? Master? Not a soul around on a deserted road only occasionally flying machine, blinding the pup lights... headlights Darkened. The short winter day was coming to an end. The kid sat on the curb, howled, cried...
He was crying, like crying all the abandoned little children — that no one in the whole world, loves it and can not wait. His world collapsed... Just a couple of days ago, he lived in a warm apartment, with the mother and incredibly loved man. The puppy was lucky – he got the kind host intended more than what he was talking about the dog-mom when he was very young: The Creator sent us to Earth to protect the peace and life of man, to love unselfishly and faithfully. They say that God looks at people through the eyes of dogs...
Mom, t EPLA and affectionate, kind and favorite! Sorry that I can't stay little and extend a happy childhood for the whole life... But puppies grow up and the breakup is inevitable.
When appeared on the threshold of its future owner, the kid knew he was coming for him! Happily wagging little stump of a tail began to meet.
— Well, Hello, my dog! – smiled man and the puppy, open mouth, pink tongue tumbled, tried to smile back, happy to set up tummy for poceluj.
– Great kid! How I dreamed about you! Their life together was filled with gentle, Sunny, warm with happiness. Smell, voice, smile and laughter of the owner will remain forever in the memory of the dog, as well as habits, ubitye games, affectionate epithets...
You're such a good boy! — said the master, touched by the puppy antics.
The hours passed, the dog grew rapidly, and four months of age his height was almost fifty centimeters...
In the spring we will go to the exhibition of the young — it is necessary to show everyone what we are beautiful! — comb your pet, and in the summer go to the country!
The days dragged on in painful expectation of the coming of the beloved man from work. Puppy for a long time staring out the window, and then fell asleep on the rug next to the bed with his nose in master's Slippers. Feeling the smell of the loved one, kid does not feel lonely.
But once the owner returned. Didn't come the next day. The puppy howled in anguish, and grief, for he knew not he ever see a native face. The evening of the next day people came — relatives with whom the boy met only once.
— It is necessary to decide where the dog put the man busily scanned the room – no need... funerals, funerals....
— Now straight and decide! — hooking the leash to the collar of the puppy replied her husband.
The baby rested, slipped belly on the floor ... but he forcibly dragged out of the house, pushed into the car, drove into the woods. And now, he's alone, on a deserted road, far away from human habitation. Fatigue took its toll — the puppy lay down on the side. Large snowflakes were falling on his skin, and gradually it turned into snow. Under the snow blanket was cozy, kid calmed down a bit, dozed off.
And in the dream, like last outing, he dived into the snow, bury the muzzle in the clean snow, and then ran towards the man, jumped on his chest, trying to kiss the dear face, to lick the palm of the hand.
— Wake up, can't sleep, freeze, get up! — he heard suddenly the voice of the master and abruptly woke up.
Reeling from hunger and fatigue, the dog went without sleep for two days, until he fell, exhausted, next to someone's gate. Woke up in a strange barn. Neck heavy, short chain...
So, at the very tender age, in spite of his desire, he was identified to the guards of a private house in the village. People picked up the puppy, wanted to have a vicious dog. And, in order to instill in him the aggression, beaten, not fed for days. He dreamed about the games and caresses, which already had time to learn...
He itched his teeth and nibbled Board enclosure he was severely punished. But still the dog is not able to turn into a wild beast because he knew: in the world between a man and a dog there is love and friendship.
And only loved ones he was ready to serve faithfully, selflessly. Soon, the new owners got rid of him, as "the": put on a "service" — to protect trade database. Day and night he sat on a short chain, angrily barked at the visitors, demonstrating their willingness to tear to pieces all the thieves and bandits.
In any weather under the hot sun, pouring rain, hurricane winds. Autumn nights froze the skin to the puddle, which had to sleep. He was soaked and fell apart a collar, but no one wanted to buy a new one. The neck just wrapped a heavy chain, made her the noose. It often forgot to feed, and when the base was closed for the weekend, had to starve for several days.
On hot days, suffering from thirst — the bowl was seldom filled with water...But all this dog could be forgiven if at least once, some of the people whose property he was guarding, caressed him
But in almost every, passing by, he saw a man whose life's goal was only money. People are not walking calculators, with the soul that is closed to love.
A few years Alabai was a prisoner on a chain guarding the entrance. Ten steps one way, ten the other... Days stretched endless, joyless succession. The chain has gradually grown into the neck, choked, and nobody came to weaken his loud bark, became more and more hoarse.
When happy, enthusiastic puppy turned into a sluggish and indifferent to everything, the dog, he probably would have died from choking on the chain noose, if one has not appeared on the new employee.He was sweeping the yard, and often looked at the dog.
— Good boy! – appreciated his janitor. Hearing familiar words, the dog raised his head.
— In my country there was a wolfhound, told the janitor that helped the flock to graze. Died, and the flock is no more. Get it, ' he drawled dog sandwich — you were skinny, some...
Since that day, Alabai began to Wake up your zest for life. The worker appeared at the base every day — sometimes several days absent, and then life again seemed to dog the boring, bleak.
The attention of the janitor was the only light and warmth, illuminating its painful, joyless, hateful life. One day, near the entrance to the base, Alabai noticed watching him, and immediately, instinctively sensed danger.
If most people were to him indifferent, that is feared and hated... in the Morning the stranger appeared again, approached the janitor.
— Give it to the dog, he handed the bag with food.
Why? the janitor recoiled.
— You will ask questions — how long will not live!
The janitor hesitantly approached the dog, put a piece of sausage, looked in the eye. The dog sniffed and did not eat...
— It's full, then eat, taking in hands a broom, a janitor walked away.
— Well, I'll wait, — whispered the man and tried to approach the dog. As soon as he took a step forward, the dog growled menacingly.
, Shaitan! — with a cry rushed the stranger.
The janitor got stuck at work late. And when it became dark, went to alabay:
— Poison want your death useful to someone, I understand why... the Man will say he died, they say, buried! Just go away!
The janitor unhook the carabiner, and was horrified — chain rooted in the dog's neck. Peel did not dare — he just snipped the chain cutters.
— Get out of here! Go! Run!
And Alabai realized... Slowly fingering paws, the dog wandered along the route. A few years of his life on a leash, he almost forgot how to walk, was tired, went. He again went on the road a few years ago, a puppy, but now, it was already a large, handsome dog. And, even though not well-groomed, matted, dirty hair, and proud bearing of a giant would have admired.
But the people in fear, shied away from him. Food he found near a roadside cafe in the bushes and urns. Sleep anywhere – where would find of his immense fatigue. Flew past the car.
Once near slowed down a big, black jeep. Shots rang out. The dog yelped, fell into a ditch, and the car sped on under the joyful laughter of men. The bullet only grazed his leg, but blood was much...
Sitting in the bushes, the dog long to lick their wounds.For what? He did not know that man is the only intelligent animal that kills for pleasure.
The wound became inflamed, the dog barely relied on the paw, limping, he was shivering, and very sleepy.
He walked for many days, where and why, I did not know, walked aimlessly about, suffering from loneliness and often reminisced of his master, mother... How can he once again wanted to cuddle up to her warm body, warm as a child, feeling safe.
— Surely my master was the only kind person in the world?
— he cried in my sleep, — no ... there was a janitor, now there is only darkness ...
Sleep was interrupted by a sharp pain: leaning people tried to cut the dog's throat. But, ingrown chain saved a dog's life: a knife, sliding down the iron, struck in the shoulder. Alabai sharply jumped up, threw off the killer, grinned menacingly, and the killer ran away.
We should call the cops! Rabid dog at a gas station! Rushed at me, the beast is huge! – he flew into a roadside shop.
— Bitten! waving hands in the blood of the Central Asian shepherd.
— Call the police!
Mad? Close the door! Nobody is to leave! Cause outfit! – ordered guard.
The dog, limping and leaving bloody footprints wherever he moved along the side of the road, every moment he weakened. With the last forces left the desire to live, and only in the eyes — dumb question: for what?If indeed God looks at people through the eyes of dogs — why does this world still exist?
Somewhere in the distance a police siren roared. And the dog decided not to resist fate. Fifty meters from the gas station, went to the sidelines:
— More can't – finish! And when the next car stopped, the people went out, the dog prepared for the worst, he closed his eyes.
— What about him? – he heard a female voice — resting or was hit by a car? The woman bent down and... suddenly, patted his big, plush head. The dog, surprised opened his eyes.
How many years he did not see human affection! Before him stood a young, fragile, fearless woman.
— Allowed to see what's wrong with you? You're a good boy?
– It is necessary to go urgently to the clinic or you will die from blood loss! Come with me, baby!
And the giant trust at once: up, trembling weakness of the legs, went to the car. Forces barely had enough to climb into the back seat.
— Good boy, you will live!
– sentenced woman helping him get in the car.
The dog carefully wrapped a woolen blanket, and he immediately fell into a comfortable, deep sleep — even the siren of a police car raced past, are unable to Wake him up. published
