Article link: Dog airlifted from Angeles National Forest
The couple took their Labrador
Far up the rocky trail,
But on their way back down again
The dog was dragging tail.
The pooch’s paws were plenty sore;
The walk became too hard.
Too bad the dog had not been born
A nimble Saint Bernard.
A helicopter was dispatched
To bring the party home,
So Baxter could resume his walks
Where city dogs should roam.
I wonder if the rescue team,
If given half a chance,
Would take the dog and leave the pair
Back in the vast expanse.
