Bobby's Dog-Days Over



Poetry, Drollery


Crime, Animal Behaviour, Government, Disease

    Written from the perspective of a policeman who expresses relief at the revocation of Richard Mayne's law on vagrant dogs. He relishes the prospect of not being the subject of 'Amusement and delight' when a dog eludes his grasp, as well as the prospect of 'No more of these ignoble scars' and hydrophobia.
