"Only the dog remained loyal to him"
Jan had had his own company,
but because of the crisis it suddenly collapsed.
Jan lost everything, even his family.
A beggar, no, that was not enough for his wife.
She received a benefit and the house as well.
Jan then wore his heavy cross.
His son also lived with his ex-wife.
Only the dog remained loyal to him.
Living on the street is not such a paradise.
Jan was already wrinkling and he was already turning gray.
Yes, he sometimes got money from a passer-by
and he also sold the homeless newspaper.
That way he could eat; the dog shared.
And one day, sales were good.
It was that money that started happiness:
He bought a lottery ticket and he won!
Jan bought a house with a small garden
and a big garage next to it.
It was a beauty of a building.
Thanks to his wealth, he found a wife again.
After a year came the first daughter Marie.
Then Karel, and Wim, that was three.
For years they lived well together.
Then school time was there.
"Look, a hotel in a seaside village!"
But the problem was: dogs were not allowed.
Jan thought: that is not possible; that's just bad luck.
But his wife said, "Just get rid of that dog!"
Jan protested, but that didn't help.
He took the dog and a lot of food.
At the last moment he felt shy ...
Must I really tie him to a tree?
Jan had planted some signs with arrows.
That way the dog could be rescued soon.
But the holiday didn't bring Jan any pleasure.
He thought about the poor animal all the time.
And what kind of woman had he brought in?
No, Jan thought, I have really failed now.
I don't want this, I am going to file for divorce
and my wife can go!
But in the courtroom, Jan was shocked to see
that she had a lawyer: mr Mik.
He was notorious; he won every case.
Jan knew: now I'm really lost.
He lost everything: home, garden and money
and on top of it:
He also lost his children forever.
Jan really couldn't handle the street life anymore.
He slept in alleys, but who appeared?
Yes really, it was incredible: the dog!
But look: he limped; he was badly injured.
Jan carefully took the animal on his lap.
That night Jan slept with his dog in the gutter.
Together they fought the terrible cold.
Even now the dog remained loyal to him.
