Sample text

Le caniche servait à chasser le canard. Pour faciliter la nage, on a commencé à le tondre d’une façon particulière et le ruban dont on ornait le dessus de la tête permettait de le repérer rapidement dans les roseaux. Ces races existaient déjà au XVIe siècle. Ces bêtes ont fini par devenir des objets de luxe fragiles, des bibelots vivants, faciles à transporter et assez petits dans certains cas pour être logés dans un manchon (10). Une dépendance totale, cultivée avec soin, et des démonstrations d’affection démesurées ont fait de ces chiens d’éternels enfants, hyperdomestiqués, d’une docilité et d’une servilité extrêmes.

Je ne pense pas que ces jeunes, dans leur état, étaient tout à fait conscients de la gravité de la situation. Je la leur ai expliquée le mieux possible et ils n’ont opposé aucune objection à ma décision. Raymond est venu m’aider en proférant une litanie d’injures et j’ai euthanasié Socrate. Il est tombé dans la paille comme une madone déchue. J’ai rangé mes affaires et je suis reparti. Quelques jours plus tard, les trois jeunes sont venus régler la note à la clinique. Ils avaient l’air piteux d’un chien battu.

Cette bête, que recouvre un excès de peau dépassant de deux à trois fois la normale et qui ressemble à « un lit mal fait », fait le bonheur des dermatologues et des ophtalmologues vétérinaires qui diagnostiquent, pour le même animal, presque toutes les maladies répertoriées dans les annales de la médecine. La peau de certaines lignées est une zone sinistrée, un désastre cutané unique en son genre, une plaie à vif incurable. Les replis de la peau obstruent la vision, frottent sur la surface de l’œil et blessent la cornée, une des parties les plus sensibles du corps.
