"Unselfishly, unto the end!"

Found this poem in a book, published in 1915 titled "dogs of all nations".The poem was written by the famous Sled dog Kennel owner Esther Birdshall Darling- from the famous Allan-Darling Kennel.
Sometimes when life has gone wrong with you,
And the world seems a dreary place.
Has your dog ever silently crept to your feet,
His yearning eyes turned to your face-
Has he made you feel that he understands,
And all that he asks of you,
Is to share your lot, be it good or ill,
With a chance to be loyal and true?
Are you a branded failure? He does not know-
A sinner? He does not care-
You’re Master to him- that’s all that counts-
A word and his day is fair.
Your birth and your station are nothing to him;
A palace and Hut are the same;
And his love is yours in honour and peace,
As it’s yours through disaster and shame.
Though others forget and pass you by,
He is ever your faithful friend.-
Esther birdshall Darling
Ready to give you the best that is his,
Unselfishly, unto the End.
