It was originally published on 1 October in the French newspaper Le Gaulois. Lefevre, a rich, miserly widow has a dozen onions stolen from her garden. Following the advice of a neighbor, she decides to buy a small dog.
The baker brings her a dog named Pierrot. He would always bark because he is hungry. She refuses to pay eight francs for the animal and decides to throw Pierrot into a Denehole alternatively Dene hole or Dene-hole is an underground structure consisting of a number of small chalk caves entered by a vertical shaft, which is the well in which all dogs from the area end up.
They slowly starve to death and eat those that have already died. She throws Pierrot in the well, but when she hears the barking of the dog, it tears her heart. The following nights she sees Pierrot in her dreams, but she keeps refusing to pay the tax. To appease her guilty conscience, she goes every day beside the hole to throw Pierrot some bread.
Then she hears a second dog in the well. She refuses to feed another dog because it was bigger and stronger. She leaves Pierrot to die.
