Toby, Mr. Punch’s Dog.

This also is not one of our dogs. He belongs to a Punch and Judy man, but we made his acquaintance last summer at the seaside. Pat and he became very friendly, so we saw more of Toby than we should have done otherwise.

Toby was a sad dog. He always looked unhappy, which was rather against him in his profession, for it was his business to amuse people. At the same time he worked hard, and bit Mr. Punch’s nose at the right moment, and after that he collected money in a little tin which he held in his mouth, and he never forgot to wag his tail by way of saying “thank you.”

He was still more sad when we were leaving, but we hope to see him next summer, so as to cheer him up a little. Needless to say, we never hear from him; after all, he is not the same class as our dogs.

Rats Are Medicine!

Better Again.

It’s all right, I am happy to say. We had not to send for the dog-doctor after all. Bob is better, indeed he is quite well, somebody called out “Rats,” and up he jumped, and flew out of his kennel, and was off with Jim, the fox terrier on a rat hunt. My brother says he was shamming. Perhaps you don’t know what that is, it means that he was pretending to be ill, but I don’t think so myself, I believe that the very name of rats is like a medicine to Bob, and does him good.

A Very Superior Dog!

“Dash, the Dachshund.”

This is not our dog, he belongs to a friend of ours and often comes to see us. He is quite at home at our place and is very friendly with our dogs.

Dash is a very polite and gentlemanly creature, his coat is sleek and shiny and is always beautifully clean, and he hates the wet and mud, and is most careful where he walks. Altogether he is a very superior dog.

“The St. Bernard’s Visitors.”

Rex is what you might call a noble dog. He is very good natured, he looks after the weak, . .  Rex allows the fowls to feed out of his dish, and they are not a bit afraid of him.

Then this big dog will let our baby ride on his back, you have to hold her on, you know, or she would tumble off, and that would never do.

Rex can be cross if he likes, and when tramps come into our garden, he barks and growls, so that they walk off in very quick time.

Collie From Scotland!

“Scott, the Collie.”

 Now we come to a very different sort of dog. Scott came from Scotland last January, and is a handsome, princely dog. He comes of a very good family and has a pedigree a yard long, which means that he can tell you who his ancestors were for years and years.

Although he is very proud he is not above making himself useful, and in the picture you see him carrying a basket of apples. Indeed, he is very fond of carrying something, when out for a walk, such as a stick or an umbrella.
