“Ethel’s Puppy”

Now, what do you think of Cousin Ethel’s little foxterrier. From the very moment that his eyes opened and he could waddle about, he was in trouble, and that has continued ever since. His name is Scamp, which suits him very well, and he is four months old next Thursday.

Last Monday he distinguished himself by stealing a bone nearly as big as himself. Cook had something to say to this, and Scamp still feels very sore, but he is friendly with Cook all the same: he thinks it best to keep in with her.

“John, the Bull-Dog Puppy.”

John belongs to my brother. He is not beautiful but is kind-hearted and good-tempered. My brother says bull-dogs are not half so bad as they look, which I think is a good thing, for some of them look terrible creatures, and I always feel inclined to cross over the way when I see one coming.

Jim, the Foxterrier.  “Tubbing Time.”

Jim is very young. He belongs to the coachman’s son. He is a careless dog and never looks where he is going. If there is a mud puddle about, he is sure to fall into it. If there is a sack of coal in the yard, Jim is sure to rub against it, so Jim is usually very dirty, and as we won’t let him mix with the other dogs unless he is clean, he has to be washed every other day, which makes him very sorrowful.

Beppo – Owner Likes Poodle’s Tricks But Not His Temperament!

“Beppo, the Poodle.”

Now I come to a very remarkable dog, and that is Beppo, the French Poodle. I could write a whole book about Beppo.

Do you know he has to go to a dog barber to be shaved, and this cost quite a lot of money. Poodles, when they are not shaved, have long hair all over their bodies that nearly touches the ground.

Beppo is wonderfully clever. He will stand on his head when he is told; he will also pretend to be dead, and if the piano is played to him he will dance round the room on his hind legs, turning round all the time as if he were waltzing.

Beppo will jump through a hoop, and can do this backwards although it is very difficult. When he has finished his tricks, he expects a lump of sugar as a reward.

I am sorry to say he is not a good-tempered dog, and none of the other dogs like him, which is a great trouble, for there is always the danger of a fight. For this reason I believe Beppo is going to leave us shortly.
