Cruel Secrets of Death.

Illustration:  Bulldog Puppy.  OUR FRIEND THE DOG  By Maurice Maeterlinck.  Illustrated by Cecil Alden.  Dodd, Mead & Company: New York. 1913.

I have lost, within these last few days, a little bull-dog.

He had just completed the sixth month of his brief existence. He had no history. His intelligent eyes opened to look out upon the world, to love mankind, then closed again on the cruel secrets of death.

Puffy a Pretty Puppy!

PUFFY

About a pretty dog I have to tell, –

A Maltese dog, so curly, white, and fluffy;

His nose was pinker than a pink sea-shell,

His eyes were also pink, – his name was PUFFY.

When he was six weeks old, quite small and scared,

He came unto the house of his new Missis:

His teeth were sharp, he bit so hard,

She cried, “Oh what a charming doggie this is!”

When Puffy slept he rolled himself up tight,

And looked just like a little worsted bundle;

He used a large round stool to roll and bite,

Which on the floor his Missis used to trundle.

Puppy – A Bone As Big As Himself!

“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.

Terrible Creatures!

“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.
