The Tale of Old Dog Spot Author: Arthur Scott Bailey

THE TALE OF OLD DOG SPOT I ALMOST TWINS Nobody ever spoke of old Spot’s master as “old Johnnie Green.” Yet the two—boy and dog—were almost exactly the same age.

“MURPHY” A MESSAGE TO DOG-LOVERS 1 I Yes. He was born in the first week of June, in the year 1906. Quite a short while ago, as you see—that is, as we men count time—but long enough, just as a child’s life is occasionally long enough, to affect the lives—ay, more, the characters—of some who […]

FURTHER ADVENTURES OF LAD by ALBERT PAYSON TERHUNE

FOREWORD Sunnybank Lad won a million friends through my book, “LAD: A DOG”; and through the Lad-anecdotes in “Buff: A Collie.” These books themselves were in no sense great.

Finn The Wolfhound Author: A. J. Dawson

CHAPTER I THE MOTHER OF HEROES For a man whose thirtieth year was still not far behind him, the man’s face was over careworn. It suggested that he felt life’s difficulties more keenly than a man should at that age. But it may have been that this was a necessary part of the keenness with […]
