The Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 18 : March 15, 1883 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 18: March 15, 1883 We have now done with the enumeration of the small members of the large family, and come, in conclusion, to the member which inspires the most terror in, and receives the greatest respect from the children of the neighborhood. He is a large, lean-bodied dog, which, when not in active service, or when not employed. In the harmless recreation of scratching himself, gives vent, from an old basket in the corner where he sleeps, to a prolonged, asthmatic snore. This worthy, with his harness, cost his owner about four dollars originally, since which time a like amount has been paid for his license, and a few days ago a three dollar fine was imposed and had to be paid, incurred through his getting into the street without his muzzle on. After this introduction we are on speaking terms with the whole household, and can proceed with our inquiries and observations. We will, by virtue of intimate acquaintance, accompany the father of the family on one of his journeys, and notice what he busies himself about, and what are the wares he deals in. Six o'clock in the morning is the hour for starting, pretty early and pretty cold, it is true, in winter weather, but our friend is industrious, and all the year round commences operations as soon as it is light enough to see.
