HOUND DOG IS ABLE TO SIT
. ' UP
Well, well: I nearly forgot to
tell you where Hound Dog was
,hn Aunt I.indv went but to take
his dinner to him last Sunday. You
remember that she didn't nnd mm,
nJ iknt aha WAR SO buSV telling
Uncle Joe and Aunt Judy about
the things that happenea tne
night before that she didn't pay
much attention to what was hap
pening that: day. All she wanted
to do was talk.
Rut ntne of vou' children were
going to guess where Hound Dog
was and what he had for his din
ner. It is pretty sure tnai bdhw
of you guessed right. Of course
Hound Dog knew all about wno
tied him up, and he knew just as
well who was going to have a great
big old ham for dinner. Another
ihmar ti knew was that there
would be plenty of room at the
that there would be
lots of howdy for an old friend of
So, after Uncle Joe and Aunt
Judy came, and they were all busy
talking about the "strange ani
mal," Hound Dog just lolled around
the house. . Nobody was paying
any attention to him, and so he
jumped over the back fence and
started through the woods to Blnck
ie's house. Blackie didn't know
for sure that he was coming, and
hadn't said a thing to him the
nighe before; but Billie Possum
just grinned when they were talk
ing about him, and asked the crowd
if any of them thought Hound
Dog was going to stay over at
Aunt Lindy's. where he would Ret
nothing for his Sunday dinner but
scraps from the table, when he
know he could sit at a table with
his friends and have thick slices
of bid ham put on his plate. No
body in the crowd did think any
such thing, but they didn't have
to think, anything very long, for
here came Hound Dog loping up
just like he was afraid he would
be late for dinner.
"Well, old fellow," said Blackie
to Hound Dog, "I really did hate
to tie you up so last night, but if
I hadn't done it you wouldn't have
had a thing but scraps for your
dinner today, and none of us
folks out here would have had
any good old ham; so I reckon you
don't mind the little joke we play
ed on you by tying you up."
"Not a bit, not a bit," said
Hound Dog, as Jocko passed him
a plate just filled with old ham and
There's no use trying to tell
what all they talked about at din
ner, but they did go over some
plans for some real frolics. Hound
Doff said he must go back rather
early, as Aunt Lindy might be
worried about him, and so he didn't
stay long after dinner. On his
way back he jumped in the creek
and got his hair all mussed up, and
when he got back Aunt Lindy
looked at him and patted him on
the back, and she told Tom to look
how wet and tired the poor dog
was from hunting for the robber.
Once more, you want to remem
ber that there wasn't anything
wrong in the way Hound Dog fool
ed Aunt Lindy and Tom. He could
n't go to Blackie's house if he
didn't fool them, and they wouldn't
have had the best dog in the world,
if Blackie hadn't sent Hound Dog
to live with them and to keep the
rnhhita from eatine un the trarden
things, and to catch those rabbits
for Aunt Lmdy and Tom to eat.
Always remember that Blaokie
pays mighty weU for everything
