'Perhaps I Should Have Found Out Something Though,' He Said, With A Smile,'if It Had Not Been For That There Old Dog As We Used To Keep In The Tub At The Back Of The House.

Such a lot of folk used to come to our back door all day long after victuals, some out

Of the village, and some from the next parish, and some as went round regular, and gipsy chaps, and chaps as pretended to come from London - you never saw such a crowd, - just because the old man and the missus was rather good to 'em. So there they was a-clacking at that door all day long. But this 'ere dog in the tub used to sarve 'em out sometimes if they didn't mind. (Chuckle.) She never barked, or nothing of that sort, never let 'em know as there was a dog there at all; there she'd lie as quiet till they was just gone by a little - then out she'd slip without a word behind them, and solp 'em by the leg. Lord, how they did jump and holler! (Chuckle.) See, they had the pinch afore they knowed as she was there. Lord, what a lot she did bite to be sure! (thoughtfully); I can't tell 'e how many, her did it so neat. That kept folk away a little, else I suppose we shouldn't have had anything to eat ourselves. None of 'em never went wrong, you know, never went mad or anything of that sort - never had to send nobody to Paris in them days to be dog-vaccinated.
