My dog is a big dog.

He is not a pup now.

He will put up his paws,

And beg for a bit to eat.

If I say, Sit up, to him,

He will sit up on, his legs.

If I say, Beg, to him,

He wags his paws, and is fed.

One day when I took a walk
in the wood, I saw an old Fox
in a hole, and close by were
her two cubs at play. One of
the cubs lay on his back, and
held his tail in his paws; but
when they saw me, they all ran
far back in the hole. I wish
my dog, Spot, had been there
with me.





81


Have you seen a park, full of
tall trees, and large green lawns,
and smooth fish-ponds ? and have
you seen the deer lie un-der the
broad and sha-dy elms, when the
sun was hot? Or, have you seen
them bound from a clumpf of trees
on the lawn, to the deep woods
all round it ? I love to see "the
young fawns skip and frisk.

I have a horse, and a dog,
whose name is Spot. We are
to go to the wood to-day, and
try to find the old fox, and hunt
her. Do you know, that our man
John saw that old fox come in
to the yard, and steal a fat hen;
so we must see if we can find
her. If we do, she will not get
a-way from our Spot, I know.






85


Kit, Kit, do not pull me so. I

can not work, if you play with

my thread. You must go to bed,

bad Kit, if you will not be still.

I will play with you, when I have

done my work, but not now; so

be a good Kit, and be still, or

you must go out in the yard, and

play with the dog; and then he

will snarl, and bite you.

SAnn and Sam are in the farm
Syard. Ann has gone to the well

Hattie can sit by the fire to

meat. Will not you like to dine
with her. She would be very

Did you ever help to make
hay.? It is fine fun. You have
to take a long fork, and toss
the hay in the air, and when the
sun has shone on it, and made
it qiite dry, you must get a
rake and rake it up, so as to
make hay-cocks; and when the
boys will not work, you may
cover them up with the hay.
