Instinct Or Reason?

[Sept. 1, 1888.]

The following incident in dog-life may perhaps find a place in the

Spectator. I quote from a letter received a few days ago from my

nephew, "T. G. T.," resident in South Africa:--"Johannesburg,

Traansvaal.--My dog Cherry has had three great pups, and I had to leave

her behind at the Grange. When I was going away, Cherry and the pups

were located in some stables. She came out and watched the tent-truck

and my things packed up. Presently I went away, and when I came back I

found Cherry had carried all the pups on to the top of my luggage, and

evidently had not the least intention of staying behind."
