Sense Of Humour In Dogs

[July 28, 1888.]

A recent anecdote from one of your correspondents about a dog and a hen

brought to my mind an incident, related to me by an eye-witness, of a

dog who had a constant feud with the fowls, which were prone to pilfer

from the basin containing his dinner. On one occasion he was lying in

front of his kennel, quietly watching a hen as she made stealthy and

tentative approaches to his basin, which at length she reached and

looked into, finding it perfectly empty. The dog wagged his tail.
