Description Career, Romance, and Fmnily It would be almost criminal to deny a dog to a boy. My small brother at a very early age said to my mother: "I wonder if God has enough skin to make a little dog for me." God did have and it was not long before one appeared. My son at about the same age, after the death of his little brother, asked, with tears in his eyes for a dog.

My first natural impulse was to run, but I knew they would be upon me before I could get any where. The next thought was to fight which I realized would end in being torn to pieces. But the better impulse came in thinking of what I had read and heard. Show no fear and talk to them kindly, which I did and in a short time they were off after a colt, but not before some had put their teeth through my coat sleeve and pocket. They just missed getting my hand which I held out in a friendly way. I gave up painting along the Jordan.
