Excerpt from Fairy Tales Oh! You're quite wel-come, mo-ther, re-pli-cd Pat-ty, and a-gain went on her way; but she had not pro-oecd-ed far before she was over-ta-ken by a large dog, who was e-vi-dent-ly bound on a long jour-ney, for he was co-ver-ed in dust, his eyes look-ed blood-shot, and his poor, parch-cd tongue was hanging out of his mouth, to catch the cool air. Poor fel-low! Said Pat-ty. The dog turn-ed at her kind voice, and stopped to look at her; she held out her hand, and he ap-proach-ed her; she put down her pitch-er to ca-ress him, and he im3me-di ate-1y eu-dea-vour-cd to make his way to what his in-stinct told him was wa-ter she un-der-stood im-me-di-ate-ly the poor dog's wants, and held the pitch-er so that he could drink. He lap-ped and lap-ped nu-til she real-1y began to think that he ne-ver would leave off. At last he look-ed up in-to her face, and lick-ed her hand in gra-ti-tude; then, af-ter two or three bounds, to show her how re-fresh-cd he was, he trot-ted on his way.
