Readers Dog Stories

I came across this very old book TWILIGHT STORIES: TRUE STORIES ABOUT DOGS AND CATS by Mrs. Follen was published 1889 (Date to title page) by Lee & Shepard; Boston. This is a second hand book for sale but it’s title seemed appropriate for this page. It is a small bound in green illus cloth – MUST SEE PICS! Book is in very nice condition, other than a touch of tone to eps almost near fine – touch of rub to extrems. 96pgs. Illustrated black and white by Billings.

Thought it was worth a mention.

BINGARA MAYO’S SON
There was once a time in our splendid past when the Queensland Blue Heeler, or the Queensland Blue, as the animal is more commonly known, epitomised everything that stood for a proud nation. He was brutish, tough, vicious -tempered, would fight at the drop of a hat but stuck by his mates, hated fancy food and would screw anything that moved. Even better, those pommie bastards wouldn’t have a bar of him. The lah-de-dahs who ran Cruft’s Dog Show declared he was not “a recognized breed “, but they didn’t bloody dare come over here and say that, did they? My colonial oath they didn’t. Because old blue here, would have their moleskins off quicker than they could change their accents. Times unfortunately change. Outside my window sits Bingara Mayo’s Son, the descendant of a once feared and terrifying race. The magpies have just stolen his breakfast toast…[“a recognised breed“]

More funny photos than stories, but worth a look.
