THE LITTLE DOG.
I like to see a little dog,
And pat him on his head,
So prettily he wags his tail,
Whenever he is fed.
Some little dogs are very good,
And very useful too,
And do you know that they will mind,
What they are bid to do?
Then I will never beat my dog,
And never give him pain, (oh good, that's nice - curator)
Poor fellow! I will give him food,
And he'll love me again.
