Mr. Louis Carr, well known local butcher and fancier of snappy canine pets, was greatly perturbed, Wednesday morning, when his large, white, short-haired bull terrier gazed up at him pathetically with a big, round pair of black horn-rimmed glasses painted on his long, melancholy face.
Not only did the horn-rimmed glasses and ear-lugs adorn the dog’s physiognomy, but heavy beetling eyebrows also had been traced on the doggie’s forehead. That the ministrations of the veterinary-oculist (singular or plural) gave the hefty bull terrier a most studious expression, did not seem to soothe the ruffled feelings of its owner. “This is no joke,” said he, mad as the meat-axe he was wielding, “that paint will remove the dog’s hair and if I get hold of the right parties the dog’s hair won’t be the only hair that will fly.”
So some of the practical jokers on Mill Street had better thank goodness that dogs can’t talk no matter how mournful and studious they may look through their black-rimmed glasses.
Margaret McNeely My father dealt with Louis Carr all the time for meat for our restaurant. Our dog Chummy use to go to the back of the store that was on the Main Street and they would treat him to a bone.
