["Toy dogs with coats to match their owner's furs were a
feature of the recent show at the Horticultural Hall."
Daily Press.]
2Of slaughtered vermin goodness knows,
3What tails depend upon her clothes!
4Next, when I cast my eyes and see
5The living whelp she lugs to tea,
6Oh, how their likeness taketh me!
