“Do you know why? It is because I always say 'Bowwow. It is all I know how to say.
Have you seen our baby? She has big black eyes, and her mouth looks like a pink rosebud.
'She is a sweet little girl, and I love her dearly.
“I did not like her at first, but that was a long time ago.
My master was very fond of her, and that made me feel cross.
“I used to bark at the baby and show all my teeth.
After that they did not let me go near her.
“I did not see the baby for a long time, but I did not care for that.
“My master did not seem to like me then.
“Every time he saw me he would
say, “Go away, Dick! you bad dog! You are not good to my baby!
“So I was not happy. I made up my mind to bite that baby.
“It was a long time before I got a chance to bite her.
“But one day I found her alone, as she lay in her little crib.
“I jumped up and put both my paws on her crib.
But I did not bite her after all. Shall I tell you why ?
She was too pretty to bite, so I kissed her, and have loved her ever since.
“Now, because I kiss the baby and love her, my master likes me again.
'He pats my head, and says, “Good old dog! Good Dick ! You love the baby, don't you ?'
“I am glad I am not a cross dog now. I feel better when I am good, don't you ? "

A kiss when I wake in the morning,
A kiss when I go to bed,
A kiss when I hurt my head.
A kiss when my bath is over,
A kiss when my bath begins; My mamma is full of kisses,
As full as nurse is of pins.
A kiss when I play with my rattle,
A kiss when I pull her hair; She covered me over with kisses
The day I fell from the stair.
