"The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man's." – Mark Twain, Letter to W D Howells, 4/2/1899

Peace and Quiet.


That wasn’t his name, but it is what we called him.

‘Peace and Quiet’.

He lived with a family that had nine children. He loved kids, which was just as well. Usually, he could keep up with them: play with them until they dropped. In order to keep up this frenetic pace, he occasionally needed a bit of peace and quiet.

He had a favourite spot just behind the old brick shed at the back of the house where the shaggy dog lived. The shaggy dog didn’t mind him being there, he understood because his family had a lot of children when he was a pup.

We didn’t bother him during his quiet time. He was a good dog and we wanted him to be happy.
