A Dogs Tale
by Twain, Mark - - Clemens, Samuel
orig. pub. by Harper Brothers, NY - copyright 1905       in a collective volume -The Celebrated Jumping Frog And Other Stories - isbn 0-89577-415-1 (none on original) - - 35 p.
Twain writes an autobiography of a dog. As the tale unfolds one discovers she is a female, from puppyhood ad a description of how she was raised by her mother to be smart and understand some words and conversation of humans, and to be a noble beast supporting and fearlessly protecting her human master(s).
Upon reflection it seems to me that there is some echo of Twains feeling about slavery and the use of others by 'owners' in this story.
I read this as a PDF file in a Kindle.
