Animal of the day: woman's best friend
This clever dog is from a poem about Old Mother Hubbard and her animals that was published in 1883 in the book Chatterbox For The Little Folks (John E. Potter & Co., Philadelphia). The book is one of many that was put together - without permission - from material found in the British weekly/monthly. Copyright was a tempestuous issue then, as it is now.
