Notes and Comment

July 1961
New Yorker;7/29/1961, Vol. 37 Issue 24, p13
The author describes her experiences of seeing an ill-mannered dog in New York City. She saw the dog in the waiting room of the Ellin Prince Speyer Hospital for Animals. The dog and her blind mistress came plunging into the room. The dog continued to strain frantically at her harness and wanted to get out of the place. All the other animals in the room were scandalized by her bad manners. The dog made a murderous dash for the top of the steps and got her old mistress right to the edge.
