"Dogs That Laughed"
JOHNNY'S chicken it was that
big dog Rex laughed at
Johnny's little feeble-minded
chicken that one of the neighbors
had given him for helping her pick
There were no other chickens for
Johnny's chicken to go with after
he brought it home. They were
living that is, Johnny and the
rest of the family in a summer
cottage high up in the mountains
just for two or three months, and
his mother did not think of such a
thing as keeping hens.
Johnny found an old packing-box
and placed it in a shady spot under
the trees, and after he had made a
perch he put the chicken in, with
some meal-dough and water.
The chicken did not seem very
lively. When Johnny came u p
home from playing with the neigh
bor's children it was noon, and the
chicken was standing just where he
liftd left it. At night it sat in the
box and did not try to fly up to its
Johnny explained that Mrs.
Baker had told him she thought it
was a feeble-minded chicken, but
that he might have it, and if he
gave it extra care maybe it would
amount to something.
After a few days the chicken
ventured out of the box a n d
wandered a few feet away, feebly
picking at things in the grass.
Sometimes it would stand still any
where it happened to be, looking as
if it felt lost, until somebody came
along and gently carried it back to
Once or twice Johnny picketed it
out, in the morning, before he went
away to play. He tied one cud of
a string to its leg and the other end
to a little stake which he drove in
the ground, in a nice cool grassy
place, where it could reach the
clear water dripping down from the
B y and by, sometimes, the
chicken began to take longer walks;
it even came up to the cottage
porch a few times. But it did not
seem to grow any, and it still had
a way of stopping to think, right
in the middle of the path.
Rex had not taken the least
notice of the chicken in all this
time, except to look'at it now and
then as if he were idly wondering
what it could be doing there, and
what it might be good for anyway.
And that was the reason why
everybody was so surprised when
one evening, as Rex and the test
of the family were out together
under the trees in the moonlight,
the big dog suddenly made up his
mind to have a frolic with the little
For, just think! It was out there,
wandering around in the moon
light, when any chicken but a
feeble-minded chicken would have
been asleep on its perch.
All at once, Rex began chasing
that wee foolish chicken around
and around! He went in great
bounds, waving his plumy tail.
He chased it in large circles, down
the drive, around the big rose-bed.
tip the path to the maple-tree, and
back to the trees where the chairs
and the people were.
Rex did not once touch the
chicken. Whenever he found
himself coming too near he would
bring himself to a sudden stop,
with his forelegs stiff, his glossy
tail waving, his eyes sparkling, and
his big red mouth curved up into
as human a laugh as you could
imagine, a laugh brimful o f
whimsical fun, as he gazed at the
He was ready to repeat the per
formance; but Johnny came to the
rescue and put the chicken safely
to bed in its box.
When they had all exclaimed in j
wonder at Rex's human laugh, the j
little school-teacher, who was visit- i
ing there, said that once when her
family lived in Kentucky they had
a big dog like Rex, named Hugo;
and they were sitting out on the
porch one warm day, and the dog
was lying on the gravel walk near
the porch steps, thinking his own
thoughts, when . little baby blue
jay fell out of its nest in a tree,
right down upon the dog's great
The parent birds in the tree
were terribly frightened, screaming
and making a great ado. And
when Hugo gave the baby bird a
soft toss, and caught it again upon
his paws, the birds screamed more
wildly than ever, up in the tree.
And Hugo looked up at the birds
and laughed as plain a laugh as
a boy could laugh!
He tossed the bird again, with
out hurting it in the least; again
the poor birds fluttered and cried
in the tree, and again Hugo laugh
ed, looking up at them with spark
ling eyes. Then the little school
teacher's mother gently took the
bird away from Hugo and put it
up into the nest.
When Johnny came back to the
circle under the trees, he said, "I
don't see what there was for Rex
to laugh at!"
"I think he laughed because the
chicken looked so ridiculous, " said
"I think he laughed because it
was so foolish for such a big dog
to be chasing 'round after a little
bit of a feeble-minded chicken!"
"I think he laughed because the
chicken thought he was ging to
hurt it, when he wasn,t," said
Uncle Toby, "just as Hugo laugh
ed at the jays."
"And that's a mean kind of
teasing," said Johnny, "only Rex
and Hugo don't know any better.''
Anyway the dogs laughed;
everybody was sure of that.
Rex never noticed the chicken
again. It died, one day, a peace
ful natural death, and Johnny
buried it under a wild-rose bush.
