DOGS AND MEN
That charming contributor of ours,
Miss Billie Burke, has been trying to
tell why women Tike dogs, and, of
course, has to first harrow our mas
culine soul with that suffragetish epi
gram, "The more I see of men the
better I like dogs," although Miss Bil
lie admits that there are splendid
men, as well as splendid dogs.
"If," she adds, 'a "woman is in
satiable for unqualified and unques
tioning loyalty, she had better pin her
faith to a dog.". And again,.
"Do you know that I sometimes
think the reason we (women) like
dogs so well is because they are al
ways flattering us."
'It is probably true, however, that
the great majority of women don't
like dogs. There is a well-grounded
feminine fear of dogs, in the first
place, and then dogs are always
"slobbering" and putting dirty paw3
on one's clean dress.
But there are some more women
Who are very fond of dogs. They are
such, as demand flattery' and loyalty,
although what Miss Billie calls "un
qualified loyalty" is very probably
unqualified servility, in a dog. There
are, indeed, some womenwho cannot
be happy without flattery and servil
ity. If men are not serving these
things up to them, thp next best ser
vants are dogs. It is no reflection on
that noble animal, the dog, to say
that if it were not for such women,
there are some dogs who would have
no conceivable mission in life. Na
ture, as one of her great economies,
has made some women with dogs to
But the more we see of such wo
men the sorrier we are for the dogs.
Alas for our ignorance of beneficient
Nature's designs! We don't under
stand the whyness of grasshoppers,
mosquitoes, fleas, and women whose
heart-throbs.are solely given to dogs.
In such instances, we have to throw
ourselves upon the broad, unques
tioning faith that Nature doeth all
things well. There were to be dogs
without an excuse for existence, and
so Nature kindly provided women
who couldn't gefall the servility and
flattery they wanted out of men.
Nor can we pass the topic without
expressing admiration for the ac
complishments of Miss Billie's par
ticular dog. "He is always about
when I want him," she says, "and I
can send him away when rgrow tired
of Turn. He has the advantage over
one's men friends." You have a real
fine dog, Miss Billie. There are few
men -who are always about when
wanted, ready to be kicked out.
Mighty scarce are the real men with
such special, precious advantages.
