Neither, Edna, this is Mitz, the aris
tocratic frouse. The canine with the
arctic npse and the whiskbroom coat
of fur. The airedale is a very- dainty
dog, light on his feet like the usher
at the ball park. When he gallops
through the parlor the piano is the
only thing left standing.
Society people like the airedale be
cause it makes such a fool of itself.
(There must be sometihng in that
old strip of chatter, "Birds of a feath
er flock side by each.")
The under part of an airedale's
chin makes Niagara Falls look like
the Sahara desert. The airedale isn't
particular what he eats. Anything
Airedales are very fond of children.
Get one for the baby.
"What's the trouble, girlie?"
"Oh, Algernon, I'm afraid for you.
Father threatens to kick you into the
middle of next week."
"Well, my dear, if he insists, let
him do it. But hold next Wednesday
evening open for me."
