The story is told of an old lady who rented a cottage for the summer. With the cottage was also a dog. The old lady liked a very comfortable armchair better than any other in the house. She always made for it the first thing. But, unfortunately! she nearly always found the chair occupied by the dog. Being afraid of the dog, she never dared tell it harshly to get out of the chair, but instead she would go to the window and call “Cats!” Then the dog would rush to the window and bark, and the old lady would slip quietly into the vacant chair.
One day the dog entered the room and found the old lady in possession of the chair. He strolled over to the window, and looking out, appeared very much excited and set up a tremendous barking. The old lady arose and hurried to the window to see what was the matter, and the dog quietly climbed into the chair.

But afterward his mouth will be filled with gravel.
