Weep not for them. Because of some Good Samaritans, un- known to us, the pups are fat and free and happy. Origin of Ihe dogs can not be pinpointed.

A large piece of heavy cloth 'has been lossed down for bed. But Ihe dogs use il, in- stciid, as a plaything out in their runaround. The mongrels couldn't be bothered for a pholo taken by one wilh only camera in hand.. So the photographer had lo go back lo. town to get some good- ies. Then the pups hod their pictyre made.
