What have we here - a new type of Pied Piper of Hamelin? Somebody with?
What have we here - a new type of Pied Piper of Hamelin? Somebody with sinister intentions, who makes little dogs go to the way of all sausage-meat? Have no fear, Madam, and don't call your local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. For this man is about to create a new profession. He is the City of Berne's only "puppysitter".
Mr. X - his name is not revealed - has made it his business to look after other people's dogs. He will take Fido or Fifi for a stroll down the road if Master is down with the 'flu' or Mistress is busy with the Monday washing.
So every morning he makes his round of calls, collecting his "flock". Even though he can't get them to walk in orderly "crocodile" fashion, he has them well under control. And when they get down to the lakeside, every one of his four-footed friends has a go at fetching back the stick from the water. Who's complaining about a dog's life now?
