Milton And Bulka

from Fables For Children, Stories For Children, Natural Science Stori - STORIES FOR CHILDREN





I bought me a setter to hunt pheasants with. The name of the dog was
Milton. He was a big, thin, gray, spotted dog, with long lips and ears,
and he was very strong and intelligent. He did not fight with Bulka. No
dog ever tried to get into a fight with Bulka. He needed only to show
his teeth, and the dogs would take their tails between their legs and
slink away.

Once I went with Milton to hunt pheasants. Suddenly Bulka ran after me
to the forest. I wanted to drive him back, but could not do so; and it
was too far for me to take him home. I thought he would not be in my
way, and so walked on; but the moment Milton scented a pheasant in the
grass and began to search for it, Bulka rushed forward and tossed from
side to side. He tried to scare up the pheasant before Milton. He heard
something in the grass, and jumped and whirled around; but he had a poor
scent and could not find the track himself, but watched Milton, to see
where he was running. The moment Milton started on the trail, Bulka ran
ahead of him. I called Bulka back and beat him, but could not do a thing
with him. The moment Milton began to search, he darted forward and
interfered with him.

I was already on the point of going home, because I thought that the
chase was spoiled; but Milton found a better way of cheating Bulka. This
is what he did: the moment Bulka rushed ahead of him, he gave up the
trail and turned in another direction, pretending that he was searching
there. Bulka rushed there where Milton was, and Milton looked at me and
wagged his tail and went back to the right trail. Bulka again ran up to
Milton and rushed past him, and again Milton took some ten steps to one
side and cheated Bulka, and again led me straight; and so he cheated
Bulka all the way and did not let him spoil the chase.
