A very sweet continuous story of a little white dog, perhaps some kind of terrier, who went along on a visit to Grandfather's farm with Fred and then got lost. Each of the 12 chapters telling of his adventures has an illustrated half title and small decorations and illustrations with 3-5 detailed little rebus drawings in text as well. Nice animal illustrations by a turn of the century artist and illustrator, (not the famous animal illustrator Margaret S. Johnson, who would have been 8 years old in 1901.)
