He wrapped it up in a bundle and took it away. At supper time the little boy gave the puppy some of his and then his mother discovered the animal. Because the mother was fond of the child so she allowed to keep the puppy. The was very happy, he shared the boy’s meal, and slept beside him at night. In the meanwhile, the mother dog missed the puppy and was very angry, so she resolved to have her revenge, and set off to trail the robber.
