Some Sausage Sandwiches
Some Sausage Sandwiches
One morning last summer Mrs Andrews made some sausage sandwiches for her husband's lunch. There was one sausage left over. Mrs Andrews didn't care for sausages herself and so she gave the last one to Henry, their little dog. Henry ate it up q uickly.
During the morning the dog got ill. He wouldn't stop shaking his head and he couldn't stand up properly. Mrs Andrews thought, "He has eaten something that didn't agree with him. Maybe that sausage was bad. . . " She suddenly remembered her huusband's lunch. She ran to the telephone and called Jim at the office.
"Jim, I hope you haven't eaten any of those sandwiches yet. "
"Yes, I have. . . "
"You have? Well, listen- don't eat any more. I gave Henry the last sausage and now he's ill. Go to the doctor, Jim. Tell the doctor about the dog. Get some medicine at once. "
Jim came home at lunchtime and went to bed. "I had a very wnpleasant hour with the doctor," he told his wife. "The medicine made me very sick." The next morning Jim was fine. Henry seemed quite well again too. At eleven o'clock the milkman came with the milk.
"Good morning, Mrs Andrews," The milkman said. "How's your dog this morning? I have been thinking about him. . . "
"Have you?' Well, he seems alright now, but. . . "
"Yesterday morning he and I had a little accident. He jumped up at .me and I dropped a bottle of milk on his head. "
