For a Bit of Ribbon
by Albert Payson Terhune from Lad: A Dog
Chapter V passage: "Lad: A Dog" was written by Albert Payson Terhune and published in 1919. It was based on a true story of a collie dog named Lad. In the book Lad lives with his Master and Mistress on a farm called “The Place.” He is well-loved by the Master and Mistress. The story is sometimes told from Lad’s point of view. In the passage below, Master and Mistress have taken Lad to a dog show. They have never been to a show before, and have no idea what to expect.
