Once upon a time there was a man and he had a dog of which he was very proud. One time the man got a job. He did not get much money for the time he was working. His boss owed him one hundred and sixty pounds. One day his his boss sent another paying him. The man made off to the boss that he was not paid. The little dog darted to the mans pocket and got the purse in which the money was. Then he gave the purse to the man's boss.
When the man went home he shot the dog for spying on him.
