Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Hello dog, what do you want, eh? Ah! A cur. Yet man's best friend.
/
Mr. Bunion: Come here! Come here, let me pet you. You are always looking for a petting. Nice dog.
/
Mr. Bunion: There you are. Not a tousle not a care on your mind. Nothing to worry about and little would you--
/
Mr. Bunion: Care if you did. Sleep and eat is your only occupation. Your life is one long recreation.
/
Mr. Bunion: A holiday from beginning to end. No ambition. No regrets. Nothing but continual--
/
Mr. Bunion: My! but that dog has an awful dose of fleas.
/
Mr. Bunion: Oh, well, I'll be on my way I'll get to scratching--
/
Mr. Bunion: Myself, I guess its scratch pretty much all around nowadays, yes!
