Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“To wake the dog, a cutting lash is given; / Upwards he springs, with furious anger driven, / Runs at the youth, who flees in a great afright, / Quick o’er the ground, with all his main and might; / Closely pursued, he falls amid the stones; / He breaks his leg, his arm; he loudly groans: / By sad experience he’s a lesson got, / When dogs are sleeping, then awake them not."—Barber, 1857
