Don, a Runaway Dog: His Many Adventures by Richard Barnum ( - ).

This project can now be found in our catalog at https://librivox.org/don-a-runaway-dog-his-many-adventures-by-richard-barnum/
"Don was one of five little puppies. With his brothers and sisters he cuddled up close to Mrs. Gurr, the mother dog, to keep warm, for it was rather cool for little dogs, even though there was plenty of straw in the kennel, or house, where they lived. Don shivered and trembled, but when his mother put her soft, warm paw over him and the other little dogs, Don felt better." ( Excerpt from Chapter 1)

In all nursery literature animals have played a conspicuous part; and the reason is obvious, for nothing entertains a child more than the antics of an animal. These stories abound in amusing incidents such as children adore, and the characters are so full of life, so appealing to a child’s imagination, that none will be satisfied until they have met all of their favorites. (Publisher's note)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/61401
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard
  • Dedicated Proof Listener preferred



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Don,

Thanks so very much. Happy to have you aboard :clap:

Now we'll just wait for an MC to pick it up and we'll be off and running.

I should share with you that I won't be starting to record until after March 1st. I leave tomorrow morning for a 7-day cruise of the Caribbean :9: I'll let you know when I'm back.

Hi Don & Phil,

I'm back! A tad bit lighter (some really rough seas!) and rather exhausted. But ready to get back into the swing of things. Watch for submissions to start this coming week.
