From The Jaws of a Wolf
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/cbc29_fromthejaws_wj_128kb.mp3 09:20

No, author specified, appeared page 359 of "Chums".
Story found at: Chums95-Dog.pdf
Journal: VictoriamVoice.net
Section: Victorian Pets: Dogs
Subsection: True Tales of Man's Best Friend

I searched Google, Gutenberg and IA for the title and for chums95 - all with no luck.
This story came from Colleen's suggested Victorian link above, and the story is here: https://www.victorianvoices.net/ARTICLES/MISC/Chums/Chums95-Dog.pdf
I don't see an author listed either, so I guess we just say published in Victorian Voice

PL Notes on Fuzzles

In several instances, you read P_______ as Pblank. It sounds weird. Not sure why authors do this so often but many readers handle proper nouns like this as:
My friend P. From the town of H. On the B bridge etc.
Not asking you to change it, but you could probably edit out the "blank" without re-recording anything if you wish.
You do say Dr. H later in the story, rather than Hblank. It sounds much better!

14:03 a wraith in white flannel, you say fennel
Volume from 12:07 to the end drops off considerably. It could be raised +3.5 to better match the front end.

When you upload again, please change your file name to fuzzles, not fullzies

Lynne, I found these dates on G. B. Burgen, and presume it's the same author.
G. B. Burgin
(1856—1944)
I don't see anyone else online by that name. He isn't coming up in our database. Should I add these dates to the metadata?

I've added him with Bergin added as a pseudonym, as we're not sure which spelling is correct :mrgreen:

PL Notes A Dog Day

Hi Grant, what an unusual and delightful story! You did a great job bringing out the humor. Alas, I have a few notes for you to attend to:

4:23 missing word: "Memo: to take it out of her kittens later."
9:08 missing text, and two time errors: You read 8:10 and 8:20, but it really is 8:01, followed by 8:02, then you skip 8:05 thru 8:30, and pick up again at 8:40.

8:1.
Ravenous.
8:2.
Have one of the nicest pieces of coal I have ever
come across.
8:5.
Nose around the kitchen floor, and glean a bit of
onion, an imitation tortoise-shell comb, a shrimp
(almost entire), an abominably stale chunk of
bread, and about half a yard of capital string.
After coal, I think I like string best. The family
have noticed what a lot of this I stow away, and
it was not a bad idea of young Mr. Brown’s, the
other day, that, if I had the end of a piece of
string always hanging from my mouth, they could
use me as a string-box. Though it is scarcely a
matter for joking about. Still, it made me laugh.
8:30.
If one had to rely on other people one might
starve. Fortunately, in the hall I happen on the
treacle-pudding, and I get first look in. Lap up
the treacle, and leave the suet for the family.

8:40.
Down into the kitchen again. Sit by the fire,
and pretend I don’t know what treacle is like.

Outro: End of A Dog Day, A is missing.
------------------------------------------------------------------
TIP: I'm betting you didn't follow along with the text on your final PL of your file, or you would surely have noticed the missing text above. Is that right? Some readers rely on PL'ers to discover such errors. However, be aware that not all PLers follow along with the text, so they wouldn't catch the missing text either. I always follow along, on my own and other readers' files. I don't want any authors gazing at me from above and smacking their foreheads in horror at my mussing with their story.

TIP #2 For some weird reason, text sometimes goes missing from a gutenberg project. It's there when you record it, and not there when you proof it, or vice versa. Same link, same story. So I ALWAYS refresh a gutenberg page every time I use it. Like I clicked on your link, and then when it opened I refreshed the page. It's one of those "mysteries" I don't bother to try and figure out. I just pass the suggestion along.
