Enterprising News Vender Trains Dog to Peddle Papers
CHICAGO has the ideal street corner newspaper vender. He can’t shout, because this “newsboy” is a dogâ€”a well trained police dog that energetically goes about the business of peddling papers.
The dog has been trained by his master to carry a newspaper in his mouth in such a manner that the headlines are well displayed. The dog wears a little Swiss hat, which bears the legend, “Buy Your Papers From Me.” To a bit of harness is attached a tin cup. When a coin is dropped in the cup, the dog is trained to release the newspaper. As soon as one paper is sold, it is replaced by the dog’s owner.
