Mr. Rube hollered to his oldest to bring more water, and when the boy opened the cabin door Big Ole Dog followed him and, to everyone’s horror, grabbed the baby off the pan and ran out the door.
“Get that dog! Get that dog!”
But it was too late. Big Ole disappeared into the timber, and the dogs that had been sleeping just put their heads up, then laid them back down again when the commotion was over.
