Everywhere else dog is man's best friend. put here man is dog's best friend. As proof of man's solicitude for caninus four-footus, here where the stars twinkle day and night, consider the Pacific Dog Caterers Company, the Doggies Dinner Company, the Dog Town Packing Company, the Holly-Wilshire Dog Feeding Company, the S'cienUit Dog Feeding Company, and a dozen other similar concerns. Suppose you come .Lo Hollywood, bringing along with you Rovef; Spot, Shep or Jeff. You wotil'd be almost certain to get a call from one of the companies mentioned above asking you to-allow them to cater to the whims of your dog's appetite. Say that you remembered the time Rover frightened away "a burglar' with a bark and decided to repay him by signing up for a daily delivery of dog delicacies. The first move on the part of the catering company would be to send' a staff pooch physician to examine your pet from bite to tail. Tne diagnosis complete, me uo-.«- would recommend a diet that would' brighten the coat, sharpen tne- teem, and deepen the bark of old Rover. The next morning a uniformed attendant would 'arrive at your house in a smart delivery wagon and deliver', as if bearing a gift from Tiffany's, Rover's first meal. It . would be packed in a gay colored bowl, covered 'with cellophane to hold in the vitamins from A to Z and preserve the flavor and bouquet that the canine chef: had worked so hard to achieve. The delivery man probably wouldn't- stoop so low as to help you drag Rover out of the garbage can or from the flower bed where he was digging up a choice bone he had buried earlier in the week. I .watched this catering service in operation while visiting a movie director's home the other -day, and I shook my head in bewilderment; as I recalled the endless procession of dogs of my boyhood, and wondered how they managed to keep body and soul together. To begin with, I only knew two kinds of dogs when I was a boy. The ones you found and the ones people gave you. I was in New York three years ' before I discovered that anyone ever bought a dog. In my home town there'was always a'"litter barking within earshot and a fellow could always have the runt for the asking. - . There- were only two kinds '"of dog food, too, when I was master of the McLemore kennels. The first was table scraps and" the second was forage. When any of the dogs decided we weren't setting a 'good enough table they just qiiit thumping their tails on the porch and went out on their own. Between the Mauleys and the Snellgrbves and the Kelleys and the Yarns and the Reeves they could always scout up a substantial meal. Our dogs could always sense when the family was having s6s^e- thing they liked. Then they would peer through the dining room windows and bay when the children asked for a second helping, knowing this would reduce their scraps. They '" were particularly .fond of chicken bones, not knowing, that chicken bones were supposed to be bad for them. Maybe these Hollywood dogs are" happier, with their balanced diets and unbalanced owners, but I hav mv doubts. Read Courier' News xvant Substitutes:. Tigers — Meredith" 3. C coter— Woochva rd .
