"If your aunt for a moment thought that there were any insects in that dog, she would be ill." "But I'm sure that there are some in his coat, uncle," I said, "for if you watch him when he's lying on the hearth-rug to-night, every now and then he jumps up and snaps at them, and bites the place."

He thrust out his mangled fore-foot, all dark with dried blood. There were cruel bites low down on his side, and his throat was torn and worried. "Eat," said Akela, rising up from the meat Mowgli had brought him, and the Outlier flung himself on it. "This shall be no loss," he said humbly, when he had taken off the first edge of his hunger.
