You may have heard of the term "Old Mother Hubbard....but have you ever read the whole story about her and her dog? This story was submitted by a Petplace user that bought a very old children's book at an auction.

The book is printed on fabric and is estimated to be almost 150 years old. The illustrations are great!

OLD MOTHER HUBBARD and Her Dog

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To get her poor Dog a bone;
But when she came there
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.

She went to the baker's,
To buy him some bread,
But when she came back
The poor Dog was dead.

She went to the joiner's,
To buy him a coffin,
But when she came back
The poor Dog was laughing.

She took a clean dish,
To get him some tripe,
But when she came back
He was smoking his pipe.

She went to the ale-house
To get him some beer,
But when she came back
The Dog sat in a chair.

She went to the tavern,
For white wine and red,
And when she came back
He stood on his head.

She went to the hatter's
To buy him a hat,
But when she came back
He was feeding the Cat.

She went to the barber's
To buy him a wig,
But when she came back
He was dancing a jig.

She went to the fruiterer's
To buy him some fruit,
But when she came back
He was playing a flute.

She went to the tailor's,
To buy him a coat,
But when she came back
He was riding a Goat.

She went to the cobbler's,
To buy him some shoes,
But when she came back
He was reading the news.

She went to the sempstress,
To buy him some linen,
But when she came back
The dog was spinning.

She went to the hosier's,
To buy him some hose,
But when she came back
He was dress'd in his clothes.

The Dame made a curtsey,
The Dog made a bow;
The Dame said "Your servant,"
The Dog said "Bow-wow!"



The END.
