a dog that’d just been neutered. Pa knew this so [tape damaged] local guy by the name of Bulldog Brown, with a crocodile’s snarl and a grape-sized hole where he lost his eye [tape damaged] stopped at a “blind pig,” as they called ‘em. He’d pay a quarter [tape damaged] shakin’ wildly, like one of them guys with that disease, you know, ahh..
