Rather baffling children's story issued as a promotion for the Royal Baking Co. of Salt Lake City, makers of "the bread that made mother stop baking." Young Johnny has several pet dogs to whom he gives various tasks, excepting Master, the white bulldog. Master needn't work, as he once saved Johnny from a Gypsy kidnapping. "The gypsy's neck was bleeding and he yelled out in pain and fright. If it hadn't been for my uncle who came along just then, I guess Master would have chewed that gypsy to death." Baked goods do not enter into the story at all.
