DoG.—Buffon considers the shepherd's dog as the " root of the tree," assigning as a reason that he possesses from Nature the greatest share of instinct. The Irish wolf dog is supposed to be the earliest dog known in Europe, if Irish writers be correct. Dr Gall mentions that a dog was taken from Vienna to England; that it escaped to Dover, got on board a vessel, landed at Calais, and after accompanying a gentleman to Mentz returned to Vienna.
