White wrote in 1936, "I have been agreeably encumbered by a very large and dissolute dachshund named Fred. He even disobeys me when I instruct him in something that he wants to do. And when I answer his [peremptory] scratch at the door and hold the door open for him to walk through, he stops in the middle."
As Martha White acknowledges, Fred's "reports" from Maine continued long after he had gone to the great kennel in the sky.
