Tea Cake split the water like an otter, opening his knife as he dived. The dog raced down the back-bone of the cow to the attack and Janie screamed and slipped far back on the tail of the cow, just out of reach of the dog’s angry paws. -Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God 1.Which details reveal that the dog has rabies?
