As a general thing cowards bark but little, since, as we have said, barking is for two purposes: to give fair warning, which cowards never do, or to attract attention, which cowards seldom crave. The rare occasions when they do voice a challenge to other dogs or an apparent ultimatum to humans to keep their distance are usually under
conditions that make the coward consider it impossible for the dog to accept the challenge or the human to reach him and call his bluff. If the barker discovers he was mistaken in either of these assumptions he stops barking, drops his tail and slinks out of the danger zone as quickly and unobtrusively as he can.

Finally, cowardly dogs sometimes stoop so low as to attack children. For this reason alone, if for no other, they merit no mercy and should receive none. If you are unfortunate enough to own a dog of this kind, I have only this to say, and I can’t say it too emphatically. The slightest injury inflicted on an innocent child by your cowardly dog or mine outweighs all other considerations. Even if he is a pampered household pet, he should be turned over to a veterinarian, given a dose of chloroform and painlessly but permanently put out of circulation.
