On this page there is pricking for 29 lines with two additional lines added at the bottom by the scribe. The upper image is damaged by the pricking for pouncing on f.18r. Initial indicator 'l' in left margin. Initial type 2. After this page a leaf is missing which probably showed the dog detecting a murderer, the story told on f.19r. In Ashmole 1511, f.26r and f.26v, there are two full page illustrations of this subject, each story divided into three panels.
Dogs, their habits. The text here describes the missing illustrations of the dog detecting his master's murderer.
The illustration refers to the stories overleaf on f.19v.It is divided into three panels, the top two referring to the dog who carries some meat over a bridge and seeing its own reflection in the water, drops the meat to seize the reflection. Below are two dogs licking their wounds with their healing tongues.
The text on f.19v deals with these two episodes in the opposite order. Initial indicator 's' in red in right margin, and a quire mark (d) at the bottom. There is significant paint flaking of black stripes on the middle dog. Clark (2006, 223) detects a change of scribal hand 'somewhat more compact and rounded' starting on this page. Initial type 2.
