Fario publishes English-language electronic editions of older books or shorter pieces originally published in German, Catalan, French, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese. Several original English-language stories are available as well.

"Life is this way: first you have to beg for things and then you have to growl to keep them." Argos's master has been sent to the mountains for his health. Bored, he resolves to teach his hunting dog to talk. The experiment fails, but he himself--the more advanced animal--manages to learn Argos's language.
