The Dogs are Hungry – Navajo Language Lesson

The Dogs are Hungry - Navajo Language Lesson

The dogs are hungry, too.
They crowd in the hogan.
The black one is not sleeping now.
He lies with his head t on his paws and looks at nothing.
The yellow one whimpers.
He has worked hard, but there is no food.
