ODOP: Old Danilo (3)

True, they tried to set the bloodhounds on him.
‘Twere a greater number than can be counted,
Snapping and yipping, and all the size
Of bears. But Ivan the Appetitacious turned
On his heel and broke their necks, two by two.
He left twelve of the largest alive,
Still enough to rip apart most men, but
Ivan knocked them about and licked their noses,
And so the half-wild dogs followed him
Evermore. He and they spoke the same tongue.
