To KE’NNEL. v.n. [from kennel.] To lie; to dwell: used of
beasts, and of man in contempt.
Yet, when they list, would creep,
If ought disturb’d their noise, into her womb,
And kennel there; yet there still bark’d and howl’d
Within, unseen. Milton’s Par. Lost, b. ii.
The dog kennelled in a hollow tree, and the cock roosted
upon the boughs. L’Estrange’s Fables.
