LA’PDOG. n.s.

LA'PDOG. n.s.

LA’PDOG. n.s. [ lap and dog.] A little dog, fondled by ladies
in the lap.
One of them made his court to the lap-dog, to improve
his interest with the lady. Collier.
These if the laws did that exchange afford,
Would save their lap-dogs sooner than their lord. Dryden.
Lap-dogs give themselves the rowsing shake,
And sleepless lovers just at twelve awake. Pope.

    Isn’t that “exchange afford”, not ‘aoord’?
