Too Cute in Spots

I love Louisa May Alcott's books. (I think we've already established that!) However, there are certain parts of Under The Lilacs that I find just a bit too cute.
For example, several times LMA refers to the dog, Sancho, as a Bow Wow. I hate to say it, but that almost makes me want to bark, er, barf!
