"Why, he is somewhat like other men," Miles whispered softly to Giles, but trug grumbled in his throat.
It occurred to him that trug would not be the liveliest of company.

Then he turned his back on her, and gave his attention to leading trug safely from stone to stone across the brook.
Another favourite cradle is made from a trug basket, the handle cut off.
