The Dachshund

I found this adorable poem in a book of dog poetry this week and could not resist sharing! Enjoy!

The Dachshund

A dachshund sniffing round a tree,
Made such a wondrous bend, sir.
He filled himself with mystery--
Not knowing his own end, sir.

Some other dogs have keener sights,
And some have greater strength, sir.
But no dogs manage, for their height,
To have so much of length, sir.

One time--at least, so people say--
One lost his tail by train, sir;
Yet two weeks passed until the day
The sad news reached his brain, sir.

The Dachshund looks a little bit
Like legs upon a log, sir.
But once your eyes get used to it,
You see that it's a dog, sir!

-John E Donovan.
