Dogs Explained

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care


The doggies had a meeting

They came from near and far

Some by aeroplane

And some by motor car


Before upon the splendid feast

They were allowed to look

Each doggie took his backside off

And hung it on a hook


Now when they all were seated there

Together Dam and Sire,

Some smutty little yellow dog

Got up and shouted ‘Fire!’


Now in the rush that followed

Not one dog stopped to look,

Each grabbed the nearest backside

From the nearest hook.


This story tells the reason why

A dog will drop his bone

To sniff another’s backside

To see if it’s his own!
