         OLD HOUN’


Old Houn’ is what we call our dog.

He answers to that name.

He’s supposed to be a watchdog,

But treats everyone the same.


Whoever comes to our front door

Then he’ll belly-up for a rub,

With a grand look of bliss.


He mothers orphaned kittens,

For which he baby-sits,

Though his look of total boredom

Belies his love of it.
