Jaquenetta German Shepherd Dogs
A Poem for the Show Dog
I think that I shall never see
A dog as natural as a tree.
For in the ring, what show dog stands
That’s shown untouched by human hands?
A dog with ears erect and tall
That never needed tape at all.
A dog that gaits and doesn’t quit
Without the double handling bit.
A dog with perfect scissor bite
Untouched by dentist in the night.
A dog who stands on lead so loose
Without his owners’ “jingling” ruse.
A dog that’s truly black and tan
Without the aid of Clairol’s can.
A dog with tail that doesn’t hook
And wasn’t fixed by any crook.
Dog owners, please, this warning heed,
For show dogs aren’t a different breed.
Those little tricks that cover faults
Can’t cover progeny results!
