Ode to Basenjis

Here's a fine little poem I wrote myself, with only a little help from Mom's rhyming dictionary.  I hope you like it!


Here’s to basenjis,
  the best of all dogs!
They run and they hunt
  and they jump high, like frogs.

They come from the Congo,
  a very old breed,
They hung out with pharaohs,
  an honor indeed!

They’re red, tri, and brindle,
  but black is the best.
They have nice, white markings
  on feet, neck, and chest.

Basenjis are yodelers,
  they don’t really bark,
And if they’re annoyed,
  they are likely to snark.

They win in the show ring,
  at lure coursing, too,
They’re champs at agility
  also, woo hoo!
They’re cuddlers, especially
  under the covers.
Basenjis are naturally
  champion lovers!
