…and this is where my faith lives.
This is its bowl, and here
Is its blanket.  I am afraid
We had it neutered.  Better safe than sorry!

Any day in the park, you see
All kinds of people with their faiths.
Some large, some small, some pure
Bred – they take them to Crufts,

Spend all their time grooming and training,
Chatting with those who own
Faiths of the same kind, keeping records,
Inbreeding.  A lot of weaknesses creep in,

In my view.  Mine is a bit of a mongrel
Heinz 57, really.  It suits us very well,
But sometimes keeps us awake at night
Barking at shadows.
