My Long Eared Basset Hound (poem)

by Betsy Brenner
(Dayton Ohio )

They may not be the fastest,
No they never win the race,
That goes to the Greyhound,
So full of speed and grace.
They may not be the smartest,
Or most trainable breed,
That goes to the Labrador,
Guiding those who are in need.
They may not be tall and mighty,
No they don't stand grand and strong,
That goes to the Great Dane,
Who strides on legs so long.
They may not be the bravest,
Pulling lost souls from the snow,
That is for the Saint Bernard,
Who climbs the mountains slope.
But what they are is loyal,
Your best friend till the end,
Yes they are always there,
Through the thick and thin.
They have long massive bodies,
And stubby little legs,
Which makes them perfect for cuddling.
At the end of your longest days.
They will look into your eyes,
With their sad and soulful way,
And let you know they understand,
Although they cannot say.
All my life I've searched,
And the best friend that I've found,
I'll be true till the end,
To my long eared Basset Hound.
