Limerick - There Once Was A Man From Wiscasset

Some people are like dogs in that we wonder sometimes why we ever taught them to speak!

Speak!  Speak!  Don't speak!

Some dogs are crooners.



There once was a man from Wiscasset,

Who choosing a dog, chose a Bassett.

What he soon was to find,

Drove him out of his mind,

When THAT dog’s howling was no asset.

Matthew Weese, wetnosedogs, and dahoglund---even those who didn't go to an East Coast college might like the next one, since all they need to know is that "Boola Boola" is the title of a Yale song. Thanks for the comments, and wetnosedogs' knowledge that Bassetts just naturally howl...even if you are not asking them to "Speak!"

Gypsy Rose Lee - Reminds me of an ancient (8th Century epic poem) called "Beowulf" and its hero warrior of that name. That would surely be a good name for a Basssett Hound.
