Get Rid Of The Advertisements

We Love our Basenji

My kids and their dog...back when...

Dad told us when he bought this pet
the tallest tale he's told us yet.
He reckons there's a monkey, see,
dog-tailed, cannot climb a tree.
It barks where once it howled and yapped
(Dad laughed then and his sides he slapped).
Scientists crossed two creatures over,
a howling ape and a dog named Rover.
Now we've a curly-tailed old dog,
while in Africa (Dad read in a blog),
there's a barking monkey can't climb trees
which our pooch could likely scale with ease.
