Darn Dog Days
Hanne Lore Koehler
Painting - Watercolor
This is the first painting of Maggie, a beautiful old Basset Hound, whose wonderful owner would take her for walks in the wheelbarrow when she was too old to walk on her own. I came across this lovely poem about a special Bassett; unfortunately, the author is unknown.
What is a Basset Hound?
She looks so old to be so young,
so sad to be so gay,
This Basset Hound with wrinkled brow
is in my heart to stay.
With four short legs and happy tail
and ears that drag the ground,
With a crazy habit all her own
of sleeping upside down.
She gives love in abundance,
enough for me to share,
With all the neighbors on the block
and much, much more to spare.
Her dress is quite peculiar,
I’m sure that you’d surmise,
She wears a very elegant coat
but it must be twice her size.
Twice usual size, inside her chest,
is a heart that’s made of gold,
God must have been in a jovial mood
when He made the Basset mold.
She’s quite a clown by nature,
in looks and actions too,
She cheers you up when you are down
and loves you when you’re blue.
And when you’re ready for a romp,
she’s always there to play,
This funny girl with wrinkled brow
is in my heart to stay.
