A dog often turns up
In my father’s stories.
Filled with good will,
He offers sound advice
Which no one follows.
I wonder if he is related
To Snowy, Tintin’s dog?
If Tintin listened to Snowy
There’d be no adventures;
The books would just show
Bars where we’d watch
Captain Haddock drinking
For page after page after page.
