An amazing dog...


by Rebel Jim

There once was a dog known as Lilly...
"Best hunter anybody ever seen!"

Her owner had worked out a system with her,
He'd tack raccoon hides of different sizes,
on a board on the back porch where he knew that she would be.

When Lilly saw the size of that critter,
she'd go out and get one of that same size.

One day a friend of his came a visitin',
hung his raccoon skinned coat out on that same back porch...

To this day I guess ol' Lilly is still wanderin',
tryin' to find a raccoon of that same size!

This was back in 1938!
