He sniffs my gloves suspiciously,
For I have been away -
His nose is telling him I saw
Another dog today.
"It's all right, Loki," I explain,
"I patted him it's true.
But I was faithful, in a way,
He was a Dachshund, too!"
by Lee Avery for the American Dachshund magazine, October, 1972.
Unrelated vintage 1950's photo source unknown.
