Denmark ft ('3 said,) was once the favor'd State Where Coach dogs first were wont to congregate ;
Now graces every canine catalogue, The well known spotted coach, or carriage Dog. Of growth genteel, of Pointer form and weight, Is highly prized by fancy men of late ; But every spot must be distinct and clear, Of equal size, and free from blot or smear ; His form erect, with tapering tail and fine . Smooth close-set hair, and perfect every line ; Thin drooping ear, clear-chamber'd glassy eye, Lest either lacking, should his race belie. From mean associates, scornfully abstains, Nor mongrel cur his confidence obtains ; The horse his friend, the stable his delight, Follows by day, and beds with him at night; Onward they travel up the hill of life, Unenvious, sociable, devoid of strife ; Attachment strange, yet true, 'twixt horse and hound ;
For 'mongst them all, was ne'er a traitor found, With joyous glance, salutes his friend at dawn. And cheers him in his weary journey on ; In days of languor, or whate'er betide, His faithful guardian, sleepless by his side.
