Black Sambo

Coat black with shiny, wet nose,
Whiskery beard, and gleaming eyes of brown,
Peeping out through long eyebrows
With pink, panting tongue and a cheeky grin.

All over black my Sambo was,
With wavy coat, plucked short on top,
A powerful tail just like a whip,
He never was fooled, not missing a trick.

Scottish Terrier, bred from Kennelgarth Great Scot,
Loved us all equally and gave such a lot,
We love him still, though many years since he passed,
He's always with us, minding our backs.
