If It Walks Like a Dog …

by Brian Allgar

“A Japanese dog lover who achieved internet fame by dressing head to toe in a bespoke collie costume…
transforms into the collie once a week … His antics were seemingly well-received in the video of him
walking on all fours in a park by passers-by and other dogs, who seemed inquisitive above all else.”
Daily Mail

He had a Collie costume made,
And wore it once a week.
He roamed the park, he barked and bayed,
Which drew a canine clique.

And in the manner of their kind,
They greeted him on sight,
But when they sniffed at his behind,
It didn’t smell quite right.
