There’s no such thing as the perfect dog
People will say to you
And when it comes to Shelties –
Boy, is that ever true!
Some are too big and some too small
Some hardly have any hair at all
Some are too bold and some too shy
Some have a short tail or a big round eye
Crooked legs and splayed out toes
Prick ears and hound ears and odd coloured nose –
The perfect Sheltie just can’t be made
But here’s one thing that’s really great:
To be perfect in their owners’ eyes
Shelties only need one part
And every Sheltie I ever met
Had that loving Sheltie heart.
