From Shadow to Beau

By Roger J. Hull

Where'd da "Shadow" go?
Only da "Beau" nose.
Out of the shelter, into the home
Foller them everywhere
Underfoot, rug rat, right behind
hence name da "Shadow"
Gota haircut and then a picture
but only the nose showed
New name hard to foller
and even harder to swaller
So a vote was made
and the "Bo" was titled
Where'd da "Shadow" go?
Only da "Beau" nose

Roger’s family brought "Shadow"
( A Shitsui) home from the shelter.
And then they had his name legally
changed to "Beau"
