Dog days

Let’s see if Selwyn Cardew
can do any better:
Can he imitate a greyhound
or an Irish setter?

Oh dear, that’s not convincing,
and his lips were seen to move.
Lock him in the dog house
till his canine riffs improve.

We might have to go with Pimlico Joe
and his hairy Belgian beagle,
or use a pre-recording,
though it’s not entirely legal.

‘I can do a Catahoula cur,
if that’s any help,’
pleads Selwyn from the dog house,
but no one hears the whelp.
