The Dog's Cold Nose by Arthur Guiterman

When Noah, perceiving 'twas time to embark,
Persuaded the creatures to enter the ark,
The dog with a friendliness truly sublime
Assisted in herding them two at a time.
He drove in the elephants, zebras, and gnus,
Until they were packed like a box full of screws.
The cat in the cupboard, the mouse on the shelf,
The bug in the crack, then he backed in himself.
But such was the lack of available space,
He couldn't tuck all of him into the place;
So after the waters had flooded the plain
And down from the heavens fell blankets of rain,
He stood with his muzzle thurst out through the door
The whole forty days of the terrible pour!
Because of which drenching, zoologists hold,
The nose of a healthy dog is always cold!
