Our first president seems to have done it all
He was the first to take the reigns of the nation
Having fought in several terrible wars
But his life was not just about keeping score.
Despite all that he accomplished in his time
This great man was able to have a personal life too.
So much so that one has to wonder where he found the time
An expert a many things with no apparent reason or rhyme.
George Washington had many things that he enjoyed
And apparently dogs were pretty high on the list.
He not only had a large number, a large number indeed,
But he bred them as well, and started a new breed.
For anyone with an American foxhound
You will find that they first started with this highly original man.
Whether out of love or interest in the hunt
It is too bad he cannot say though he would be blunt.
Though not a scandal, it is of great interest
To find that one of our founding fathers founded so much more
Giving the world another type of dog to adore
And securing another page in his own voluminous lore.
