Bernard The Saint Bernard Dog’s Yelp In The Alps

dog-1.jpg

Bernard the Saint Bernard Dog was fantastic at yodelling,

In fact, he burst into song, whenever he heard a cow bell ring.

Bernard the Saint Bernard Dog every had musical feet,

When he went hiking in the Alps,

This furry footprints rang out with a musical beat.

But Bernard the Saint Bernard Dog didn’t know what to sing about,

He usually woke up all the sheep every time he gave a shout !

Bernard the Saint Bernard Dog had the most remarkable collar,

Which flashed on and off magically, every time he gave a holla !

He yodelled in the morning, he yodelled at night,

His yodelling sounded as though his trousers were too tight !

Bernard the Saint Bernard Dog practised quite out of tune,

In fact, his vocal chords soon became croaky

… and his yodelling more like a croon.

High – 250 / 100 x 45 = 112.5; Low – 250 – 112.5 = 137.5; 8. 300 – (300 / 100 x 60 = 180) = 120; 9. Bernard – 150 / 100 x 30 = 45 / Bear – 150 – 45 = 105; 10. 5 x 3 = 15 therefore, tulips – 3 x 15 = 45, daffs – 8 x 15 = 120
