danny reaches for straws:
: here's something else...
: Sirius is often called the dogstar
: dogstar.... doggone
: anyone know how long its been called dogstar?

As long as that thing with four legs that barks
has been called a dog (a thousand years?):
Sirius has been a part of the Bigger Dog
since, I guess, Egyptian times.

reprinted by Dover -- I must get my copy out of its box!)
