Hit or Miss
The poem recounts the predicament of two dogs: Dash, whose master cannot shoot any game, and Don, whose master shoots not only game, but all manner of other animals and people. Dash claims of his master: 'The great Balloon that paid the visit / Across the water, he would miss it!' (167). When hunting, his master 'goes in gaiters and in fustian, / Like Captain Ross' (169).
