Dogged Determination

If a dog from Dalmatia,
Is called a Dalmatian,
And one from The Alsace,
Is called an Alsatian

Why does Li Wong,
Who comes from Hong Kong,
Call his dog
Char Sui Chow Mein?

A Dog is a Man's…

This is either rather a naughty poem making fun of the fact that the Chinese are thought by many people to eat dog meat, or a thoughtful and serious poem about cultural differences and how one nation will judge another by its own, arbitrary standards. I think I prefer the first explanation.
