Dogged Determination

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?

If a dog from Germany
is called Germana
And one from America
Is called Americana

Then why does Angelica,
Who comes from Africa,
Call her dog
Johannes Gysbert van der Merwe?
