I realized something- everyone assumes that the dog’s name is Bingo. It is just as likely that the farmer’s name is Bingo. Just check out the song:
I don’t once see evidence anywhere in the song that when using the pronoun “his” it is intended to refer to the dog. The farmer just was well may be male. Neither the farmer’s nor the dog’s gender is made clear by the song. Our canine friend could very well be a female named Suzy, and his owner is a farmer named Bingo.
I hope this met both criterion of this board being both mundane and pointless
