Hamilton's rap:

“Hamilton’s my name but Halifax is my home
I flew here from Steel City in 2019 with my bone
I’ve got cutie cocker vibes and I’m mixed with a poo(dle) you can catch me on the Hali pier rocking my cool hair doo!
I’ve got energy like my besties BIG K & MIKEY P
I really love that they be scratchin’ my back just for free
I’m about to be 3 and I know where to go pee
I want to tell you all about my cool qualities
You can call me Hami, Dude or Bud but only if you stay to give me a good belly rub!”
