Basic JavaScript - Testing Objects for Properties

Tell us what’s happening:
I can not seem to get undefined

  **Your code so far**
var myObj = {
gift: "pony",
pet: "kitten",
bed: "sleigh",
city: "Seattle"
}
function checkObj(Obj, checkProp) {
// Only change code below this line
if (myObj.hasOwnProperty(checkProp)) {
  return myObj[checkProp];
} else {
  return "Not Found";
}
// Only change code above this line
}


console.log(checkObj({pet: "kitten", bed: "sleigh"}, "gift"))
