If My Dogs Wrote Haikus

13 Apr

I’ve tried to train you
but still, you sit on my couch
No! Bad human! bad!

 

You smell like a dog.
You smell like another dog.
Scoundrel! Traitor! Slut!

 

I dream of running
of chasing squirrels and such
Wake me if you dare.

 

We’re out for a walk
Look! Here comes another dog.
My sidewalk! All mine!

 

You’ve been gone so long!
It’s been years and years and years.
Now, the world is right.


Noise! I hear a noise!

Do you hear it? Do you? Huh?
Why do you shush me? 

 

Don’t insult me, please.
That dog is just on t.v
I know that, you fool.

 

My bowl is empty.
Your plate is full of good food.
The universe sucks.

 

I have a big day.
Nap, bark, eat, play, nap, nap, nap
Whew! Workaholic!

      Thanks! Wow, you’ve got a good eye–you could tell they were Yorkies even in that dog pile, huh? 🙂

    Exactly what your dog is saying, can’t you hear him?

    May I have your permission to reblog this post, with links and credits to you and your blog of course? If not, I understand. I just think that these haikus are so good that they should be shared and read by everyone! 🙂

      Sure you can reblog! I’m happy you liked the haikus! (The dogs are happy, too)

    Brilliant! I can’t decide between the traitor, the fool or the workaholic!!

    I’ve always wondered how cool it would be to be a dog…with a good master / mistress of course. I mean, eat, poop, pee, bark and nap. Sigh!

    Haha, I have a dog too. And that’s exactly how he feels too!
    Oh, and that was ADORABLE.
