Haiku by Dogs

______________________________


My bark, sharp and fierce
Trying to protect you from
The FedEx driver
______________________________

For you I’ll create
Artistic works of poo, since
You save them in bags
______________________________

Swallowed by regret
For I forgot to smell the
Third bush on the left
______________________________

Your breath intrigues me
And I am fairly certain
You had ribs for lunch
______________________________

Apologies, but
How could I have known that was
Your cheesy sandwich?
______________________________

Puddled on the floor
A symbol of excitement
You’ve come to visit
______________________________

Crestfallen, for my
Nose cannot fit more deeply
Inside your slip-on
______________________________

But I thought I heard
You say you didn’t want that
Folder of receipts
______________________________

You say the leash word
And I’m no longer obsessed
With sniffing cat butt
______________________________

Just when you thought I
Could not sleep closer to you
You were wrong again
______________________________

Some bonus dog haiku . . .

Love my master;
Thus I perfume myself with
This long-rotten mouse.

I lie belly-up
In the sunshine, happier than
You ever will be

Today I sniffed
Many dog behinds—I celebrate
By kissing your face.

My human is home!
I am so ecstatic I have
Made a puddle

Look in my eyes and
Deny it. No human could
Love you as much I do
