In the interest of fair play - Dog Haiku

My good friend Kathy McG. (who gave me the book of cat haiku) sent along some nice Dog-ku to balance things out a bit. Now she didn't pass on the name of the dog haiku book, but I'm going out on a limb here, and I'm going to guess it's called DOG-KU (since there are several by that name, so it's a safe bet.) Kathy McG.! Have you figured out how to get in the comments section yet?

And if Buddy were to write dog haiku, you know this is what he'd say.

I snore and pass wind
In the corner of your room
And yet you love me....

This treat connoisseur
Has not yet met a thong he
Could not digest whole.

Why sprawl on the floor
When the sofa beckons with
Plump, soft, new cushions?

My dog was too happy, too perky and too dumb to do her breeds (Akita and Blue Heeler) proud, but I will try - enjoy!

Here you are- what has
taken you so long with my
dinner? Slurp - yummy!

I spin in circles
excited to be alive
but why so dizzy?

Why can't I ever
enter the house? Allergies
are a human myth.

I don't know who you
are, but come, sit down, pet me.
You can have the T.V.

YAY! Well done Julie!

I especially like the third one. Allergies are a human myth. Hahaha!

But I just noticed the last one has one syllable too many - doh!

The T.V. is yours!
