Carpe Shar-Pei (Seize the Wrinkled Dog)

Dog Haiku

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








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








Today I sniffed
Many dog butts - I celebrate
By kissing your face.








I sound the alarm!
Paperboy - come to kill us all -
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!








I sound the alarm!
Garbage man - come to kill us all -
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!








I lift my leg and
Whiz on each bush. Hello, Spot -
Sniff this and weep.








I Hate my choke chain -
Look, world, they strangle me! Ack !

Ack ! Ack ! Ack ! Ack ! Ack !







Sleeping here, my chin
On your foot - no greater bliss - well,
Maybe catching cats.








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




The disposition of noble dogs is to be gentle with people they know and the opposite with those they don't know...How, then, can the dog be anything other than a lover of learning since it defines what's its own and what's alien.
