Haiku by Dog: Doga

downward-facing dog / more elegant when performed / by a real canine #HaikuByDog

Today’s haiku is by Jasper.

Every morning Jasper goes through a very specific series of poses: a front stretch, a back stretch, and a leg stretch—all of which look like the canine equivalents of yoga poses. 

He always ends his series with a floppity—that unique shaking motion that dogs—and cats for that matter—use to loosen up.

That’s where he loses me; if I tried that shaking motion, I’d either throw out my back or trigger my vertigo. 

It’s very obvious that whoever named the poses lived with dogs and cats. I’m just glad that a floppity isn’t considered part of the yoga repertoire. 

Do your pets do yoga?
