Haiku by Dog: Gone

Haiku by Dog: not on the ground or / up in the tree, the squirrel's gone / but I'll be waitingToday’s haiku is by Jasper.

When my dogs see a squirrel, their brains short-circuit. One minute, Jasper is thinking,”What a lovely day for a sniff around the yard,” Tucker is investigating the latest dead worm, and Lilah is watching birds, probably noting that the woodpecker on our feeder is a Downy Woodpecker as opposed to a Hairy Woodpecker, which is much larger.

Then: SQUIRREL!

All thoughts are re-routed to “Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel!”

And the chase is on.

Which is why I’m glad my dogs can’t climb trees.

Because if they did, I am certain they would chase the bushy-tailed little bird-food thieves right up the trunk and out onto the branches.

It wouldn’t end well. At least not for the dogs.

Thus the squirrels are destined to hurl rodential curses down upon my earthbound and very frustrated canines. And everyone lives to see another day.

What are you happy that your pets can’t do?

    Squirrels are the main thing on every cat’s mind around here. They have stare downs through the kitchen window all day long. Love watching the cats and the squirrels watching each other. The dogs would go bonkers if they lived here. What, no snow on the ground? XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Those darned squirrels are always running around in our backyard, too. Mom and Dad think they’re cute, but we’d like to give them a good old fashioned whapping! :)
