Haiku by Dog: Message

Haiku by Dog: to all who pass by / a message: with this mark / I call this tree mine

Today’s haiku is by Jasper.

To those who can read Jasper’s message, it’s pretty clear what he’s saying. Of course it is possible, others have been here before, each leaving a similar claim.

I imagine, to a dog, a tree, telephone pole or fire hydrant might look like those bulletin boards you see in college campus centers or grocery stores: layers of messages written on scraps overlapping each other.

No wonder my dogs spend so much time inhaling when they find a particularly good sniff. They want to make sure they don’t miss any important notices.

Do your dogs have a favorite bulletin board?

    We’ve got our choice spots we have to “post” on every time we pass.

  2. And this tree, and this post, and this spot . . . .

    ok,… now I know it Jasper and I will write my name on another tree :o)

  4. Peyton says:

    I wonder how many times they have to post on a spot before it is enough. There are some places where they must have posted enough, maybe not

  5. It looks like you have to write and rewrite your message before all who pass understand it ! Purrs

  6. MOL! We call this “pee mail.” :)

    Nicely done. Yes, we, too, call that “pee mail.” :)

    Daisy says she must fragrance anything anywhere that has another dog’s fragrance. She’s an “over-fragrancer”. ;)

  9. Well I like to read the same bulletin boards every morning, but I also have to leave a few myself! Love Dolly

    Poor Jasper being captured in such an unflattering position. It reminds us how we continue to rub our faces all over the house and humans to try to claim those things for ourselves. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo
