Haiku by Dog: Sometimes

Haiku by Dog: sometimes a slow wag can say more than a loud bark,  but only some times


Today’s Haiku by Dog is by Jasper.

It’s the slow wag that gets me. The gentle thump thump against the floor. A slight swish in the grass. A lift of the tail tip. It’s not used to greet you; that calls for much more exuberant wagification. The slow wag happens you walk by, or look in a dog’s direction–and he’s happy simply to be in your presence, or to be acknowledged by you.

Does your dog do the slow wag? What is it like and when is it used?
