Haiku by Dog: How

Haiku by Dog: question arises / from within snow’s cold depths: how  / do I lift my leg?


The challenges of snow expressed in Haiku by Dog. All three of my pups had to figure out how to take care of business when the depth of the snow made it a bit of a challenge. Even under normal circumstances, there seems to be many things to take into consideration before they settle on the perfect spots. Though the snow created another layer of complexity, they made do. (Couldn’t resist the pun.)

Do your pets have certain requirements that need to be met before they do their thing? A patch of grass, tamped down snow, a clean litter box, privacy?

    I love being out in the snow and playing, so any excuse to stay outdoors is welcome!

    Good question, we don’t have snow atm, but I definitely have to take my time finding the ‘right’ spot. This is particularly important before bedtime. Mummy doesn’t seem to understand this and often moans that I take too long lol

  3. YES, Sugar had the same issues, maneuvering and doing her doggy business. We had to make a special path for her. Be Safe n Stay Warm. Happy BlogPaws WW. Golden Woofs

  4. BOL! I do wonder how all you dogs do your business in the snow.
    Happy WW,

  5. Daisy sure is lucky to be a Florida dog! Happy WW!

  6. It’s hard to do anything when the snow is to your belly.

  7. Mr. N takes forever to find just the right spot. Onyxx goes at the first grassy spot.

  8. At least its not over your head then you really got problems! Love Dolly

    very profound. 🙂 happy ww!

  10. Miss Daisy waits for her brother Scooby to go first, then she goes in the same spot.

  11. I have often wondered how dogs – especially small dogs- handle tinkling in the snow. Around here the snow gets pretty deep! Great haiku 🙂

    Now that’s what we call a profound Haiku!

  13. I don’t mind going even if the snow is up to my belly. If there is no tree/shrub/mound to claim, I just squat! And then the only way you can tell I’m peeing is by my tail being way up!

  14. Phod will do a standing pee in the deep snow. He needs to be off leash and in the bush/side of the yard to poop. Hailey will pee where she wants, but is also picky about where to poop. She doesn’t like the deep snow so this has been causing some problems.

    Love your haiku!

  15. Great Haiku! And your pooch looks like he could be Bocci’s first cousin>>>

  16. Uh oh…that’s a tough one.

  17. Poor child. this does present a problem and the look on his face says it all.
