More Dog Haiku, Vallhund mainly

Vallhund Priorities

I don’t want my food
Or a walk. Mom is upset.
Nothing else matters.

Acoustic Defense

That is a big dog!
If I bark fast and loudly,
He won’t see I’m small

Vallhund Nap

I am so sleepy
I drag myself to my bed
To nap belly up.

Blaze’s Herding

I am a BIG DOG!
Who can fit in small spaces.
Listen up, you sheep!

Blaze’s Priorities

It’s too hot to move.
How can you hike? What? FISHING!
I’m right with you, Boss.

Dog Dreams

You are sound asleep
Yet your feet twitch and nose sniffs
You woof, and run on.

Hungry Pups

A slow moving lump
At once piling and spreading
Until all find teats.


I streamline my ears,
Tuck my butt for more power,
And run like the wind!


I’m on my way now–
Didn’t hear your first three calls.
Wait, I must pee here.

A Great Re-Leaf

Mom is raking leaves.
Attack rakes! Pee on leaf bags!
We are great helpers!


Mom! Mom! Mom! Look there!
The neighbor has put up lights!
Dangerous, no doubt!

Decorations Two

Look look, Mom! The lights
Make strange shadows on the snow–
Bark at them with us, Mom!

Of Course

The sidewalk is clear,
So of course we don’t use it–
Deep snow is more fun!

Winter Night Run

Clear night. Full Moon. Cold.
Vallhunds race down the wide path–
Two ghosts with shadows

Fluffy Snow Night

Cold night and deep snow–
Two vallhunds race happily–
Fur-covered snow plows!

Blowing Coat

Once or twice a year
I shed more fur than I have
It defies physics!
