Golden Trouble 🐾🐾 #Haiku

My bucking bronco
Is three-quarters spoiled trouble
A.K.A. Poodle

She’s one-fourth Golden
Retriever who hunts socks and shoes
For a game of chase

Here’s a short clip…

Scrub-jay ruckus

Blue-jays arrived in the West

To build a nearby nest 

Using their natural defense 

They take turns on their descent 

Tormenting my pet

From the safety of the fence 

It’s  quite an event

To witness 

Ruffin’ it

If only we could be happy
as dogs chewing
on hair ties, and everything else
it decides to try

Under this great, big blue sky
without asking what or why
learning, always learning
wrong from right

Merrily going through life
with your humans at your side
knowing it’d be all right
as you lounged tonight

I can’t staunch these tears that flow
Heavy, my head is held to the pillow
Staring out, through a sunny window

It was you, there from the ground
Who always lifted me up when down
Now it’s just emptiness with no sound

That clickety-clack tap against tiles
Rushing down the hall to bring me smiles
Nine and half years, we covered many miles

Hand out for your greeting at my bed
You knew when I woke without lifting my head
I didn’t need papers, your love & duty was purebred

You tried to tell us and fought hard to survive
We tried our damnedest, it felt like the longest ride
They tried CPR to revive, but we had to say our goodbyes
