Oh Dog! Dear DeDe here with Rumpy for a joint post!
Today is the great Haiku Challenge- Snow Edition!
Now, as you know, we love to write poetry, especially haiku. It doesn’t mean we write good haiku, but we don’t let that stop us!
Here are our submissions:Footprints in the snow. Who dares enter my backyard? A sniff will reveal. Purple morning sky. Snow blankets the countryside. Come Jen, let’s go play! Let’s play in the snow! Let’s rip, run, and roll around and then eat cookies!
Alright you guys! It’s YOUR turn!

Woo woo Rumpy, Yours are great!!!! Let’s Haiku challenge!!!

It snowed during the night
Covering the ground ready for a play
Waiting for us jumping on!

Cool haiku. 😎
Snow coming ? Not yet
Hoping for the big white out
Paw prints and quiet
Awwwwww….. peaceful anticipation. Awesome!
If I knew what Haiku was I might give it a bash. 🙂
It’s a form of poem. If you check it out on Wikipedia there’s some good info. I write mine in the form of 3 lines- 5/7/5 syllables per line.
wow rumpy I love your haiku, it is beautiful…
kiss the ground
makes me feel
to hop and play
Amazing! Doesn’t writing about snow just sound peaceful and serene?
No snow is forecast.
I venture out to the shops.
And slip on the ice.
oh no! I sure hope that didn’t really happen my friend!
Snow on the mountains.
City nestling down below.
The view from my chair.

Tasty frozen socks
Dangle from gaping mouth
A taste of heaven.

In their cold beauty they fall
Quilt over sleeping flowers
Oh Dog! You’re good at this Maria!!!! woo woo woo!
Thanks Rumpy! Your poetry challenge got my brain working and awake this morning! =)
OH! Dog, I love those Haikus !!very technical!! 😉
They’re lots of fun aren’t they?
It snowed over night,
Oh no! Not snow!,
It is too cold,
I run back inside
*giggles* I love it! Do you really not like snow?
I hate snow, and cold weather.
No snow yet down here
Almost that time of the year
Soon it will arrive
White clouds in my ears
Icicles from our noses
Can’t wait for the fun
I luvs Maria’s Haiku…
That’s fantastic MissNoodles! I can’t wait for snow either!
softly falling snow
pine boughs disappear tonight
shimmer in morning
white flakes cover ground
cold wind makes drifts by the fence
good day to stay in
We’re glad we just see
snow in far away mountains!
Love and loud purring
(from all of us)!
An amazing collaborative effort! It’s so good to see all of you again!
I’ve never seen snow where I am. But Paw explained what it is, so here goes…
What is this white cold?
Confusion reigns is not known
Wet paws, shake, lick clean
And this is what Paw imagines my reaction would be to a snowy landscape…
I do not step out
Paws high with feline disdain
Ears cocked, no way!
I love ’em Nuala and Paw!!!!
Wow! We love your haikus 🙂
Snow in Miami?
We think that would be crazy!
Dreams suffice for now
-Deanna and the Crew: Harley, Scarlett, Chelsea and Roory
Oh Dog! That would be wild!!!!
Well we are so terrible at writing a haikus, we won’t even bore you with one. But we sure did enjoy all the others. Take care and have a super Sunday.
Still we thank you for joining us today!!!
Snow days can be fun.
But warm and cozy I choose.
Chedster peeks outside.
Mr. Cheddar sends a big headbonk. He enjoyed writing this haiku!!! 🙂
Peek-a-boo! I see you!
I’m not a big poetry person but I love that first one! ‘A sniff will reveal’! LOL! So true.
Hmm, let me think .. what can I come up with?
Blue blooded greyhound
Thin body, thin fur.
Where is my bed?
very, very nice words!
Peace to all of you-including animals 😉
Oh Dog! Thanks! *dances to all the cool music Xandi plays*
The paw shakes
Before going outside
In anticipation of the cold
*brrrrrrr* You stay warm little kitty!
Rumpy, we wanted to let you know that we love your Haiku! Also, the photo of you and DeDe is wonderful! Do we also see June Buggie’s tail? xx
Of course! June Buggie isn’t gonna miss an opportunity to get into the picture!
Great haiku, Rumpy and DeDe. And a very nice photo too.
Happy Sunday to you.
Woos – Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning
woo woo woo you guys!
Not good at Haiku but I can’t resist writing a poem so here goes:
Powdery, peaceful crystals
Covering my world.
That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing with us all!
adrift in the wind
tiny fairies floating by
tickle cheeks with wands
That is awesome!!!!!
Zoomies in the snow!
Pals run together fastest
Wanting more snow !
Thanks for visiting my blog today, please come back and sign up like I do for you!

Hello! Blogspot says your blog doesn’t exist! *scratches head*
Hi Rumpy – here’s mine:
Red Kong lands in snow.
Fluffy drifts conceal my toy.
Dig, dig, dig – FOUND IT!
Awesome! And I have a red Kong too! woo woo woo!
I love poetry and also haiku poetry too. Once again you fascinated me. I loved these lovely pieces, Thank you, with my love, nia
Your dogs are adorable! Is that a kitty tail I see on the right? 🙂
Great ‘Ku’s’ 🙂 We tend to write horrible ku’s with terrible events.. sort of ironic insights… so you asked for it and here they are…. our apologies….
frosty breath rising
in the quiet morning air
where are those darn keys?
Sparrows in the snow
flitting all about, Hawk Dives
takes one out, Lunchtime!!!!
IN THE MOONLIGHT
softly falling snow
glistening in the moonlight
I sigh with delight
frosty breath at night
snow crunching under my feet
snow is in the air
with the winds howling at night
yet warm is my hut
Okay, terrible and the imagery is naughty…. ironic, and more… but it is all in fun.
The Collies and Chuck 🙂
Hi Rumpy, I haven’t done much haiku, but here goes… 🙂
on skeletons of branches
looked out my window…
snowflakes are falling everywhere…
where do we go now?
to the couch to cuddle with your dog or cat!
Let us be so wise as to rip, run, roll around and then go eat cookies! Wonderful joy in these haikus. Snowball fight!
Black and white collie
Our neurotic wonder dog
Afraid of his dish!
That strikes me as pretty much a un-improvable doggy perfection in snow haiku, Rumpy!
