In Honor of #NationalPoetryDay, I Offer….

DOG HAIKU

first the sun came up
and then we went outdoors to
enjoy the new day.

HOW RUMPY GOT HIS NAME

My human is old and she’s grumpy.
Her clothing is wrinkled and frumpy.
The bitch, with some brass,
said I’m a pain in the ass,
And that’s how I got the name Rumpy.

CAT POETRY:

You laughed when I chased and then
ate the bug.
But now you are pissed that I
puked on the rug.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HUMANS AND DOGS

Humans want all that they can see
But dogs are content to let things be.

  2. I always wondered how you got your name Rumpy. You are such a noble and handsome dog, the name did not fit until now.
