Bedtime for Haiku and Vega.

Vega & Haiku



Bedtime For Haiku and Vega
“It’s bedtime, Haiku;

It’s time for beddie byebyes!

See you at breakfast.”
As for Vega…
“Vega, bedtime. Bedtime!

Vega! Time for bed, Vega!

Vega! It’s BEDTIME!”
And there they are cuddled up for the night

After their exertions from the day.


Gotta love ’em.


Vega meets Agev – #NotAHaiku

Vega and Agev


“I met a dog called Agev, today –

She was pretty, 

In a roundabout sort of way.”

Streams of Paddling in the New Forest

Vega and Haiku cooling down

Vega and Haiku cooling down

Along with some glorious mud

Paddling in a stream
That crossed our path;
The two pups cooled their warmth
And quaffed of the murky ale;
They ran and played along the bank
And splashed merrily into the water
Until a passing herd of humankinds
Took their attention for a minute;
Until, once passed, there resumed
A game of tag amidst the shallows.

Headline News: Dogs Climb Trees!

Vega and Haiku: Tree-climbers extraordinaire!

Vega and Haiku: Tree-climbers extraordinaire!

Vega: I could climb a tree…
… right to the very top!

Haiku: Me, too!

Vega: You? You’re only a half-pint; you’d never be able to climb a tree.

Haiku: I’m as good as you!

Vega: Huh! Challenge! Accepted!

Haiku: Start! Climbing!

Narrator: And the above is what occurred…

Haiku: Not a stick, silly!

Vega: Then it’s cow poo!

Haiku: Yup!

Dogs on Trains (You’ve got to believe them)

Vega, 1st Class Passenger.

Vega, 1st Class Passenger.

I’m looking out the window
At the cows going by
I’m on the train to somewhere
But, I really don’t know why.

Because, I’m a dog of leisure
With all the world to see
Travelling’s a pleasure
As I travel First Class style – comfy!

There’s no rubbing shoulders with the smelly hoi-polloi
I have the greatest leg room of them all;
And no-one else I’ve seen has had a tickle of their tum;
If only one would stop and throw my ball.

Train travel, first class,
I’ll always recommend
Just bring a human with you
‘They’ have much more fun when they travel with a friend.

And it’s there ‘I’ win!”.
